Greetings Patrick Henry School Community! It is my honor to serve the students and staff at PH, and the Glade Spring Community once again!
Despite the tumultuous spring and fall semesters in Washington County, I hope that you, your family, and friends are well. Please know that we are all excited to see your students face, talk to your students face to face, and spend time together in a place that we hope you feel is safe…Patrick Henry High School.
As members of the community, we pledge to care for the health and wellbeing of all students, faculty and staff, our families, and your families.
We will wear face masks in all communal areas and in the classroom, we will practice physical distancing at all times, we will practice good hygiene including frequent hand washing and covering our coughs and sneezes. We will record our temperatures daily and stay home when we are not feeling well. We will follow the recommendations of the Virginia Health Department and agree to self-isolate if necessary. This is our pledge to you.
This adventure that we will begin this school year, will be a new and different one for all students, not just freshmen. We will work and support each other as we navigate through uncharted waters. The combination of in-person and online teaching and learning in addition to adhering to public health guidelines will be at times frustrating, cumbersome, and exhausting but our commitment to education has never been more important than now! While we cannot predict the future, we can adjust to meet the challenges that lie before us.
I believe this because we are Rebels! WE CAN DO THIS!
