  • MAKE-UP DATES:  For PCHS students, WCPSS has scheduled the following make-up days for traditional calendar schools:  March 28, April 21, June 11, and June 12. On April 10 WCPSS announced that June 13 will no longer be required as a make-up day. PCHS has more than the state-required number of instructional hours for the school year. Thus, PCHS will not be making any adjustments to its daily schedule.  State testing regulations require students to be tested during the final five school days of the school year; those dates will be June 6, 9, 10, 11, and 12 for students in Grades 9, 10, and 11.  Graduation is scheduled for June 8; thus, the exam window for seniors must occur within the window of June 2-6.  Seniors will not be expected to attend school after June 6.
