Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome all of you to the 2023-2024 school year at Pike-Delta-York High School. I am excited to continue to serve as principal of the high school. This year promises to be another challenging, yet exciting and productive one together, as we strive to fulfill the School’s mission of… “upholding the basic premise that all students can learn. We are committed to developing all students to their fullest potential so they may become competent, productive, socially responsible citizens in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex society. Therefore, we will encourage students to reach their highest level of academic performance, while fostering positive development of their health, attitudes, and behaviors”. We look forward to working with you to promote your student’s overall well-being and academics. Some important announcements for this school year follow in this letter.
First, our late bell rings at 8:05am. If the student is not in his or her 1st period classroom at that time they will be marked tardy. Dismissal remains at 2:50pm. Next, our policy is for you to call the school if your student will be absent that day for any reason. A hand-written note must accompany the student upon return and turned into the office within one week. Finally, please review the student handbook located on the district website under the high school tab, please pay special attention to the dress code.
The first day of school this year is Thursday, August 17, 2023. School pictures will be Tuesday, September 19, 2023.
We look forward to our partnership with you as we promote the growth of your student both socially and educationally. Please feel free to contact me personally with any questions or concerns you may have.
Yours in Education,
Douglas J. Ford, Principal
