Premier Students and Families,
We appreciate your cooperation during these unprecedented times. Premier’s school building will remain physically closed per Governor Ducey’s order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and close all Arizona schools through the end of the school year.
Online instruction is already in progress through Google Classroom and will continue through the end of the school year. Please utilize our website for additional details, guidance and resources via the quick links on the left side of the main page.
Premier continues working to contact every student to assess their individual needs to attend school through an online structure. We are confident that this will provide for the best education of our students during the building closure. Please read below for specific information regarding general information, online instruction, technology, and food service:
Please continue to access the school website at www.premierhighschool.com where we will provide ongoing updates. We will send additional information updates using our autodialed messaging system. You can also still reach us by phone at 623-245-1500 from 7:30am-4:00pm Monday-Friday.
Student Class Schedule:
Your student can request their schedule using the “Remind” application. We have created a quicklink for student schedules on our website with directions.
Google Classroom Codes:
Each separate classroom requires a login code to enter the class. Students will use their schedule to locate their class name and find the corresponding codes under the quicklink “Google Classroom codes” on our website.
Help Documents for Online Instruction:
Online help documents will also be added to assist students with navigating Google Classroom under the quicklink, “Online Help Documents.”
Teachers will be posting their syllabus inside each of their individual Google Classes and checking with students to ensure that they are accessing any new tools needed for attendance/instruction. Your student will be expected to complete an attendance check-in each day before 3:00pm through their online classrooms and complete assignments as needed by the posted deadlines.
Teacher Office Hours:
Teachers will have designated office hours to be available to students through Google Hangouts. Teachers will be teaching/monitoring their online classrooms during regular school hours 7:30am-4:00pm.
· English: 9:30-11:00am
· Math: 11:00am-12:30pm
· All Other Content Areas: 1:40-3:00pm
Technology for Online Instruction
Students can use any smart device (computer, cellphone, tablet, iPad, etc.) to access their online classrooms and complete work. We are currently contacting individual families and students that need additional support with technology based on their survey responses.
Several schools are offering breakfast and lunch under the Summer Food Service model as directed by the Arizona Department of Education. Should your student need food service during this time, please access the following link to find the nearest school or organization where your student can have access free breakfast and lunch. There are also two quick links on the main page of our website regarding food resources for families and students during the COVID-19 outbreak.
