Girls' High News

Good afternoon PHSG students, I hope this email finds you safe and well! The staff and I really miss you and hope that you have been a resource for your family and friends during this trying time. The Intangible Spirit lives on and grows stronger as we face this evolving challenge.  I am sure you have heard that we will be loaning you our Chromebooks. Thank you for completing the Technology Survey. The date for distribution and all of the details have not been worked out by the District, but you will get an email with pertinent information shortly. You will need to complete the attached form and have it with you for pick-up. If you do not have a printer, please have your parent or guardian write a note stating: Principal Mesi, I, (print parent/guardian first and last name), confirm the need for a Chromebook for my child, (student first and last name and student id#). I understand that we are responsible for returning the Chromebook when school resumes or as directed by the School District of Philadelphia or the Philadelphia High School for Girls.
