A Message from Principal Dave Smith

The new school year brings with it a sense of excitement and feelings of enthusiasm. This year those feelings might also be accompanied by feelings of uncertainty and anxiety centered around distance learning. We all know the 2020-21 school year will be different than any other previous year and your feelings of uncertainty and anxiety might be overpowering your enthusiasm a bit. Please know that Patterson High has been working diligently to make distance learning not only effective, but as seamless as possible for all of our students and families. Teachers have been working hard to prepare lesson plans and digital learning platforms to maximize classroom instruction. Office staff have been working to streamline processes to make information more readily available for both students and families. Custodial staff have been working tirelessly to implement new cleaning and disinfection protocols. Everyone in the PHS community is dedicated to making sure that all members of the Patterson school community start the year safe and ready for learning. 


As the school year unfolds, we will undoubtedly be faced with new obstacles and new experiences, all of which we will work through together. Our ability to come together is what makes PHS a great place; it’s what makes us Tigers.


This school year is a new adventure, and it is an adventure we will take together. The staff and faculty of PHS is dedicated to remaining in communication with you as we navigate these uncharted waters together. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. 


Go Tigers!!!
