    Posted by Ann Breaux on 3/27/2020

    For all of us the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly changing our world.  The only thing we are certain of is uncertainty. We may not have a connection to our school right now, but our yearbook still has many blank pages to be filled. Now more than ever, your yearbook staff needs your help!

    We are asking you to upload pictures to the Jostens app, ReplayIt.  Download it, create an account, find our school.  To upload, click on Photo Stream, then Take Photo (you can just pull a photo from your images). Please only school appropriate images and avoid heavily filtered images.  Each photo will be screened and approved and not every picture submitted will be used.

    For every picture approved, you will be entered into a drawing for a free yearbook for 2020 or 2021.  *Must be a PHS student to qualify and name must be attached to submitted photo (done automatically based on your settings).

    In case you come up with blank lines, here is what needs to be entered.

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
