Mrs. Danielle Goetsch, the Pierce High School guidance counselor, will also be available on Wednesday, August 5th from 9:00-3:00.  7th graders will receive their schedules on Thursday, August 6th during 7th grade orientation.  A reminder to all parents that school begins on Thursday, August 13th  at the Jr.-Sr. High School. 

7th Grade and New Student Orientation at PHS
Pierce Jr.-Sr. High School will hold their annual orientation session for 7th graders and new students on Thursday, August 6th at 6:15 pm at the high school.  All parents and 7th grade or new students are highly encouraged to attend.  The orientation session provides the students with the opportunity to meet their teachers and locate their classrooms and locker.  All of the seating in the gymnasium will be accessible for those people who wish to socially distance. The new students will receive their class schedules along with instructions for the beginning of the school year.  They will also check out their laptop computers. A reminder to all parents that school begins on Thursday, August 13th  at both the Jr.-Sr. High School and Elementary School. 

Laptop Computer Check-Out
Pierce Jr.-Sr. High School students will be able to check out their laptop computers for the school year on Friday, August 7th at the high school from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. 7th Graders will check out their computers during new student orientation on Thursday evening, August 6th at 6:15 pm. Students who are unable to come to the school on Friday, the 7th, will simply get their laptop computer on the first day of school, Thursday, August 13th. Parents and families are reminded that insurance covering accidental damage or loss to the computer can again be purchased at the high school for $25. To protect the student and his/her family from accidental damage charges, computers will not be checked out to any student until the $25 fee has been paid or the parent/guardian has spoken to Mark Brahmer, the principal, to specifically turn down the insurance option.

Fall Sport and Activity Meetings
A meeting will be held on Thursday evening, August 6th at 7:30 pm at the high school for all parents of junior and senior high school fall athletes.  One of the main purposes of the meeting is to explain Pierce High School’s concussion protocol, a requirement of the Nebraska School Activities Association. This meeting is also an opportunity for coaches to meet parents and explain the expectations of their child’s sport. If a parent is unable to attend the required meeting, please contact the school at 402-329-6217 or 402-329-4677. The presentation highlighting the required concussion protocol will be recorded and available for viewing on piercepublic.org, the school’s website, by Friday afternoon, August 7th. A form will be accessible online that a parent will need to download, print, and sign confirming they’ve watched the presentation.
