SUBJECT: PDLHS and PDLE School Schedules for February 24-26, 2022

The Ponce de Leon High School Girls Basketball Team will be competing in the FHSAA Final Four Basketball Championships on the dates of February 23-25, 2022.  The girls have a semi-final game scheduled on Wednesday, February 23, at 8:00 PM EST, and with a win they will play in the finals on Friday, February 25 at 7:00 PM EST.

           

Due to the number of students and school staff that have indicated their intent to travel on Wednesday and possibly Friday from both of the above referenced schools, it has been determined the ability to keep our brick and mortar schools open during all or part of this time will be impractical.  The following are options that we will follow depending on the outcome of the tournament games PDLHS Lady Pirates will be participating in:

 

PDLE and PDLHS will have an early release day on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 12:30 PM CST.  There will be no school on Thursday, February 24, 2022 at either school. 

 

OPTION 1:  PDLHS Lady Pirates win their semi-final game:

 

PDLE AND PDLHS will be closed on Friday, February 25, 2022.

 

OPTION 2:  PDLHS Lady Pirates do not win their semi-final game:

 

PDLE and PDLHS will conduct school on Friday, February 25, 2022.

 

These options have been developed based on the survey of staff, support staff, and student body membership, and local community support as to their intent for attending the FHSAA Final Four.
