  • Welcome Back to the 2019-2020 School Year!

    Posted by Heike Cook on 8/27/2019

    Welcome back to the best high school in Texas!  Pflugerville High School staff and teachers were very excited to see all of our returning students as well as the new Panthers in the halls.  We hope that the transition from your summer routine to school life has been a smooth one.

    Speaking of transition, Pfisd recently changed our student information system from Focus to Skyway.  As part of the annual re-enrollment process, we included a prepopulated enrollment form in the first day packet which contained most of the enrollment information previously provided with the exeption of the emergency contact information.  The emergency contact inforamtion was not able to transfer over to the new syestm so it is imperative that you update this form and return as soon as possible.

    Please verify the information on the enrollment form, make any necessary corrections and additions and return the signed doucment along with the color coded release forms to Pflugerville High School.

    Please know that Pflugerville High School cannot release a student to anyone that is not listed as a parent/guardian or emergency contact, therefore it is vital that this form be returned with the updated emergency contact information.

    First day packets were due back to PHS by Friday, August 23rd.  We will continue to honor the emergcney contact information form the 2018-2019 school year until Friday, August 30th. After the 30th we will use what was submitted on the 2019-2020 Enrollment Forms.

    Should you have any questions regarding this process pelased contact us at 512 594 0534.

  • PfISD Announces Winner of My Road My Future Video Contest

    PfISD announces winner of My Road My Future video contest

     

    May 20, 2019 – A student video from Pflugerville High School raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving received more than 2,800 views on YouTube last month to be

    named the winner of the My Road My Future PSA contest.

    Students who made the winning video were presented with a trophy from Pflugerville ISD Police and Travis County Emergency Services District #2 during a recognition ceremony at PHS on Friday afternoon.

    Pflugerville High School’s team of Jacob Claxton, Michael Hornsby, Mac Bain, Lily Bitner, Alex Vo and Ava Carrasco won the video contest based on number of views on YouTube after the District announced two finalists in April. The title of their video was “If You Can’t Text and Walk, Why Text and Drive?” and featured students reading text messages on their phones while walking through the halls at school with sound effects from a car crash when they ran into each other and spilled their belongings on the floor.

    The contest was held in partnership between Pflugerville ISD and Travis County Emergency Services District #2. This year marks the second year of the partnership of My Road My Future and the first year of the video contest.

    “My Road My Future has the potential to save lives well beyond prom and graduation season,” PfISD Police Chief Patrick Petherbridge said. “We were impressed by the videos submitted by all the participants and are happy to announce Pflugerville High School as the winner of our first public service announcement contest for distracted driving awareness.”

    In addition to the trophy from police and fire, the winning team’s video will receive special publicity on the school district and fire department’s websites and social media channels. Their video will also be pitched to local press for potential media coverage.

    Video submissions were required to be no longer than one minute and focus on at least one type of distracted driving: visual, manual or cognitive. Common distraction sources include texting, grooming or applying make-up, eating, or reaching for something inside the vehicle such as a personal item, phone, or the control panel.
