Mission & Vision for Potomac Falls High School
Attendance and Readiness
Potomac Falls promotes a school culture of personal responsibility and respectful habits. We feel these skills/ethics will benefit all students in all environments (family, work, school, career). We expect students to develop and maintain life and workplace readiness habits by arriving on time to school and classes, remaining in school for their full day, and maximizing effort and productivity in the classroom.
As members of the PFHS community, we are responsible for upholding and contributing to an atmosphere of respect, truthfulness, and integrity. Our Honor Code states, “On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this test, quiz, assignment, lab, or any other student-generated work.”
Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT)
As a BYOT school, we embrace responsible use of technology that provides deeper, more authentic, and more personalized learning experiences. Electronic devices, such as smart phones, laptops and tablets enhance, not replace, teaching and learning. When using technology in the classroom, students are expected to follow the teacher’s expectations and directions. We expect all Panthers to be Ready, Responsible and Respectful with their personal use of technology while at school and to be aware of its impact on self and others
