    Changes to Internet Filtering @ Home
    As a result of recent changes in the FCC's Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), Internet filtering at home is no longer required on PAHS students' school-issued MacBook computers.  The computers will still be filtered in school, but filtering at home is causing some issues with access to educational sites that are part of our curriculum.  A letter will be sent home with midterms detailing what this change means for your student, but you can also get more information from the Principal's page or you can download the letter by clicking HERE
