The Payson High School building will be switching to our "summer hours" schedule starting on June 1 until July 30. Our summer hours are the following: Monday through Thursday: 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Occasionally, due to various trainings and other district meetings, certain school personnel might not be in the building during these posted hours. The surest way to find a specific person will be to contact them and schedule an appointment.

2021 Trivia Tournament Comes to a Close

Submitted by katie.kelly on Thu, 05/20/2021 - 18:31

Today marked the end of the 2021 PHS Trivia Tournament. It took a lot of people to make this possible. We had a record number of 21 teams compete. Shout out to Andrew Wright whose brainchild this whole thing was. Mr. Wright also comes up with all the questions so he puts in quite a bit of time doing that. Mr. Arnold and his crew, especially Ryan Shephard who ran everything behind the scenes, Katie Lossee on the cameras, and Ella Ford on the computer that ran the picture questions. And of course Justin Meyer who pulled it all together!
