Pine Road Express

Pine Road Grows Great Kids

November 24, 2021

A MESSAGE FROM MR. COLE

Welcome families to an early (and brief!) Pine Road Express! I hope this communication finds you and your family happy and healthy! We enjoyed having many of you back in the building this past week for parent-teacher conferences and have cherished seeing our families back in our building!


Personally, I know that the last roughly two years have taught me the value of taking time to give thanks and appreciate what I cherish the most. With both Thanksgiving and the start of Chanukah, this coming week is a great time do that reflection!


I for one am very thankful for the excellent staff and families that make up the Pine Road Community. Together we have, and will continue to achieve wonderful things for the students at Pine Road.


Sincerely,

Scott Cole

Principal

Gift Card Donation

If you and your family are interested in helping some of our LMTSD community members, please consider donating a Walmart or Target gift card. These gift cards will be a great support for families this holiday season. If you would like to donate a gift card, please drop it off to Pine Road by Friday 12/3 in an envelope labeled "school counselor." Thank you in advance for your support! Please contact Ms. Harris or Mr. Lutteroty with any questions.

First View Application

Lower Moreland Township School District has partnered with FirstView which is an app for parents that allows for direct access to the status of your child’s bus. FirstView GPS tracks the bus on a map and allows you to set up a customizable geofence around your pick-up/drop-off location, so you can be alerted when the bus is close. You can customize your notifications on the app. This is a free app for parents that can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store.


Here are the instructions for getting started with the app: FirstView Bus App. The instruction sheet has the district code and a list of the bus routes that are needed to register. Using this app is optional. The district will continue to send Connect Ed notifications about the status of bus changes or significant delays.

Dismissal Change Form

Parents, please complete this form for dismissal changes. This will help us to ensure any change of dismissal is accurately tracked!

Cafeteria Information

Please review the linked communication regarding the potential impact of supply chain issues on our school lunches. The Nutrition Group has responded to these challenges extremely well, but families are encouraged to more closely monitor our menus as they may need to shift more frequently.

Lost and Found!

Please remember to label your children's belongings when you send them to school. In the event that they are lost proper labeling is very helpful in reuniting them with their owners!


You can even help support the PTA by purchasing Mabel's labels here!


The racks will be available during conferences and then any unclaimed items will be donated afterward.
