Pine Road Grows Great Kids

November 11, 2021

A MESSAGE FROM MR. COLE

Dear Pine Road Families,


I first want to thank the entire school community for the support we received at the Halloween parade last month. The attendance was great, and we were so happy to relaunch such a treasured tradition!


I will keep my remarks brief in this newsletter as there is a lot of important information for you to read through in the rest of this edition of the Pine Road Express! Two very important highlights to make sure you find more information about below!


  • Pine Road will be partnering with Eric’s RX Shoppe to offer a Vaccination Clinic for students aged 5-11. Registration is required (and limited!). If you are interested, please be sure to register below!

  • We are thrilled to be launching our new FirstView Bus App! This App will allow families to monitor when their bus is approaching their home to get a more accurate arrival time! All the necessary information to register is included further down in this newsletter.


We look forward to seeing you all during Parent Confernces!


Sincerely,

Scott Cole

Principal

Pine Road Highlights

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.

Vaccination Clinic

Lower Moreland School District and Eric's RX Shoppe are happy to partner to provide the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine for ages 5-11. Any current Lower Moreland School District Student ages 5-11 is eligible. A parent/guardian must be present at all times during both clinics.


Walk-ins will not be permitted. No other vaccine for any other age group will be permitted during this clinic.

The vaccine schedule is as follows (at Pine Road Elementary) :​​

  • Dose 1: Saturday, November 13th from 3:00 - 6:00 PM

  • Dose 2: Saturday, December 4th from 3:00 - 6:00 PM

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!
