MINNESOTA SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS
Weather Warning Terms
The National Weather Service uses the words, "watch" and "warning" to alert you to potentially dangerous weather.
Watch - Be Alert!
A watch means weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather to occur. In other words, a "watch" means watch out for what the weather could do, and be ready to act accordingly.
Warnings - Act Now!
A warning means the weather event is imminent or occurring somewhere in the defined warning area and that people need to take shelter as soon as possible.
PINECREST YEARBOOK ORDERING IS NOW OPEN THROUGH APRIL 20
Order now so you don't miss out!
For the past few years, we have been fortunate to have the cost of our year books partially offset by several donors. These donations allowed for us to provide yearbooks to all students at Pinecrest, unfortunately, these donations are nearly depleted. If you do not pre-order a year book for your child this year, he/she will NOT receive one. Ordering will be online and the link is https://online-pay.memorybook.com/parent and the pay code required to order is 86781.
