Welcome to Pinecrest Elementary
In the past, many families have sent treats to school to celebrate a birthday. We will celebrate birthdays to make your child’s day special in our classroom!
To help us not exclude students with various food allergies from this celebration, we are asking that NO TREATS are sent to school. However, your child may bring a non-food item (pencils, stickers, erasers, etc.) to pass out to the class or donate a book or educational game to our classroom. If food treats are sent to school, they will be returned home in your child’s backpack.
Thanks for your cooperation!

MY CHILD IS GOING HOME FROM SCHOOL WITH A FRIEND, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If your child goes home with a friend after school please send a note to their teacher and call the office. If your child intends to ride a bus home with their friend, the bus driver also requires a note. Students will not be allowed to deviate from their regular going home routine without a note giving your permission.
