Pine Ridge Prep Update
August 10, 2022
Welcome from Mrs. Tanner & Mrs. Banzhaf
Dear Pine Ridge Prep Families,
Welcome back to the 2022-2023 school year! Staff reported back last week and we have been busy preparing for students to arrive! As a reminder, the first day of school is August 18th. Our school day runs from 8:30-3:30, which is a change from last year for any returning students.
This is the first of our weekly parent newsletters for this year. We try to make this very comprehensive and include school and district information that you need, as well as community resources. Please read carefully each week as this is the major form of communication you will receive. We send this out via email and post it on our website and Facebook page.

As always, if you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to us!
Thank you for the privilege of serving you ~
Mrs. Gabrielle Tanner, Principal
Mrs. Shelley Banzhaf, Building Leader Intern
