Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow News: February 1, 2021

Dear Parents,

At last week's Pine Hollow PTSA meeting and MDUSD Board Meeting, there was lots of discussion around the reopening of schools. Please refer to the district's Friday Letter for the latest news, which includes updates about negotiations, facilities, health data, and more.

As a school, Pine Hollow is preparing to reopen by getting every classroom set up, hallways marked, signage posted, and PPE organized. We are working as a staff to develop protocols for various site-specific situations, and come up with procedures to ensure that school runs smoothly if we return. Although we don't know when we will return, our staff wants to be fully prepared and ready when the call comes! Let me know if you have any questions and have a great week!

Ben Campopiano
Principal, Pine Hollow Middle School

Yearbook Ordering

The historic 2021 yearbook is on sale now! We obviously know that a lot of the usual school events may not be happening, BUT we have been loading every inch of this book with a reflection of what IS happening this year. Especially because it's going to be so different, it's more important than ever that we capture this history on our pages - and that's exactly what the yearbook is. It's our history book; a time capsule of this unprecedented year. And we promise you it's going to be incredible.

One thing we know for sure is that your child is NOT going to want to miss out on this book. Click HERE to purchase the 2021 yearbook. Pine Hollow order number is 6104.
