Pine Road Grows Great Kids

April 23, 2020


Dear Pine Road Families,

I hope that this message finds you and your family well. It is hard to believe that nearly six weeks have gone by since we were last together at Pine Road. Over the last several weeks I have been so impressed with the resiliency of our students, families, and staff as we set out to do something that a mere two months ago we never could have imagined. We have quickly converted our bedrooms, dining rooms, and home offices into makeshift classrooms. Students are busy working away on meaningful learning provided by teachers. Of course, this is no replacement for the experience of being at school together; but given the circumstances we are all making it work! Starting on Monday, all of our students will have two live, whole-class lessons each week. This will be a time for teachers to work with the class all together in real-time. Please refer to my message sent earlier today for more information. You can also always access the LM LEARNS website for up to date information and resources.

It breaks my heart that this is how the school year will end for our children and staff; but I take solace in knowing how much energy all of the adults are putting into making this time meaningful and productive for the children in our community.

More than ever I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Pine Road family.

Please do not hesitate to be in touch with me.


Brian J. Swank, Ed.D.

Will Traditional spring events still take place?

YES! We are working hard behind the scenes to come up with some unique ways to still celebrate our students. While things will look and feel a little different this year, rest assured that maintaining as many traditions as possible, in spite of the current conditions, is important to our Pine Road staff. Please be patient as we get the details worked out. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Swank with questions.
