Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow News: October 26, 2020

Dear Parents,

It's Red Ribbon Week, and this is a good reminder for all of us to talk to our kids about the dangers of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Check out the Red Ribbon website and read this article, "Teen Vaping in the Age of Coronavirus" if you want to learn more and find resources to help you navigate this conversation. We wore Red last Friday to help launch Red Ribbon Week, and will be discussing the dangers of drugs this week during Homestead classes. Thank you for everything you do at home around these topics, and please reach out to us if you need any support.
