Pine Ridge Prep Update
August 15, 2022
Welcome from Mrs. Tanner & Mrs. Banzhaf
Dear Pine Ridge Prep Families,
One of my favorite weeks of the year has arrived - this is the week we get to welcome back our Pine Ridge Prep scholars! As a reminder, the first day of school is August 18th. We open the doors at 8:30 and dismiss at 3:30. Every Friday, beginning this Friday, August 19th, is Late Start. This is a time our teachers use to collaborate weekly. School will start an hour later so our doors will open at 9:30. This does not change dismissal times in any way.
This is the second of our weekly parent newsletters for this year. I try to have these sent out each Monday (sorry for the delay this week!). I 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. I send this out via email and text, and post it on our website and Facebook page. If you missed the first newsletter this year, or if you ever just want to go back and reference something, you can find each week's on Facebook and our school website.

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
