Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow News: February 22, 2021

Dear Parents,

On Saturday morning, most families in Mt. Diablo Unified School District should have received an email requesting online registration information to plan for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.


The registration form provides you the choice of one of two options for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. It is imperative that we receive 100% of these registrations back by March 1st.


This required online registration form must be completed for each student enrolled in any school within the Mt. Diablo Unified District.


The information will be used for the purpose of assigning students to an afternoon support teacher, either in-person or online. While families may have the option to switch to a different model at a later date, this information is being collected with the intent to use it for planning and afternoon session assignments.


For each student enrolled, families can choose one of two options for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year:


  • Option #1: Student continues with distance learning in the morning and then comes to the school site for “in-person” support in the afternoon two days per week.
  • Option #2: Student continues with 100% distance learning and will not receive on-campus support.


In response to community input, in both options, students will keep their currently assigned teachers in the morning time slots. It is possible that students may see a different teacher in the afternoon for support.


If you did not receive a unique and individualized “family-specific” registration survey on Saturday, you may click (or type) this link https://rebrand.ly/mdusdReturnToSchool to access the “general” registration survey.


If you need assistance with accessing the general registration survey, please call our office at 925-672-5444, and our staff will collect the information and input it into the survey for you.


Please note that finalized schedules will be released once there is agreement with our labor partners. Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this unprecedented time.
