Districtwide Information for the Week of 1/25
One of the new questions on the survey asks about non-essential travel. If your child has traveled more than 120 miles from home within the last 14 days on non-essential travel, we ask that they stay home and quarantine prior to coming back onto campus. If marked "yes" the survey will direct you to contact the site principal to determine a return to campus date. Thank you so much for ensuring student safety as we return to on-campus learning.
If you have any questions please contact Mr. Grimmett at 707-273-2113 at Pine Hill, or Mrs. Becksted at 707-296-8776 at South Bay. Thank you.
Kindergarten Information Night is Tuesday
Pine Hill's Kindergarten Information Night will be held virtually on Tuesday, January 26 at 6:00 via Zoom.
Instead of having a large panel of people to present information that evening, our kindergarten team has created a presentation with information that you can check out ahead of time. Please view the video HERE before coming to our information night, and gather any questions you have so we can answer them.
Thanks for being a part of Pine Hill and the South Bay Union School District. Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at 6:00 on January 26 for Pine Hill’s Kindergarten Information Night! CLICK HERE to join the meeting.
Interdistrict Forms have been mailed!
Cope & Hope at South Bay
The Cope & Hope Photo Project seeks to document how students, families, and schools are experiencing the impacts of school closures due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. We want to narrow the focus to uplifting the resilience of teachers and students’ ability to cope in a time of distress and “come together” virtually to envision how they hope their schools will transform when in-person instruction resumes.
This is a project that South Bay Students will be working on during their art classes with Ms. Ngan starting at the beginning of 2021!
