Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow News: August 17, 2020

Dear Parents,

Wow... What a first day! We definitely had some hiccups (believe it or not, the internet was down on campus for the first two hours of our day), but overall I think it was a successful first day! Attendance was awesome, engagement was great, and technical issues were dealt with quickly. I'm hopeful that by the end of day tomorrow, all of the anxiety and stress you and your kids may be feeling will be eased.

That said, I realize there were a number of students who had issues logging in, accessing things, etc. So thank you for your patience as we answered calls, emails, and texts. Our systems are pretty solid, but I do apologize for any issues you may have encountered.

As we head into Day #2, please double check the bell schedule, review the One-Stop-Shop and log-in to HomeLink on your computer to review class schedules, attendance, and contact information. I know there will be more road bumps ahead, but our goal is to make this process as simple and seamless as possible so that our students can have a great year.

Thanks and let us know if you need anything. Best,

Ben Campopiano
Principal, Pine Hollow Middle School
