Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow News: March 11, 2021

Dear Parents,

At last night's Board Meeting, the MDUSD Governing Board approved the date of March 22 as a "target date" for certain students to start to return to MDUSD campuses. (It has been proposed by Dr. Clark that Middle Schoolers will start on March 29th.) More information will come out tomorrow and next week about the specifics of this target start date, but I wanted to let you know about this action taken by the board.


At Pine Hollow we continue to prepare for our students to return. We are finalizing our site Reopening Plan, and collaborating as a staff about how in-person learning could look here. Classrooms, hallways, and and all campus spaces have been modified to increase the healthy and safety for students and staff back on campus. You can check out these changes and view pictures by viewing our Facility Reopening Plan slide deck here.


Finally, in an effort to ensure that you are getting all the information you need about reopening, I plan to hold a Chat With Campo next Thursday, March 18th, and meetings by grade level on Thursday, March 25th. Please see the details below. Thank you, enjoy the rest of your week, and Go Mustangs!


Ben Campopiano
