Distance Learning for ALL Students

Based on recommendations from public health officials, the school board voted to move all students to distance learning from November 30-January 15. Teachers will share Zoom meeting times and links through Google Classroom and ClassDojo. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.

First Trimester Parent/Teacher Conferences- RESCHEDULED

This year we have chosen to move our first trimester conferences to the end of the second trimester in March due to all of the changes in the first trimester. If necessary, parents and teachers still have the opportunity to meet and discuss any questions or concerns about the students on Monday 12/7, or Monday 12/14.


If you would like to have a Zoom meet with your student's teacher, please reach out to the teacher or the office to let us know and we can set up a conference. As always, reach out with any questions you might have regarding your child's education.

Pine Hill Picture Day

Due to the change to distance learning for all students, Pine Hill's picture day has been rescheduled to later in January, assuming we are able to come back to in-person instruction on January 19. Information will be sent out when the picture day nears.
