Dear Pine Hollow Parents,
Thank you to the many families who have signed up for text alerts, joined the PTSA Facebook Group, followed us on Twitter, and bookmark our school website! One of our goals this year is to increase communication, so I really appreciate you taking these steps to ensure that you are getting all the great news coming out of Pine Hollow!
If you ever have questions, comments, or concerns, please don't hesitate to send us an email, give us a call, or stop by our main office to set up an appointment. You can also arrange to observe classes or shadow your student for a day! Our teachers and staff are more than happy to meet with you for any reason, and we truly believe that we are a better school when we are working together to support our kids.
Finally, please consider joining us at our next Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) meeting on November 28 or our next Site Council meeting on December 4th. We value parent participation and we hope to to see you on campus soon!

Air Quality Alert
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued an air quality advisory for smoke through tomorrow, Friday, November 9, for all counties included in their district (including Contra Costa County) due to the smoke from a wildfire in Butte County.
They are forecasting "moderate" air quality for our area through November 12, partially as a result of winds blowing smoke from this fire into the Bay Area and East Bay regions. While this does not require schools and businesses to change operations, we are asking all of our teachers, coaches, and other staff to be vigilant about monitoring student activity and being responsive to students, staff, and visitors who may be adversely affected by smoke and other issues. We are encouraging students to self-monitor as well, and are having students sit out or slow down during PE. We are also asking staff to ensure good indoor air quality by keeping windows and doors closed with air conditioning and climate control technologies used as needed to keep classrooms comfortable and students learning.
Visit http://www.baaqmd.gov/about-air-quality/current-air-quality to read about smoke advisories, air quality forecasts, and view information collected from the Air Quality Management District's air monitoring network. The agency is also posting updates on its Twitter page at https://twitter.com/airdistrict.
View www.sparetheair.org for a description of the reporting zones, an explanation of the Air Quality Index (AQI), current readings, and additional air quality information. We will continue to monitor conditions throughout the weekend.
