Monday, August 31, 2015 – School Begins at 8:20 AM

The school office will open on August 17.

The first day of school for students is Monday, August 31. Classes begin at 8:20 am.

Find out early who your child's teacher will be!

The packets of information for parents to read, fill out, sign, and return that have traditionally been sent home on the first day of school will be available to parents in the school office starting on Friday, August 21.

Step 1: Stop by the school office and complete the packet.

Step 2: Turn in your completed packet to the school office.

Step 3: Learn who your child's teacher is.

It's that simple!

Completing the New School Year Packets early will allow students to utilize our libraries and computer labs much earlier than in years past... and you get to find out which outstanding teacher you will have for your child this year.

Class lists will be posted for public viewing in the office window on Friday, August 28 at 4:00 pm. This will be followed by our annual Kindergarten Meet The Teacher Event from 4-5 pm. During this time kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students can go to their newly assigned rooms and meet their teachers. We have found that this helps to greatly reduce anxiety on the first day of school.


Hello, Pine Hill Families!

It is an honor to begin another school year with you. Teachers are eager to meet their students and begin a year of rich academics and social skill development.  Support staff are ready to assist teachers and be at their post to ensure safety and to reinforce appropriate behavior in the lunchroom, playground, and after-school.   The maintenance crew worked diligently all summer long painting, cleaning, and rearranging. Administration is prepared to support their staff, students, and families to enable us all to have a memorable, positive year.  Welcome back to the Pine Hill Family.  We know you’ll like it here!

~ Principal Beall

Success for All

Our school has adopted a new program called Success for All. This is a reading program for grades 1-3 and a comprehensive program for Kindergarten and TK.  We can’t be more EXCITED to be able to offer this program to our students.  It is proven to be the best of the best in teaching reading to students. It involves a whole-school reform, and incorporates attendance, behavior, academics, and family support.

Parking Lot

Our parking lot can be very busy.  We all need to follow the same procedures for it to be safe. 

  1. If you are dropping your child off, please pull as far forward as you can to do so. 
  2. Do not park in loading/unloading zone.  If you would like to walk your child in, you will need to find a parking spot. 
  3. Keep in mind the bus needs plenty of room to pull in, and it needs to be able to park promptly.  The driver has no time to wait for a car to stay in loading zone.
  4. Please keep children’s safety in mind at all times.
  5. Don not let your child walk across the drive way without an adult supervising.
  6. Do not park in handicapped spot without a placard.
  7. Keep the left lane open for cars to drive-through.
  8. Be patient.  Allow for plenty of time to get to your next destination.
Thank you!


It’s simple.  If your child is not present, learning will not take place.  Please make every effort to be sure your child is at school.  Make appointments for after school or after lunch, if at all possible.  Being on time is equally important.  Please help us to ensure your child has a successful year.  Get your child to school, on-time! 

Minimum Day

Every Wednesday, school is released at 1:30.  Please have arrangements for your child to either ride the bus, attend the after-school program, or be picked up promptly at 1:30.  We are unable to keep students waiting for a ride in the office. Thank you.
