On September 3, we will start the 2020-21 school year with our Kindergarteners starting on September 9. We will start the year with remote learning to best protect the health and safety of our students, staff, and families.
Typically, Pine Tree has an Ice Cream Social at the beginning of every school year to introduce students and teachers. At this point in time, all registered students should have received a postcard in the mail stating their 2020 – 2021 teacher assignment. If your child is currently registered but did not receive a postcard, please email our data processor, Evy Heiszler at Evy.Heiszler@kent.k12.wa.us.
On Tuesday, September 1st from 5:30-6:30 p.m., teachers will be holding a virtual meet and greet online. Homeroom teachers will be emailing you directions and a link to join. For questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher directly.
Please keep in mind that the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve with each passing day. For the latest updates and information, please continue to visit www.kent.k12.wa.us/backtoschool.
Communication between home and school is more critical now than ever before, especially as we continue to learn more about COVID-19 guidance and changes. I will provide information to families and staff via text, email, recorded messages, our school website, School Newsletters and through our official school social Facebook Page. To help with this process, please ensure your information is updated in Skyward. If you need help updating this information, you can email our Data Processor at Evy.Heiszler@kent.k12.wa.us or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will assist you.
Our ability to reopen schools safely is directly related to what is happening in our community. Until then, thank you for social distancing, minimizing interactions with others outside your home, washing your hands frequently, and wearing a face covering.
We are currently working on a materials and laptop distribution process so that all students are set-up for success for their first day of remote learning. As soon as this plan has been finalized, we will share it with you and students. We thank you for your patience in this matter.
This school year will be a new journey for all of us. Please know that our team remains committed to the health and safety and academic success of all students and staff as we move forward together. I look forward to another great year with our students!
