How will I find out my child’s school is closed?

Please rely only on Pine forest’s communication methods for information on a school closing. Pine Forest will use all modes of communication to alert families to the closures including mail chimp, emails, local news stations, and the Pine Forest school website. 


If schools are closed, could the school year be extended?

Yes. According to state laws and current policies, any day that a school is closed would have to be made up. Makeup days may be added to the end of the school year.


If schools are closed, will athletic practices or events be cancelled?

All athletic practices (basketball) or games will be cancelled.


If school is closed, will school trips and school-sponsored activities/events take place as scheduled?

School trips and school-sponsored activities/events scheduled on days schools are closed will be reviewed individually to determine if staff and chaperons are available to ensure the experience is meaningful and safe for students. Parents and students involved in the school trip and school-sponsored activities/events will be notified if the trip will occur as scheduled, postponed or be cancelled.


If schools are open with limited staff and I send my child, what can I expect will happen that day?

The top priority will be the safety of students. Administration will be on campus to make every attempt to contact parents and have them return to school to pick up their child.


If schools are closed for more than one day, how often will I receive communication?

You can expect daily communication regarding school closure.
