News and Announcements

Textbook and Instructional Materials Pick-up

This is a reminder that we have our textbook and materials hand out happening over the next three days. Here is a reminder of the schedule:

6th grade: Wednesday 8/19 from 9:00-12:00

7th grade: Thursday 8/20 from 9:00-12:00

8th grade: Friday 8/21 from 9:00-12:00

If you have more than one student enrolled here and they are in different grade levels, we will accommodate you on one day. We will also be handing out information on the Aeries Parent Portal as well as textbooks and instructional materials.

Please pay attention to your teachers’ announcements and schedules, as many of them will not be holding live class on the day of their grade level pick up so that they can be out to help and meet their students and families. We encourage students to come with their parents when possible but it is not required. Please pull through the front parking lot just as you did with last week’s Chromebook handout, and stay in your cars. Our staff members will be wearing masks and will come to your car to help you. It will make the line go faster if you know who your student’s math and English teachers are when you arrive. We look forward to seeing you! Please call the office at (760) 868-3126 if you have any questions.

Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year!

Calling all Wolverines! We have important information to share regarding the beginning of the 2020-21 school year and this first week of Remote Learning. So please click on "Read Full Story". Remote Learning will be a challenge for all of the Snowline Community and we are here for you, so stay #Wolverinestrong!

Attention Wolverine Families!

With one month of our crisis learning down and one more to go, we wanted to check in with all of our families about your learning opportunities. We appreciate all of you that have stayed engaged with our Pinon Mesa community and are continuing your learning during this time.

We know that most of you are working with your teachers online. This continues to be the best way to keep learning if you are able to connect with your teachers through google classroom and virtual class meetings. If you are struggling with your internet connection, don’t forget that the district has set up “learning lots” with free snowline Wi-Fi at Serrano, Quail Valley and Wrightwood Elementary school parking lots.

For those of you who are working on the paper learning packets either by choice or necessity, we want to let you know that those resources are still available to you. In addition to the first packet, which contained a significant amount of work and probably enough to get most of you through the end of the school year, we have created a supplemental packet for the month of May for anyone who may be needing more learning material. An electronic copy of this work will be posted online as of Monday, May 4. Paper copies of this packet will be handed out on an as-needed basis only, so if you need more paper and pencil work, please reach out to either your advisory teacher or to one of the administrators or counselors to let us know and we will make arrangements to hand this packet out to you.

There will be more information coming regarding the end of the year, including a time to hand out yearbooks and PE clothes and hand in textbooks, library books and Chromebooks in a safe, drive-through manner. This is tentatively scheduled for the week of May 26 after Memorial Day, so keep your eye out for more information to come. And 8th graders, we sent you an email this week with our hopes and plans to celebrate you at the end of the year, so keep watching for more information on that as well.

We know that this has been an extremely challenging time for all of our families. Our staff is here to support you, so don’t hesitate to reach out by email if you need assistance. All of our email addresses are on the school website under the parent tab. Keep looking for those staff videos that we hope are making you smile, and for more ASB spirit activities coming soon. We miss all of your faces and hope you are all taking care of yourselves during this time. Stay Wolverine Strong!

Enjoy Summer Break!

To ALL of our Wolverine Families... Enjoy your summer break! Take time to listen, to share, to be grateful and to remember that we miss you! We will keep you informed as decisions are made regarding next school year, but for now, know that we are looking forward to seeing all of your faces as soon as possible!

Latest news on the 2020-21 School Year

Dear Pinon Mesa Families,

While we are disappointed that recent developments and guidelines prevent us from opening school in person, we are excited to start another great year with our Wolverines! Given that so much has changed just in the last week, we are still working hard on our Remote School plan. We understand this is a stressful time and the uncertainty regarding details can be frustrating. We will continue to keep you updated as we have more information, but you can be assured that our plan will be the very best for our students under the circumstances and will include all of the requirements that Dr. Holman discussed in his communications yesterday (July 20th), including access to chromebooks, live daily instruction, and a schedule and structure. We will continue to work with the district leadership, teachers, and staff on all issues, including special education students and English learners (Click "Read Full Story" below for the most recent communication from the district regarding Special Education). We will keep you informed, so look for more to come moving forward. We thank you for your patience and support during these challenging circumstances. Stay Wolverine Strong!
