Welcome back to our students, families and faculty! The first day of school is on Monday, August 24th. We would like to invite you to our open house on Monday, September 21 from 6:00 - 7:30pm. Our faculty will be available to answer your questions and we will have community agencies that will be on hand to talk about their resources and services. Please come join us! Up, up and away, whooooossssh!
Regular student attendance is important for student learning and progress throughout the school year. The state's financial support for schools is also directly linked to student attendance. Absenteeism hurts our students and hurts our schools. When students are absent they miss out on learning opportunities, can fall behind academically and our schools lose funding. To ensure our attendance records are counted for maximum state funding this school year, please ensure your child attends school each day October 12 -16, 2015. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Timothy Sternberg, Assistant Principal at 754-321-7250.
Thank you for supporting your child’s education.

About Pine Ridge Education Center
A student who is no longer successful in the home school environment has individual needs that require intensive and specific interventions. Traditional school programs and services cannot remedy the crisis impacting the child, his family, or school community. Crisis management and long-term success can be achieved through a concentrated multifaceted intervention program that focuses on the child first. Comprehensive program development, individualized for each child, includes academic, therapeutic, behavioral, social, and vocational components. Careful treatment plan development identifies the specific focus, structure, and sequence of interventions that a new student requires. Concerted and diligent implementation of the treatment plan by a carefully assembled team of professional educators and support staff extends a lifeline of support to the child and his family and home school community. Attention to the specific needs of a child at the point-of-need assures the personal growth necessary to become a successful student once again in the most appropriate and unrestricted environment possible
Pine Ridge has been selected as a Universal School. This is the second year we have been chosen to be part of the program.
As a Universal School every child is entitled to eat breakfast free of charge. A good breakfast will help our students have a good start at their academics.
Student Code of Conduct Handbook
The Student Code of Conduct Handbook will be distributed to parents and students electronically.
Access to the handbook for the 2014-15 school year is available on our school's website. The Acknowledgement, Media Release and FERPA Opt Out forms available on pages 11-19 will need to be printed, signed and returned to the school by Friday, August 22.
It is important to review the policy as it incorporates changes from previous versions. A list of the substantive changes can be found on page 8 in the handbook.
We're looking forward to a great 2014-2015 school year.
