A Note About Homework
We have created this Homework Handbook so that families know what to anticipate in each grade when it comes to homework. We also want to share our thinking about the purposes of homework, and what families might do to extend activities beyond school.. There is a wealth of research now on the best uses of homework and what is developmentally appropriate for each age group.
Driver Safety Information
In order to avoid conditions that put students and adults at risk, we continue to improve our traffic routines for drop-off and pick-up. Please follow the updated traffic procedures for 2018 to provide a safe, efficient drop-off and pick-up for all students and adults. Also, please be patient as all families learn and abide by the new routine. If everyone follows these directions, it will be smoother, faster and safer for all. When people try to do things that save them a minute or two, it usually costs other drivers time and is not safe.
Please do not drop-off or pick-up your child in front of the school or anywhere else along the driveway, except the west side drop-off/pick-up zone.

My School Bucks
The Piner-Olivet Union School District’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service, MySchoolBucks, to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster, so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.
You can create an account by visiting www.myschoolbucks.com For your convenience, if you have an active NutriKids user account, you will be able to use the same credentials to log into MySchoolBucks.
