Highlighting Bright Spots of Distance Learning

  • Parent Update - Jan. 15, 2021

    Posted by Linda Borgerding on 1/15/2021 10:30:00 AM

    Dear Pinewood Families,

    This message is intended for In-person/Distance Learning All families, not for Distance Learning Opt In families.

    Changes for Grades 1-5

    Starting Monday, Jan. 18, we will welcome back grades 1-3 in-person in the building.  Grades 4 & 5 will continue with Distance Learning, unless your child is receiving Intensive Services.

    • Pinewood will change back to our building schedule we were using in November.  This includes Grades 4 & 5 – we will no longer continue with the Distance Learning Family Block Schedule.  We have to service all students in two different environments and this schedule meets the needs of students and staff.

    o   With the new schedule changes, Specials for Grades 4-5 will now start with a Live Google Meet.

    In-person for Grades 1-3

    It feels like we are starting a new school year – so here are a few reminders.

    • School Hours

    o   Student hours are 9:15 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.

    • What to return (other than your child!)

    o   Students must bring back their device and charger on Monday, Jan. 18.  In their backpack, please pack any school materials that were brought home, white board, schoolbooks, etc. Your classroom teacher will provide a detailed list.

    o   Students will be going outside for recess.  Please have them bring coat, hat, mittens/gloves, boots and snow pants.

    o   Bring a snack, as needed.

    • The “inside” of Pinewood will look a lot like November – just before the students began Distance Learning All

    o   Students and staff are required to wear masks unless outside.  Mask breaks may be provided depending on weather and the amount of time needed to dress for the outside.

    o   Student desks will still be 6 feet apart in the classroom.  Students will eat in the classrooms and recess will be by zones by classroom.  We will continue to maintain the smallest cohort as the classroom.   If all goes well, we hope to lessen restrictions by the end of February.

    o   Due to COVID-19 precautions, there will be no birthday treats or gifts allowed in the building this year.

    o   Due to COVID-19 precautions, parents will not be able to enter the building.  Parents may still access the office but only two families are allowed at a time.

    • Attendance Procedures

    o   Please call the school no later than 9:00 a.m. if your child will not be in school that day.  The Pinewood attendance number is 763-272-2410 and is available to leave a message 24 hours a day.

    • Safety Zone

    o   Will start unloading at 8:55 a.m.

    o   Vehicles will be held in the parent loop until the above time.  Vehicles can pull up to door 5 to start unloading.  Once a vehicle has moved to an open spot with access to the sidewalk between door 5 and the parent loop, students may exit the vehicle on the passenger side and enter the building through door 4.

    • Bus Pick Up and Drop Off

    o   Check parent portal for bus pick up and drop off times.  You will want to know how to access this site because second quarter progress reports will be sent out electronically on Feb. 8.  Call the office for assistance, if needed. 763-272-2400

    o   Though we believe routes should be on time, buses may run a few minutes behind on Monday.

    o   Buses unload at 9:00 a.m.  – Two buses at a time.

    • Breakfast/Lunch

    o   Breakfast and lunch are free to all students at this time.

    o   Students can bring lunch from home.  Students will be eating in the classroom.

    o   Menu – there is only one entrée choice for the month of January.

    o   Due to COVID-19 precautions, families will not be able to have lunch with their students this year.

    • Bus Dismissal

    o   Our goal is to have the buses leave Pinewood at 3:15 p.m.  Though we believe routes should be on time, buses may run a few minutes behind on Monday.

    • Safety Zone Dismissal

    o   Vehicles will be held in the parent loop until all safety zone students are in their assigned areas.  Vehicles start picking up students @3:07 p.m.  Students will be 6 feet apart, waiting on the sidewalk.

    o   Vehicles will drive up to their student and the student will enter the vehicle only from the passenger side.  It is too dangerous to have students access the driver’s side of the car.  Please change seating in your vehicle to accommodate this entry.  Once you have picked up your student, you can use the left lane to exit.

    We are very excited to have Grades 1-3 back in the building!   To help us continue this model, I want to remind families of the importance of good health habits. It remains very important to do basic things such as wash hands, practice social distancing, and mask up. It’s also vital that students and staff stay home when sick, and please call the building nurse in the case of a positive COVID-19 test, 763-272-2420.

    Have a wonderful weekend,

    ​​​​​​​Linda Borgerding | Principal

    Pinewood is prepared and ready for Distance Learning.  The live meets and block schedule will make for a better learning environment than last spring.  The first day may have a few bumps, but working together, we can solve the problems and get everyone on board and ready to learn.

  • In-Person/Hybrid Parent Update Nov. 18, 2020

    Posted by Linda Borgerding on 11/18/2020 5:00:00 PM

    Dear Pinewood In-Person/Hybrid Families,

    As I think about 2020, many words come to mind to describe this year.  For this communication, we will be focusing on the word “change”.  Other than moving from the Hybrid Learning Model to Distance Learning All Model, there are two additional changes:

    1. Student hours will be similar to our in school time now: 9:15 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
    2. Conferences are moving from Nov. 23 & 24 to Dec. 7 & 8

    Student Hours

    Student hours will be similar to our in school time now: 9:15 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. This is a change from the previous communication on Nov. 13 that stated we would start an hour earlier.  A few of our support programs could not make the change to the earlier time so we need to go back to the 9:15 a.m. start time.  See attached schedule for additional information.

    Conferences Moved to Dec. 7 & 8

    To provide additional time to prepare for the Distance Learning All Model, Fall Conferences will be moved from Nov. 23 & 24 to Dec. 7 & 8.

    • Conferences scheduled for Nov. 23 will be moved to Dec. 7
    • Conferences scheduled for Nov. 24 will be moved to Dec. 8
    • Date changes will be made in myconferencetime.com/pinewood by 5:00 p.m. tonight. The time you previous signed up for will be the same.
    • If a link for a virtual conference has already been emailed to you by the classroom teacher, the link will be updated next week and resent to you. If a virtual link has not been sent out at this time, the link will be sent next week.
    • If the date or time do not work for you, please make the change in myconferencetime.com/pinewood
    • If you are unable to meet on these dates or times, please contact your child’s teacher to set up another meeting.
    • During the December Conferences, teacher and parent will be able to discuss your child’s progress during In-person/Hybrid model and during the Distance Learning All model.
    • Your child’s progress report will be sent home this week.
    • Instruction will occur from 9:15-11:30 a.m. on Dec. 7 & 8

    Schedule and Calendar

    See attachment for the Distance Learning All Family Block Schedule and a calendar for the rest of November & December.  (The schedule and calendar will be printed at Pinewood and sent home on Friday.)  We believe the block schedule will be easy to implement at home, daycare or at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.  Devices and chargers, along with materials needed for the week of Dec. 1 will be sent home Friday.  A quiet place for your child to have their own space for distance learning is very helpful – along with a set of headphones.  Lunch and recess are at the same time for all students and specials may be completed at any time during the day that works best for the family.

    Virtual Chat with Pinewood Principals

    Pinewood Principals will be hosting a Virtual Chat on Nov. 24 at 6:30 p.m. to answer any questions about the upcoming changes.  Paste into browser: meet.google.com/dey-aaok-mzd


    Teachers and students have been busy this week learning how to use their device for Distance Learning All.  There are major changes being implemented from last spring.  I believe we are on the right track to provide the best instruction during Distance Learning All in December. Thank you for your continued support.

  • English & Spanish Parent Update - Oct. 23, 2020

    Posted by Linda Borgerding on 10/23/2020 4:30:00 PM

    Hello Pinewood In-Person and Distance Learning Opt In Families,

    We have several updates in our weekly communication.  Please let us know if you have any questions that we can help to answer.

    First, we have had several calls to the office about a change in learning programs from in-person to hybrid.  While the county numbers of COVID have increased, we have had relatively few positive cases in our schools.  We are continuing to work closely with the department of public health to analyze the most recent data.  If a decision is made to switch to a different learning platform, we will let families know as soon as possible.  As of Friday afternoon, no decision has been made to change the learning platform at the elementary level.  You can refer to Mr. Olson’s message to families yesterday for more information.

    This year, our gifted and talented programming will look different that it has in the past.   Mrs. Rosa, Little Mountain’s gifted and talented teacher, was gracious enough to step into a 4th grade classroom to fill a last minute vacancy and Mrs. Severson, Pinewood’s gifted and talented teacher is stepping into the classroom to fill a need with the Distance Learning Opt In Program.  However, we are determined to offer these enriched opportunities to our students.  Please follow this Gifted and talented programming.pdf  to learn more about our plan to safely deliver instruction to our G/T students.

    Because of the increase in county cases, the Monticello elementary schools have decided that we would best serve our families by offering virtual-only conferences this fall.  Your conference will still be held during the time you signed up for early this month.  In the coming weeks, you can expect instructions from your classroom teacher regarding our virtual conferences.  If you do not have access to Google Meet, we can arrange for a phone call during your scheduled conference time.  Please go to https://www.myconferencetime.com/pinewood to schedule your conference if you have not already.

    Finally, the end of the quarter is coming the first week of November.  At the start of the school year, we asked families who were planning to make changes to their school program to wait until the quarter break.  If you are planning to make change (distance to in-person or in-person to distance) at the quarter break, please call Mrs. Borgerding as soon as possible.  We want to make sure we have everything ready for students who are making a change.

    Thank you for your continued support.  We are extremely grateful to work with a group of families who understand the importance of education and the unique situation we are all faced with at this time.  You have all taken on the mentality that we are all in this together, and we are thankful that you are sharing your kids with us each day!

    Linda Borgerding | Principal


    Spanish Version

    ¡Hola, familias de Pinewood!

    Tenemos varias actualizaciones importantes en nuestra comunicación semanal. Háganos saber si tiene alguna pregunta que podamos ayudar a responder. 

    Primero, hemos recibido varias llamadas a la oficina sobre un cambio en los programas de aprendizaje de presencial a híbrido. Si bien los números del condado de Covid han aumentado, hemos tenido relativamente pocos casos positivos en nuestras escuelas. Seguimos trabajando en estrecha colaboración con el departamento de salud pública para analizar los datos más recientes. Si se toma la decisión de cambiar a una plataforma de aprendizaje diferente, se lo informaremos a las familias lo antes posible. Hasta el viernes por la tarde, no se ha tomado ninguna decisión para cambiar el modo de aprendizaje en el nivel de primaria. 

    Este año, nuestra programación para superdotados y talentosos se verá diferente de lo que ha sido en el pasado. La Sra. Rosa, la talentosa y talentosa maestra de Little Mountain, tuvo la gentileza de entrar en un salón de clases de 4º grado para llenar una vacante de último minute y la Sra Severson, la dotada y talentosa maestra de Pinewood está entrando en el salón de clases para satisfacer una necesidad con el Programa Opt In de Educación a Distancia.  Sin embargo, estamos decididos a ofrecer estas oportunidades enriquecidas a nuestros estudiantes. Siga este enlace  para obtener más información sobre nuestro plan para brindar instrucción de manera segura a nuestros estudiantes del grupo G/T. 

    Debido al aumento de casos en el condado, las escuelas primarias de Monticello han decidido que podemos servir mejor a nuestras familias ofreciendo conferencias solo virtuales este otoño. Sus conferencias aún se llevarán a cabo durante el tiempo en que se inscribió durante los días de bienvenida. En las próximas semanas, puede esperar instrucciones de su maestro de aula sobre nuestras conferencias virtuales. Si no tiene acceso a Google Meet, podemos organizar una llamada telefónica durante el horario de conferencia programado. Vaya a https://www.myconferencetime.com/pinewood para programar su conferencia si aún no lo ha hecho. 

    Finalmente, el final del primer trimestre llega la primera semana de Noviembre. Al comienzo del año escolar, les pedimos a las familias que estaban planeando hacer cambios en su programa escolar que esperarán hasta el receso del trimestre. Si planea hacer un cambio (de distancia a  en persona o en persona a la distancia) en el descanso del trimestre, llame al Sra. Borgerding lo antes posible. Queremos asegurarnos de tener todo listo para los estudiantes que están haciendo un cambio. 

    Gracias por su continuo apoyo. Estamos muy agradecidos de trabajar con un grupo de familias que comprenden la importancia de la educación y la situación única que todos enfrentamos. ¡Todos han asumido la mentalidad de que todos estamos juntos en esto, y estamos agradecidos de que compartan a sus hijos con nosotros todos los días!

    Dear Distance Learning Families,

    Campus Payments

    Each school year, we request $10 per student on the Class Supply list for a Class Fund.  We would like to continue this for Distance Learning too.  At this time, parents can make payments in real-time by using a credit/debit card, checking or savings accounts in Parent Portal.  Please see attachment for directions.  If you have already made payment, this will be displayed in Parent Portal.  We are hoping to have this paid by the end of October.  Campus Payment for Parents

    Safety Drills

    Our district strives for several different goals. Our single most important priority is student safety and building security. Another valued goal is strong and clear communication. With those things in mind, I want to inform you that we had our first preplanned lockdown drill at Pinewood. 

    In order to make this safety training as effective as possible, we shared with students and staff that a lockdown drill would take place at 9:55 a.m. The drill was over by 9:06 a.m. Today’s drill focused on letting students and staff hear the lockdown message over the public address system and to have classroom teachers review lockdown procedures. Students were with s teacher during the drill.  Educators and administrators will also be available to follow up with students if they have any questions following the drill.

     Minnesota state statute requires schools to have 5 fire drills, 5 lockdown drills and 1 severe weather drill.  So far, we have completed four fire drills and today’s lockdown drill.

    We assure you that we will continue to spend time, money, and energy investing in the best safety and security practices in order to create the best, most secure possible learning environment for “Every Kid, Every Day.”

     Enjoy the warm weather this weekend,

     Linda Borgerding | Principal

    Hello Pinewood Families,

    At the start of the month, Pinewood shares the “Pinewood Press” which includes important dates and information for families.  Feel free to print and post on the refrigerator at your house(s)!


    Oct. 14 is no longer a District Early Dismissal but an At Home Learning Day.  (This is for in-person and distance learning students). Students will not be attending school but completing an At Home Learning Day Board.  The At Home Learning Board will be sent home Oct. 12 and must be returned by Oct. 21 for your child to be counted as present for attendance on Oct. 14.

    It is difficult to believe one month of school has already passed.  The students are getting into the routine of wearing masks, mask breaks, eating in their classroom, zones at recess and other safety precautions we have implemented at Pinewood. Thank you for your support, understanding and caring during the start of the school year.  I know we will have a great October too!

  • Distance Learning Parent Update Oct. 2, 2020

    Posted by Linda Borgerding on 10/2/2020 3:45:00 PM

    Dear Distance Learning Families,

    We are excited to announce that we are hosting our first Distance Learning Family Night. We hope you will be able to join us next Wednesday, October 7th from 5:30-8pm at the Monticello High School. We will start with a pizza dinner and then move into the auditorium. The purpose of our Distance Learning Family night is to build connections with other families and also meet the team of people supporting distance learning behind the scenes. We are dedicated to making sure our distance learners and their families are supported and have their questions answered. More information and the RSVP can be found on this attached flier. Distance Learning Family Night.pdf 

     We also wanted to pass along a few other reminders about the distance learning program that we feel are important to make a successful learning experience:

    • It’s important that distance learners have an adult who is able to assist when needed. Our students often need reminders or assistance with technology to be successful. 

    • Please make sure the students are not receiving help when they are given tests or assessments from their teachers. We understand it may be difficult not to give hints or clues when your child doesn’t know the answer, however, test results help guide future instruction by giving the teacher a full view of student’s learning during a certain period of time. 

    • At some point during the school year, our distance learning teachers may need to be absent. If a teacher is absent for a short period of time (1-2 days), they will post learning activities to Seesaw but will not have live instruction. If a teacher is going to be absent for a longer period of time, we will have a substitute teacher fill in. We are currently in the process of training our substitute teachers for distance learning applications.

    • Please ensure your child’s workspace is set up for success.  All materials should be readily accessible on a daily basis. Chromebooks must be charged at night. Help your child to choose a work space where distractions can be avoided.

    • Reminder that materials/envelopes from school must be picked up by the end of the school day on Friday.  One suggestion is to keep the envelope sealed until Monday morning.  Another suggestion is to keep materials/envelopes in a student's backpack for safe keeping.

    Thank you for your support and dedication to our kids!

    Linda Borgerding | Principal

    Estimadas familias de educación a distancia,

    Nos complace anunciar que estamos organizando nuestra primera Noche familiar de aprendizaje a distancia. Esperamos que pueda unirse a nosotros el próximo Miércoles 7 de octubre, de 5: 30-8pm en la escuela de Monticello High School. Comenzaremos con una cena de pizza y luego pasaremos al auditorio. El propósito de nuestra noche familiar de aprendizaje a distancia es establecer conexiones con otras familias y también conocer al equipo de personas que apoyan el aprendizaje a distancia entre bastidores. Estamos dedicados a asegurarnos de que nuestros estudiantes a distancia y sus familias reciban apoyo y se respondan sus preguntas. Puede encontrar más información y el link para hacer su reservación. También un folleto adjunto. Spanish Copy of Distance Learning Family Night.pdf 

     También queríamos transmitir algunos otros recordatorios sobre el programa de aprendizaje a distancia que creemos que son importantes para que la experiencia de aprendizaje sea exitosa:

    • Es importante que los estudiantes a distancia tengan a un adulto que pueda ayudar cuando sea necesario. Nuestros estudiantes a menudo necesitan recordatorios o ayuda con la tecnología para tener éxito. 

    • Por favor, asegúrese de que los estudiantes no estén recibiendo ayuda cuando sus maestros les hagan exámenes o evaluaciones. Entendemos que puede ser difícil no dar pistas cuando su hijo no sabe la respuesta, sin embargo, los resultados de las pruebas ayudan a guiar la instrucción futura al brindarle al maestro una visión completa del aprendizaje del estudiante durante un cierto período de tiempo. 

    • En algún momento durante el año escolar, nuestros maestros de educación a distancia pueden necesitar estar ausentes. Si un maestro está ausente por un período corto de tiempo (1-2 días), publicará las actividades de aprendizaje en Seesaw pero no tendrá instrucción en vivo. Si un maestro va a estar ausente por un período de tiempo más largo, tendremos un maestro sustituto que lo completará. Actualmente estamos en el proceso de capacitar a nuestros maestros sustitutos para aplicaciones de aprendizaje a distancia.

    • Asegúrese de que el espacio de trabajo de su hijo esté configurado para el éxito. Todos los materiales deben ser fácilmente accesibles a diario. Los Chromebook deben estar cargados. Ayude a su hijo a elegir un espacio de trabajo donde se puedan evitar las distracciones.

    • Recuerde que los materiales/sobres de la escuela deben recogerse antes del final del día escolar el Viernes. Una sugerencia es mantener el sobre cerrado hasta el lunes por la mañana. Otra sugerencia es mantener los materiales / sobres en la mochila del estudiante para mantenerlos a salvo.

    ¡Gracias por su apoyo y dedicación a nuestros niños!

    Estimadas familias que optan por el aprendizaje en persona y a distancia de Pinewood:

    Recordatorio: Día de la fotografía: viernes 25 de septiembre

    Se adjunta el folleto de imágenes con información sobre cómo ver y pedir imágenes. 

    Este es un proceso muy diferente al que hemos usado en el pasado. Aparte de la toma de fotografías, la escuela no participa en el pedido o la entrega de fotografías. Recordatorio: no se vista de verde para el día de la foto.
