No School, Monday, February 20th - Presidents' Day

Today is my last day at Pine River Area Schools.  I have accepted a job at Franklin Elementary in Cadillac as their elementary principal.  I do want to sincerely thank you for all your support during my time at Pine River Area Schools.  It truly has been a joy to work with all of you.  I plan to stay in touch and look forward to continuing my relationships here.  Thank you again.  Pine River is a great place to be!

  I would also like to welcome Heidi Hayes back to Pine River Area Elementary as the new principal.  Mrs. Hayes comes to us with a variety of experience and we know that she will be a great addition to our staff.  She will be joining Pine River Area Schools next week.  Please stop in and say hello.
