The Latest on the Closure from Our Executive Director

Updated April 30, 2020

Dear Second Start Families and Caregivers, 

The Santa Clara County Office of Education , Monterey County Office of Education and the Nevada Department of Education have made regional decisions to continue distance learning through the remainder of the 19-20 school year (including extended school year) to slow the spread of COVID-19. To stay in alignment with our districts, our staff and students will not be returning to Pine Hill Schools until next school year.  

During this difficult time, Second Start is doing our best to mitigate these extenuating circumstances and ensure our students receive reasonable access to instruction materials and home activities.  Pine Hill School and Pine Hill South will have assignments from each homeroom teacher through the EdisonNewton Learning Center, and Pine Hill South program pages and Pine Hill school will also have assignments from behavior staff, speech therapy, along with contact information for counseling support that families can access.  You can visit our Covid-19 closure resource page for links to other learning and enrichment resources as well as additional services including free lunch options and free or reduced rate internet service that are available within our communities.  

We will be continually monitoring our county education offices for further guidance and provide updates to our families on our website.  For questions about Pine Hill School and Pine Hill South contact gregz@secondstart.org and for Newton Northern Nevada contact rebeccaj@secondstart.org.  

Be safe and well,

Tara Bevington

Executive Director
