Pinecrest Elementary moves to remote learning Dec. 7


Sylacauga, Ala. –  A high number of COVID exposures has created a staffing shortage at Pinecrest Elementary School. As a result, Pinecrest students will move to remote learning beginning Monday, Dec. 7 through Dec. 18.

Students should be prepared to return to the physical classroom on Jan. 5, 2021.

Superintendent Dr. Jon Segars stated, “Teachers are preparing packets to send home with students today, and they will be available online to provide assistance to their students and parents. Our administrators and teachers will remain in contact with families throughout the month to provide assignments and resources.”

Orders must be placed by 2 p.m. the day before, with pick up time from 11:30-12:00 at the front of the school. For more information regarding meal service, please call Kelley Wassermann, Director, at 256-404-9293.
