Annual Open House, 1st Day of School, and Tailgate Party Information

Pine River Area Schools announces its Annual Open House on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. in the K-3 building and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the 4-12 building.  Students and parents are invited to come in to get schedules, locker assignments, complete required paperwork, and meet teachers and staff.  While the paving, painting, and striping of the parking lot at the K-3 (lower elementary) may not be finished (and who knows, it might), the middle school-high school parking will be ready—lots of rain this year, county road construction in front of the middle school-high school, and other things slowed construction some.

However, we are excited to start showing off the work the community supported through the bond approval!  Our district’s school children are so blessed to have these resources!  Thank you Pine River community!

The parking lots will be freshly laid and painted so we encourage folks to look at our website  and around the villages at businesses during the upcoming week or so where we will release more detailed information regarding parking, drop off/pick up points for fall, and other information.

School starts Tuesday, September 5!  Please come help us reach our goal of 100% student-parent attendance!  If you are new to the area or wish to examine Schools of Choice for your student, please visit the central office of Pine River Area Schools at 17445 Pine River Road just west of U.S. 131 in LeRoy or call 231-829-3141.

The Community-wide Cookout and Tailgate Party will take place on Friday, September 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.  There is a varsity home football game as the Bucks host Evart—we are hoping for a big crowd to come sit in our new grandstands which will be open that night for the first time!  Members of the Pine River Area Community should come to the cafeteria between 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. for their free hot dog and a FREE PASS to enter the night’s home game.

Superintendent Matt Lukshaitis stated, “We are just really excited to get the school year going again and meet and greet our students and parents—old and new—at the Open House on the 29th of August!  It’s going to be a little hectic as there will be some odds and ends still in progress as a result of construction, but we will be able to open school on time and get the year going!  We are so thankful for all the community support and for voting YES in support of the bond.  Once everyone sees all the remodeling I think it will be inspiring.  Thank you Pine River!”

Please come celebrate the opening of school, the start of fall sports, and the passing of our bond!  Thank you so much Pine River!  We support our Bucks!
