    Hello Pine Hollow Middle School community. This is your principal, Andrew Livengood, with the message for the week of April 7.

    • Social Media Update: We received some reports of students receiving strange/disturbing text messages last week from unknown numbers. If your student receives any disturbing or unsettling messages, please take a screen shot and forward that to your child’s grade level administrator so we can investigate. Your child should then block that number from his/her device. Keep in mind there are apps which allow senders to use a “fake” number to send messages which makes it challenging to identify the source. This is just one more reason to pay careful attention to your child’s online and social media activities.
