21st Century Program Begins September 6

Our YMCA 21st Century Program begins on September 6.  Please contact Melissa Willis if you have any questions.

Welcome New Staff!

Please welcome some new staff members to Piner:  Ms. McGlone, 2nd grade; Ms. Straley, preschool; and Mrs. Howard, Music teacher.  We are excited to add such high caliber education professionals to our staff! 

Information About Volunteering at Piner

If you would like to volunteer at Piner and do not have an approved background check on file, please note that there is a $10 processing fee for each. Background checks are good for three years.  If you are unable to afford this fee, the school will help as funds are available. Volunteers must also complete annual volunteer training-see the FRC newsletter for training dates.

Important Information about Treats

Due to the increased number and severity of student food allergies, we now require that all treats brought to school to share (ex: parties, birthdays) must be store bought and in their original packaging, with nutritional information attached.  Any treats that do not meet this standard will not be served. Thanks for helping to keep our students safe!

Sangha Parent Communication

Soon you will receive an email invitation to join our Piner Elementary exclusive phone app called Sangha. Sangha, which means ‘community’ in Sanskrit, will enable you to stay in the know about your child’s classroom and the school while on the go.  The school and teachers will be adding events to the Sangha calendar and sending newsletters, signup requests and messages through the Sangha mobile app at your fingertips.  No more sending a paper copy of the consent form, trying to remember when you signed up to volunteer, or searching for the teacher’s email from last month!

Your email invitation from Sangha will arrive in your inbox and include the title “Invite from Piner Elementary” asking you to register, create a password, and download the app (iOS or Android).  For security reasons, your invitation is directly tied to your email address.  Therefore, you cannot forward it to someone else.  If you’d like someone other than yourself to be included, please let us know.

Volunteer Orientations

Volunteer Orientations will take place on the following dates and times.  All volunteeers must attend these orientations to go on field trips or to volunteer at Piner.  For questions, please contact Jody Bohman at 859-957-0046.

Introducing "MyBusBuddie" parent portal

Parents and guardians are always interested in the status of the bus that transports their children.  While everything possible is done to assure that the buses operate on schedule, situations arise that can cause delays in their arrival times at a student’s stop.

The Kenton County School District desires to keep parents and guardians informed of the current status and location of their bus, and to make it as easy as possible to provide this communication without interfering with parents’ normal schedule.
