Reminder Wednesday's are early release days and school will be out at 1:35 p.m.
We are excited to announce that the Pinckney Elementary year-long renovation is almost complete! The renovation has added a new art room, 2 new kindergarten rooms with restrooms attached, 2 new fifth grade rooms, multiple learning pockets, a new cafeteria and kitchen. We have moved the front entrance from the Mississippi Street side of the building to the traditional front doors facing 6th Street. The school now has updated safety locks on all classrooms and a secure entrance to the building. Currently a new drive and parking, fencing around the playground and landscaping are in the process of being completed. We are so excited to move in and start 2017-2018 in our updated space!
