    Some Quick tips during our "stay at home" order
    • Check your teachers classroom pages. Teachers are home but are awaiting any questions or concerns you have about learning activities. 
    • Check the Steilacoom Historic School District home page for any updates.
    • Reach out if you need help. Email is the quickest way to get a hold of a teacher or staff member.
    • As of now sports and afterschool activites are on hold until we have an all clear. 
    • Check "Learning Activities" links on your teacher pages. These assignments can be turned in for direct feedback from your teachers but will not be graded.
    • If you or someone else is being cyberbullied please let us know. While we are not in session and an in-school consequence most likely will not occur we can still reach out to the parties to intervene. 
    • We still monitor our Safe Schools site. If you would like to report something this link provides help. 

    Some information for parents and students about Technology and disciplinary actions:
               *  Facebook has an age minimum (13). Any abuse will be reported.
               *  We take cyberbullying very seriously (whether it is a cell phone text, email, or other form of electronic bullying), it is a state law
    http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=28A.300.285
      . Any cyberbullying maybe reported to the state and or police.  
        As a nation, we are dealing with more and more cyberbullying. It is our hope and goal that our school community has no bullying what-so-ever. However, we are limited to what happens outside of Pioneer Middle School. Please email me or Mr. Stout with any possible bullying and we will discuss the appropriate steps to stop it. If we (the Pioneer Administration) do not know what is happening then we can not address it in a timely, effective manner. For more advice on technology and bullying or just some guidelines to give your kids, I recommend a website called
    Common Sense
      (to visit just click on the link, it is a free resource).
      I am very excited for the upcoming school year and the achievement that we will accomplish as Pirates!
        If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to
    email me
      or call me. Please check our calendar on our school website for any upcoming events.
