Hello Pioneer Parents


Monday, August 21st, is the first day of school for both 7th & 8th graders. School begins at 7:45 and ends at 2:15.

Compact Days are every Wednesday with dismissal at 1:15.

Please see the school calendar in your child’s planner for all minimum and non-school days for this school year.


If your child was not here for schedule pick-up day – they will need to return the completed “Student Emergency Card” from the parent portal (it is important to make sure both parents/guardians are listed UNDER the contacts tab and that ALL 6 of the authorizations have been signed for this school year).  

This form MUST be turned in at the tables in front of the office beginning at 7:15 on Monday morning. Students will not be able to attend school without this form.


If your student has not turned in their proof of the Tdap immunization, you must also bring that with you on the first day of school.  Students cannot attend school without this immunization.


Beginning on Monday the nurse will be available to receive medication.

If your child requires medication on campus it must be brought in to the health office by a parent or guardian with the district required form – NO EXCEPTIONS!


It is very important that all parents and students each sign up for their own Schoolloop account. We do not send fliers home at the jr high level. All communication is done through Schoolloop.

If you need information on Schoolloop please stop by or call the school office.


FYI - The Aeries Parent Portal and Schoolloop are two completely different sites and are used for different reasons.

Parents need to have both accounts (Parent Accounts).

All students must have a Schoolloop student account.

If you want information on what the different accounts are used for, please stop by the school office, we will be happy to explain it to you.


Thank you for listening and we look forward to an exciting school year!

Message from Our Principal

Welcome to Pioneer Jr. High School, home of the 49ers.  We are excited about our learning community here on campus!

I look forward to seeing all of our returning students and meeting our new arrivals.  I am generally out in front of campus before and after school, so if you see me and have a question, please don’t hesitate to come by. 

Our mission statement is “We reach, teach and touch the lives of junior high students, preparing them for tomorrow.  We expand their intellectual and physical abilities, develop high levels of proficiency in a diverse curriculum, and address the needs of the whole individual”.  Guided by our core values of “integrity”, “respect”, “learning”, “honesty”, and “responsibility”, we take this mission as sacred to our calling as educators charged with meeting the educational needs of all students.  We invite the community to help us carry out this mission as we all play an integral part in shaping the lives of our students.

We have a history of strong parent involvement at Pioneer, and strive to work together to meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of all children.  Our staff has been working hard to prepare your children for rich and meaningful learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom walls. In addition to the implementation of Common Core, it is our desire to foster what is best in all of our students to become college and career ready upon graduation from high school.

Please check back often on our website to find out about all the wonderful activities and programs available at Pioneer Jr. High.  If you have questions please contact the main office, and we will direct your call to the right person.

Here’s to an excellent 2017-2018 school year!
