Fire Lane Policy

From the Department of Public Safety:

Per the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:

  • 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does not include the After School Program nor any other activity at the school)
  • passengers actively loading or unloading during the day (this would cover students unloading in the morning at the beginning of the school day)

The focus of this information is to reemphasize that the only time a vehicle would be allowed in a Fire Lane would be to actively drop-off and/or pick-up a student when there is no waiting.  Other times, such as After School Program or after school activities would not be included.

 Please read the notification from the Department of Public Safety here.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Public Safety (678) 594-8620.

Climb Art at Pitner

Would you like to leave a permanent footprint at Pitner?  Here's your chance!  Pitner's PTSA and ASP have joined forces to bring you a rock climbing wall in the gym that has been hand painted by Scott McIntyre.  You can have a mountain, trail, or name in the mural for a small donation.  If you are interested in making a donation, please click here to download the form to send in with your child.

Scholastic Reading Inventory

Students in grades 1-5 take a reading comprehension test called the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) which is given in the computer lab three  times during the year.  You have probably seen the parent report coming home in your child's folder but then wondered what it meant.  Here is a chart that will help you get a better understanding of your child's lexile level.  Please understand that the SRI is only one assessment that the teachers use as part of your child's instruction.  Please click here to see the chart.
