What is Fun Run?

The Fun Run is our largest PTO fundraiser that typically raises about $20,000 for our school annually.  These funds enrich the lives of Lone Pine students, support our staff, and help to build our community.

The Fun Run promotes student fitness, and provides an exciting way to involve students in supporting Lone Pine. Please donate whatever you are comfortable with as a family. In the past, the average family donation has been $65, which has allowed us to implement programs that enhance your child’s school experience.

Did someone say prizes?!
There are many great prizes to be won by the students who raise the most within their class, their grade, and even within their birthday month!
**A Reserved parking spot for the year

school bus

For those families who signed up for bus transportation through the online registration process, new routes will be available under the “Transportation” tab in the ParentPortal on September 3 (that tab may not show until bus schedules are posted).  Please see the Transportation page on the District website for more details about bus schedules, stop locations, and the new bus GPS app, Stopfinder. All questions about bus transportation should be referred to the Transportation Department directly at 248-341-6290.

  • If you live in the Lone Pine bus zone and did not request bus transportation as part of your annual online registration process, your student will not be scheduled for bus transportation at the start of the school year.  Please refer questions or concerns about buses directly to the Transportation Department, not to the Lone Pine office.  The BHS Transportation Department direct line is 248-341-6290.
  • Covid mitigations on school buses will remain the same as last year.
    • Masks must be worn when entering, exiting, and at all times while on the bus.

GET invite

Lone Pine families have an open invitation to join our building Global Ed Team (GET). This is a learning group that meets monthly before school (virtually) to grow together in our commitment to being anti-racist. This is a low commitment group, participants are free to come when they can with no long-term obligation. There's no preparation needed before meetings, and no "to-do's" to be responsible for afterward.

Why join GET? We have some rich, thought provoking conversations on issues related to equity and inclusion, diversity, gender issues, ableism, ageism, anti-racist education and parenting, and more. Sometimes we read and discuss an article, or watch a short video and discuss, or examine building or district data to see what it tells us. We debrief what's happening at the district GET, share resources (for children and/or adults), and brainstorm ways we can make Lone Pine a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all students and families. If this sounds like a mission you can get behind, give GET a shot! 

Our first meeting of the year will be scheduled in early October. If you'd like to drop in and join us, email Dr. Hillberry at and we'll send you the agenda and meeting link before the next meeting. We hope you'll join us!

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures


  • Student drop off will begin at 9:00AM for the AM. Do not let your child out of your vehicle until you see a staff member on duty in the car drop off line. Note that our goal is to prevent students from congregating in lines or crowds and expedite movement directly to classrooms.
  • Students arriving by bus or by car will circle around the back of the building to directly enter their classrooms from the playground. First and second graders will go around the preschool side, kindergarten and 3rd graders will go around the fine arts wing side. Parents may park and walk their children to the classroom door. Please be sure to mask up and practice social distancing should you pursue this option. And much as I'd love to see everyone's new puppy, please leave your furry friends at home if you plan to walk your child to their classroom. Classrooms will be marked, teachers will be waiting in the doorways, and staff will be on hand to assist students in finding the correct door. It would not be a bad idea to practice this routine with your child the weekend before school if you have a few minutes to do so.
  • Students will wash hands immediately upon entering the classroom. 


  • Students riding the bus will exit their classrooms through the door to the playground, and walk around the school to the front of the building to board the bus. Staff will be on hand to supervise and assist. We'll be providing colored bracelets and back-pack tags to help students remember their assigned bus. Please do not remove the colored tag from the backpack.
  • Once bus riders have departed, classroom teachers will escort remaining students out through their classroom doors to the playground and walk them to the parking area behind the preschool (this will be blocked off--no parking) where they will wait until they are called to their family vehicle. If you choose to park and walk to greet your child, please wait for them in this area. Be sure to wear a mask and keep adequate social distance between yourself and others. Again, we ask that you do not bring a dog with you to greet your child.

We anticipate long waits in the pick-up line this year, please pack your patience and give yourself ample time, or if possible consider walking up to school to pick up your child.
