Lone Pine Elementary School

Lone Pine Elementary school is located in West Bloomfield Township. The mission of Lone Pine Elementary is to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which students achieve personal academic excellence, demonstrate caring and responsibility, and become empowered, internationally-minded citizens and lifelong learners.

The educational focus at Lone Pine is based on developing confident, creative, flexible, technologically savvy, 21st century learners and preparing them to anticipate and collaboratively solve the challenges in an ever-changing world. The Lone Pine staff and community are pleased to share with one another this mission of preparing students for the future.

New Update for School Lunch Program

As of January 25th, Bloomfield Hills Schools will use Community Pass only for all lunch program payments.  When logging into My Bloomfield and signing in to view a specific student, lunch balances and a transaction history will still be available.  However, payments will only be accepted through Community Pass.  

We understand that a lot of parents have appreciated the ability to make payments online, view transactions, and see account balances.  All of this will still be possible - the only change is that payments will no longer be accepted in the same location as you find balance information.  This is due to a rising cost environment in credit card processing fees that the district has historically not asked families to incur, but has rather paid on families' behalf.  The switch to 100% payment processing through Community Pass will allow us to retain the functionality of online payments, yet save money from the district's general fund.

This transition should be fairly seamless, but we recognize you may have some questions.  Please allow five minutes after processing a payment to contact us with any questions so we can digitally see the transaction on our end and better support your request.  In addition, please note that you may process payments for multiple items in the same shopping cart within Community Pass.  So, if you'd like to purchase lunch credits at West Hills along with Saturday swim lessons, please feel free to complete one checkout process for the entire family.

If you haven't already, please make sure you have your login information for Community Pass. If you have forgotten your login or password, please go to to view instructions on how to retrieve that information.  Instructions will be sent directly to the email that is listed as the primary email for your student's account. If you have issues with this process, please contact the Recreation Department at 248.341.6425.

The second annual district-wide Multicultural Celebration is on the horizon, coming up on Monday, March 18, 2019, at Bloomfield Hills High School, from 5:30 - 8 pm.  This event, involving all of our district schools, is a beautiful celebration of the many cultures represented by our students and their families.  The planning committee encourages students to participate in a variety of ways, from showcasing culture on an exhibit board, to sharing a music or dance performance. Students may work individually (with support from their families), in small groups, with school clubs, or with students from other district schools.  This year's theme is  Inspiring Figures, so each exhibit presented will feature a person, current or historical, who is originally from the selected culture, and has contributed to American society.  Please email any questions to  Lone Pine's school representative on the committee is Jeff Childs, who can be reached at  Click on the Participation Packet to learn more, and to sign up to participate! /uploaded/schools/LonePine/2019_Participation_Packet_as_PDF_(1).pdf  For more information about the Multicultural Celebration, follow this link: /uploaded/schools/LonePine/Multicultural_Celebration_2019.pdf
