The Pollock Pines School District is pleased to announce the selection of Kevin Potter as the new Pinewood Elementary School principal, effective July 1, 2016. Mr. Potter is a hardworking, tireless educator and leader who guides his decisions with the question, “Is this good for students?”  Superintendent Kevin Monsma stated, "I am confident that Mr. Potter’s leadership, commitment to ensuring that every child is treated as our own, his honesty, expertise and unapologetic desire to seek perfection will continue to help move both Pinewood and our district forward."


Mr. Potter is described by his current colleagues and students who wrote, " I know the school and the students are in good hands because I know every decision he makes has the question, “Is it good for students?” at its core. I challenge you to find a more talented and dedicated educator than Kevin Potter.  Kevin’s belief in students and the potential that resides in each and every student is remarkable.”


Mr. Potter currently serves as the  Leadership and Activities Director at El Dorado High School.  However he has also worked as the freshman Earth science teacher and helped to set in place the Natural Resources program at El Dorado High School. Previous to those assignments he served as the  7/8 grade math, science and physical education teacher at Mountain Creek Middle School and a Firefighter with CalFire. 


Please join us in welcoming Mr. Kevin Potter to our Pollock Pines family.

New Immunization Requirements for 2016

Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, are no longer an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California.  Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade. 

  • Documentation of required immunizations must be submitted to the school before the student is allowed to attend class. 
  • Parents/guardians of Medically Exempt students must submit a Medical Exemption letter from a licensed physician (M.D. or D.O.) and provide documentation of immunizations which have been received.

For more information about SB 277, please see the Frequently Asked Questions available at: http://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/sb277faq/.

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Health’s website at www.shotsforschool.org, or contact the El Dorado County Immunization Assistance Program at 621-6100.
