Silver Fork School


School Closed- Tuesday September 16

Pollock Pines Elementary School District remains
closed for class Tuesday, September 16


The Pollock Pines Elementary School District will remain closed tomorrow – Tuesday, September 16, continuing the closure that began on Monday due to the King Fire. The continuing closure comes under the advisement of the incident command of the fire, who has been working in close cooperation with the school district to ensure student, staff and family safety. After a meeting Monday afternoon, it was made clear that a continuing closure would be in the best interests of our students, families and staff. 

“I am glad we are able to continue to work closely with incident command and the Red Cross in order to serve our community. We look forward to reopening our schools as soon as possible and returning our students to a completely secure environment,” said Superintendent Kevin Monsma.

The district was initially closed on Monday, September 15 because of the fire’s close proximity to the district. Currently, the fire crews are continuing to use Pinewood Elementary School as a staging area for fire suppression equipment and Emigrant Trail Educational Center as a Red Cross shelter. The district remains in close contact with the incident command and will keep families and the community updated through their website 


Pollock Pines Elementary School District is a district that is filled with great teachers, support staff and administrators who are all deeply committed to providing the best possible education for every single child in our district.  We are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence. Our district is family friendly and one that you will want to come and visit personally.

Silver Fork Marmots

At Silver Fork we believe that "Good things come in small packages!" Silver Fork school, with a roster of  8-10 students for the  school year, Kindergarten through 8th grade, is one of the few remaining one-room schoolhouses in California. Despite our small size we have big goals for our students. We have computers for every student and use up-to-date software. Our text books are current, and our library continues to add new books of every type. Our affiliation with the Pollock Pines School District provides greater opportunities for our students.

Without a doubt, education has changed a great deal since the "Little House on the Prairie" days. The wholesome atmosphere that a small school affords has stayed the same. We like that!
