Pittsylvania County Schools’ School Nutrition Program makes every effort to follow monthly menus as planned; however, due to inclement weather that can affect food deliveries, it may become necessary for school cafeterias to modify their published menus for a couple of days. Menus should be “back on track” as soon as possible after normal operations resume.

Staff members using this new system will now receive e-mail notification that the work order has been entered into the system as well as follow up e-mails informing them of the status of their work order. Additionally, this new system will route the work order request to the appropriate technician who can then directly contact staff should questions arise. (More)

Military Families
In nearly every community in Virginia, there are children with parents or guardians on active duty with the armed forces. In fact, Virginia leads the nation – with nearly 80,000 – in the number of students with military ties. Virginia's public schools are committed to the care and education of the children these brave men and women have left behind.  VDOE, in collaboration with a number of military authorities, provides resources concerning children of mobilized military personnel for families and educators.

TeacherDirect is designed to establish a direct line of communication with classroom teachers and educators. The goal of TeacherDirect is to provide a way to share new instructional resources created by VDOE staff as well as make teachers aware of professional development and grant opportunities, and other information of special interest to teachers and their students
