Virtual Backpack Virtual Backpack

Pine Plains Central School District is creating a Virtual Backpack - your one-stop location for a host of school-sponsored and community-hosted events and activities! This will go live on December 1, 2017. You will be able to find a link to the Virtual Backpack page under Quick links on the school website.

If you have something you'd like considered for publication in our Virtual Backpack (local events only please!), please contact the Superintendent's Office at (518) 398-7181 x1401 or email 

Files MUST be in Word or PDF format to be considered for publication. Multiple-page files MUST be submitted in a single-file format, not as separate pages. All files must include the following disclaimer: "Flyer for distribution/information purposes only. This is not an PPCSD-sponsored event."  

File submissions MUST be received no later than Wednesday of the week you wish the posting to first appear. Postings are typically added to the Virtual Backpack on Friday mornings.

If you have any questions regarding this new website program, please contact the Superintendent's Office at (518) 398-7181 x1401 or email
