Checks to Pine Trail

Parents: Your check is welcome at Volusia County Schools. The District recognizes that occasionally a parent may inadvertently overdraw a checking account and a check may be returned by the bank. In order to recover these funds in a private and professional manner, Volusia County Schools has contracted with CHECKredi, a company specializing in the collection of returned checks. 
Each check written to a school or the District must have the maker’s name, address, and one phone number. When a person writes a check to a school or the District, the person writing the check agrees that, if the check is returned, it may be re-presented electronically on the same account for the full face amount and a fee established by Florida law.  
CHECKredi will contact you by mail and by telephone in order to make arrangements to pay before attempting to re-present the check electronically. Payments of the check and fee may also be made online at using a credit card, debit card or electronic check without any additional fees. For a convenience fee, payments may be made over the telephone at (877) 524-7334 by credit card, debit card, or electronic check. Payments cannot be made at a school or the District.

School History

Pine Trail Elementary opened in August of 1982. The majority of its students and faculty came from Tomoka Elementary and Ormond Beach Elementary. During the first year, 1982-1983, Pine Trail was housed at Tomoka Elementary. The two schools shared a lunchroom, media center, playgrounds and other facilities but the Pine Trail classrooms and administrative office were housed in portables. Pine Trail Elementary welcomed students at its new facility on 300 Airport Road in Ormond Beach in August, 1983.

Over the years Pine Trail has received numerous awards including, Outstanding School - State of Florida (1985-1986), National Award of School of Excellence (1985-1986), Meritorious School/School of Distinction (1990-1991), Little Red School House Award (1991-1992), and a FLDOE School of Excellence (2017, 2018 and 2019). Using money from a grant, A Walk Through History was developed by art teacher Marla Shulenburg and Pine Trail students from each grade level. The walk depicted famous people in history. To find out more about this school and others in our district, please click on the link below.
