PRE Newsletter

August 20, 2021

We have had a very busy week at Prairie Ridge! All of our 1st-5th grade students have been busy learning about their new classmates as well as learning the procedures and routines within the classroom and building. Our kindergarten students started in their forever classrooms on Thursday, and now they are settling in.

Picture day is coming up soon, so please make sure you have the date marked on your calendar! Enjoy your weekend!

A Friendly Reminder About Morning Procedures

A few friendly reminders...

  • Students should arrive at the school no earlier than 8:30 A.M. This is when supervision starts.
  • It is IDEAL to have students arrive between 8:30-8:40 A.M. so that students can get to their classrooms and get settled before the 8:45 A.M. tardy bell.
  • If you are dropping your child off in morning car loop, please make sure they exit the car on the side next to the sidewalk.
  • Please drop your child off starting at 8:30 A.M. and then continue moving out of the car loop line. Please do not sit and block the car loop.
  • If your child is late (after 8:45 A.M.), please park your car and walk your child inside. You will need to sign-in your child in the office, and masks are required to be worn inside the building.
  • Please do NOT use the bus loop to drop off your child.
  • Please do not use your cell phone when driving.

Our morning arrival and afternoon dismissal are VERY busy times, and we want to ensure safety for ALL of our students. Thank you for helping with this! If you have questions or need clarification, please reach out.
