We will still be offering lunches here at PPE Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. If you need a lunch for your child please come to the school and pull up in the pickup lane any time from 10:30am-12:30pm. We will run a lunch out to you.

Please wear your mask!

When entering the school at all during the day we need adults and students in grades 3 and up to have a mask on. We are hoping to stay open and would like to follow all procedures. Thank you for keeping us all safe and for helping to keep the students in school!

Winter gear

Please make sure students are being sent to school with proper winter gear every day. They should have a coat, snow pants, boots, gloves and a hat. The students will go outside as long as it is warmer than -10. Please help keep the kids warm!

A message from District Office

As the COVID situation continues to progress, District leadership is implementing further mitigation strategies both in response to the Governor’s message and in partnership with community health experts.

All before and after school athletics for grades K-12 will be temporarily suspended for three weeks through Sunday, December 6th. The District and community health personnel are monitoring the evolving situation and will implement additional mitigation strategies as warranted
