Message from the Principal
Hello Prairie Friends and Families,
Thank you so much for your support as we navigate this transition to virtual learning together. Shout out to all of the Prairie staff who made the adjustments necessary to continue educating our learners with your help from home. Please reach out to teachers for any support you need. Our team wants to wish you an enjoyable spring break with your families. We will miss you! See you (virtually) in a week!

Attendance in Virtual Learning
Attendance is being taken every day for students who are participating in the virtual learning environment. We understand that there will be times your child may not be able to participate. If they are actually sick or "absent" from virtual learning for another reason, please email your child's teacher or Mrs. Anderson in the office. (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Safe Arrival attendance system has been deactivated at this time.
Depending on your notification settings in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal, you may be receiving attendance alerts that your child has been marked absent. Here are the directions to disable that notification in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal:
Click on the "person" icon in the upper right hand corner
Click on Settings
Click on Notification Settings
Unclick "Attendance is Updated"

Playworks is launching a virtual recess starting today! It will happen 3 times a day (11am, 1pm, 3pm), Mon-Fri through Facebook live! All you have to do is like Playworks on Facebook and log on and follow along!
Do you want to play right now? Check out this link for youtube videos to all of our favorites as well as a bunch of play resources:
It is a great way for our students to break up the day, get moving, and refocus for learning! Do you have a favorite game? Take pictures and tag with #PlayAtHome or #PlayworksAtHome to teach other people your family's favorite!
