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!


Stay safe.

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. (vanderso@waukesha.k12.wi.us). 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:
