Stay Healthy and Safe

I am still in shock that for the next 3 weeks, I will not be able to see the hallways filled with Prospect students and staff, hear the laughter coming out of the lunchroom, listen to stories from kids, and all of the daily happenings at school. I hope that everyone stays safe and healthy while we are away from each other!


Please understand that eLearning is new to all of us. The teachers and I are learning as fast as we can to ensure it is a success! If you have any questions or need help at any time, please reach out to me or my staff. We will be working everyday and would love to help!

Schedule for eLearning Day

As I move into unfamiliar territory with my own children learning from home, and both my husband and I work, I have thought about how I would want to schedule their day at home. What I know about my own kids, they need structure, and don't always plan their time efficiently and will let the day get away from them. I know I would find them playing video games, watching videos and playing on their phones all day! (My three boys ages are: 12 year old twins and an 18 year old).


Below is a schedule that I have put together:

eLearning Tips:

  • Daily Attendance Form- Click Here to access the form. The form will also be sent out to families via parent/guardian email daily.
  • D181 eLearning Site
  • Prospect eLearning Site
  • The first three days of student work will primarily focus on grade-level skill maintenance.
  • On Monday Prospect teachers will be developing high-quality individualized plans for days 4 and beyond that will include instruction in new content. (Some students may have brought home work in their backpacks, there will be guidance on Day 4-10.)
  • On Day 4, students will continue to go to the Prospect eLearning Site, but will click on their teacher's name to find daily lesson plans.
  • In grades 3-8, students may be working in a digital platform (Google Classroom) where they will find assignments, but they should still continue to check the daily lesson plans on the Prospect Site. It will indicate where students will find all assignments for each day.
  • Password Flyers with district-wide subscriptions were sent home with your child on Friday.
  • If any student left something at school that is needed, the building will be open on Monday.
  • More information to come regarding turning in assignments.
My kiddos know their daily schedules by heart, but that may not be the case for our younger students. I have added their art and music schedule below if you would like them to have some consistency while they are at home. First through Fifth Grade students have Physical Education everyday!
