School Building News!

Prairie Lane Families:

We are excited to announce that the construction/renovation of our new Prairie Lane Elementary School is going well and we remain on target to have it done by the end of February. This year has been full of many challenges for all of us and we are trying to plan ahead to do what we think is best for our students as we contemplate yet another transition.

We are planning to move into the new facility this spring taking advantage of our district’s Spring Break and other strategic dates to help make this happen.

This will allow our 6th grade students to spend most of their last quarter of elementary school in their new Prairie Lane. Additionally, a spring move will allow us to work out many of the “kinks” that often accompany opening a new building, such as learning the new daily operating procedures so we can be better prepared for the start of the 2021-22 school year.

Below is the transition plan we intend to use. As with most things this year, this is subject to change. We plan to allow our teachers and staff three days to prepare for and unpack from the move.

NO SCHOOL for Prairie Lane students on Friday, March 19th
o All other district schools will be in session
o Prairie Lane teachers and staff will be working on the move

NO SCHOOL for students on Friday, March 26th
o All other district schools will be in session
o Prairie Lane teachers and staff will be working on the move

DISTRICT-WIDE SPRING BREAK IS MARCH 29th – APRIL 2nd

NO SCHOOL for students on Monday, April 5th
o All other district schools will be in session
o Prairie Lane teachers and staff will be working on the move

TUESDAY, APRIL 6th will be the first day of school in the NEW Prairie Lane

Best Wishes,

Belinda Westfall

Principal, Prairie Lane Elementary

  • Please note: There is a charge for EXTRAS, WATERS and 2nd MILKS
  • If you'd like your child to eat breakfast at school, we ask that they should be here between 8:10 - 8:15 am, so they do not miss out on important school time.

Brrrrr! It’s Getting Cold!

Be sure students bring coats, hats and gloves

so they are comfortable outside at recess!

Remember, Students must have snow pants AND boots

to play in the snow.
