    Parent Pick Up/Drop Off

    We are requesting that all parents observe the following expectations:

    • Put student and staff safety first when driving on or near school grounds.
    • Drive vehicles to the farthest open slot around the circle to allow more parents to pick up/drop off their children.
    • Pick up and drop off students within the designated area only.   
    • Be aware of students and staff who are in the crosswalk areas at all times.
    • Do not drive through the crosswalk area when students/parents/staff are crossing.
    • Park in the lot if entering the building. (Do not park in the pick up/drop off area.) We discourage parents from walking into the building to pick up their children at the end of the day; however, students must have an adult walk with them from the building to the parking lot.
    • Observe all posted traffic signs and traffic laws.  

     General Information

    • Supply lists can be found at many local stores and on our school website under the Families tab.
    • Visitors are not allowed in the building. 
    • We will use a ‘no check’ policy at Prairie View.  All school payments, including lunch, will need to be made with cash or credit/debit cards.  We are only able to accept checks in specific circumstances.  
    • We will use online conference scheduling this year.  Parents will receive more information about this process in October.  If parents do not have access to a computer to complete the online scheduling, the school office will be able to assist with the process during the sign-up window.

    Please look for additional information from our school via postal service and email prior to our first day of school.  If you have questions, concerns, or needs, please do not hesitate to call our school office.
