    Visitors

    Unfortunately, at this time, visitors are not allowed in the building. However, if you are eager to get invloved, please look below for upcoming volunteer opportunities.


    Volunteers Needed!

    Parent Liaisons - Becca Pakter & Alissa Ostroot

    Becca and Alissa serve as a liaison between teachers, parents, students, support staff and the community regarding educational programs, services and various student issues; assist in coordinating and arranging various programs and services to meet the needs of students. Research shows that the number one indicator of a child’s success in school is parent involvement. Including, attending conferences, checking grades on Parent Portal, providing a quiet study location, or having family dinners and discussing your child’s day. There are also many opportunities here at Prairie View. Most are one-time events or fundraisers averaging a one to two-hour commitment. 

    Special Talents?

    We are also interested in your special talents. Would you be willing to come and share with a class about your job, travels, hobbies or anything else unique to you? Do you enjoy gardening or repairing items? Get creative! We would love to find a special place for you!

    • Criminal background checks are required for volunteers who will have contact with students.
    • Contact with students includes field trips that involve a volunteer in charge of a group, and students are not directly under the supervision of a district employee at all times.
    • Contact with students also includes any activity in the building where students may be in proximity of the volunteer, and students are not directly under the supervision of a district employee at all times.

    Medication Drop Off

    We are requesting that families drop all Health Action Plans and medications off at Prairie View before all the excitement of the first day of school, ensuring that all daily and emergency medications are available to our students when they need them. 

    There will be a collection station for all action plans and medications located at the front door of Prairie View:

    Tuesday, August 31st 8:00am-3:00pm
    Wednesday, September 1st 8:00am-3:00pm and 5:00pm-6:30pm
    Thursday, September 2nd 8:00am-3:00pm and 5:00pm-6:30pm

    Ensure that all action plans or doctor's orders are current (dated within one calendar year), medications must not be expired (we can not administer expired medications at school) and in their original packaging with the pharmacy label intact.  For over the counter medications, all items need to be clearly labeled with your students name.

    Please complete all required information when filling out the details on the labeled bag (that will be provided at the collection station) when you are dropping off any supplies to ensure all medication is safely collected.  This information will include:

    • STUDENTS NAME
    • BEST CONTACT NUMBER TO REACH YOU
    • NUMBER OF TABLETS (if dropping of daily medication)
