Prairie Mountain Helps Puerto Rico

Prairie Mountain staff and students are having a cash donation drive 10/2-10/20 to fund Red Cross disaster relief in Puerto Rico. Although completely optional, we have set a goal for all staff and students to each donate $1.00, or whatever they can. This would allow us to gift Red Cross in the neighborhood of $800.00. We have the opportunity to demonstrate the Prairie Mountain Lifeskill of empathy, and to show compassion and support to the many thousands of families in Puerto Rico who were left without housing, food or water after hurricane Maria devastated the island September 20th. Thank you for considering supporting this worthwhile and important effort.

Hi Prairie Mountain Families,

We are excited to share the District’s finalized plans to make up lost classroom time due to the six Snow Days and two Delayed Starts we’ve already experienced. These changes will allow Prairie Mountain students to recover meaningful instructional time without putting a big dent in family summer plans.

The new schedule is attached, and here are the changes:

  • February 13 (previously a high school no-school day) will become a school day for all district

students.

  • February 20 (Presidents Day) will become a school day for all students
  • March 3 (previously a no-school day for K-8 students) will become a school day for all students
  • Monday June 19th, and Tuesday June 20thwill be full school days for K-11 students (seniors will  

              have graduated)

  • June 20thwill now be the last day of school for students (it will be a full-day, not an early release)
  • If we have additional Snow Days this winter they may be added to the calendar after June 20th
