Students that currently participate in the district common summative language arts assessments are considered for participation in the summer program. Students are invited to attend Summer School based on their performance on district reading summative assessments.

  • No more worries about running out of lunch money!
    MySchoolBucks is a convenient option for the parents and students in our District.  It allows you to access your student’s lunch account online for making deposits and viewing account information.  You can say goodbye to the days of sending cash and checks to school and wondering how much money is left in the lunch account.  Benefits to you include:

    Convenience – The need for sending cash or checks is eliminated.  You can make payments at any time of the day or night.  With the Auto Pay recurring payment option, your first transaction can be your last.

    Peace of Mind – You will know that your child always has money available for meals and you can check the meal account balance online.

    Account Information – In addition to checking account balances, you will also be able to go online to check what your child is spending each day and what items they are purchasing.

    Faster Lunch Lines – As cash sales are eliminated through online deposits, lunch lines speed up in Junior and Senior High Schools, giving students more time to eat.

    How to Get Started...

    Before you begin enrolling, you will need to obtain the student ID number for each of your children.  This is not the PIN number they use in the lunch line.  Parents can obtain this number from the school or by calling the food service office at 402-537-6250.  Once you have obtained the student ID number, it's easy to enroll!

  • Important Notice from the Health Office

    In order for your child to be cared for appropriately and safely, the Papillion La Vista Community School District asks that all parents with children who have asthma, severe allergies, diabetes or seizures keep an action plan on file in the health office.  This includes students that self manage their asthma or diabetes.  All forms, including medication permits, are available for you to download from the district website under Health Services, or from your school nurse.    Please print the forms that you need and take them to your child’s doctor for updates. Send in the completed forms, with medications, to the school health office on or before the first day of school. Remember, new care plans are required each school year. Thank you for your cooperation.  Have a great summer!

  • Patriot Elementary is a Closed Building

    Patriot is considered a “closed” school.   If you move out of our attendance area, you may only be allowed to finish the current school year here.   Any requests beyond that will not be approved.   The district uses this process to help manage school/class sizes as much as possible.  Please contact Student Services at 402-537-6214 if you have questions.
