Hello, Prairie Queen Families!
I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break! I enjoyed recharging my batteries with rest and family fun, but it was so wonderful seeing all my Prairie Queen family come back through our Prairie Queen doors this morning! It’s hard to believe we only have less than 10 weeks left of school, so I hope you’ll join me in embracing every opportunity we have left. So, please join us at our first ever Family Game Night, this Thursday night, Mar. 22nd at 6 – 7:30 in the gym. The Student Council has a fun night planned, you won’t want to miss it!

Calling all Plant Lovers!
Prairie Queen has a new parent organization called “Growing Prairie Queen!” This plant loving group will help ensure our upcoming spring plant sale is a success. In the past two years the plant sale proceeds have purchased the two benches along the front walkway and the drinking fountain on the playground. This year’s goal is to purchase and install two permanent playground trash cans. If you are interested in being part of this parent group, please email Ms. Laura Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration and think GREEN -- Plants and Trash Cans!
Medications at school
Cold and flu season has arrived! Please remember the Health Office requires ALL medications, including over the counter cough drops, must be brought to the health office and administered there. Cough drops may not be in the classroom or kept in a student’s backpack as a safety precaution. Also, a Medication Administration Permission form must be filled out and turned into the Health Office when any medication is sent to school. This form can be found on the district web site or you may request one from us. Thank you for helping us keep Prairie Queen a safe environment!
Treats at school
All treats sent into school must be vetted through the front health office for classroom allergies. Please keep all treats in their original packaging or boxes. The original packaging and boxes display labels with possible allergens and food warnings. Without these labels we cannot determine if the food item is safe for an entire class. Thank you for your assistance and help keeping all our students safe at Prairie Queen.
Prairie Queen is “Closed” School
Prairie Queen 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.
Kids Club Consolidation Site
When there is no school or we experience a Snow Day, Prairie Queen Kids Club will be held at Walnut Creek. Walnut Creek Kids Club contact number is 402-898-9633.
