Prairieview School Bulletin for Wednesday, August 22, 2018
Special schedule for the first day of school
For the first day of school ONLY, students will START the day in PLAN and end the day in PLAN. PLAN is similar to advisory or a homeroom. While there on the first day, students will get some basic information about Prairieview and their PLAN teacher will help make sure students know what they need to know to navigate the first day. Friday will follow a typical PLAN Day schedule. All regular schedules are available here on the Prairieview page of the Waukee website.
When is my lunch?
We will have three lunches this school year, all three will have both 8th and 9th graders. A Lunch will eat before their 4th period class. B Lunch will eat after 4th period and before their 5th period class. C Lunch will eat after their 5th period class. To determine which lunch you will have, you need to know the names of your 4th and 5th period teachers. With those names in mind, please check these instructions: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1P-bQ70mfo-2vM807H02JMQq5TUYKpwJTYeK23brp8-A/edit?usp=sharing. Given that, we are finding some students whose schedules do not follow the listed options. If your student falls into that case, please email building secretary, Hope Johnson, as firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the main PV office at 515-987-2770, so we can check and adjust the schedule if needed.
Parking options for PV student drivers
Unfortunately, we do not have any designated parking available for our students. Spaces that were available for our students in past years will now be reserved for Waukee High School upperclassmen who purchase parking permits. There are not enough spaces for all of the WHS students, even with the addition of a new parking lot. The district recognizes that this causes problems for some of our families, especially those whose students have before- or after-school practices or rehearsals. These families have some options: 1) Students may park at the Waukee Innovation and Learning Center (WILC), 295 SE Ashworth and then board a shuttle to the high school. Details about pick-up times are being worked out. That information will be made available to you as soon as it is determined. 2) Park in a nearby neighborhood. 3) Carpool with upperclassmen on their athletic team/activity group if that's an option. 4) Park together with other team members and walk together.
