Attendance Line: 515-987-2757
If your student will be late or absent or needs to be picked up early, the best number to call is our Attendance Line at 515-987-2757. Please leave your voicemail there. We recommend you add that to your phone contacts now. If your student needs to leave early, you may instead write a note and have your student take it to Jeni Adams, our Student Service Secretary, in the front office at the start of the school day to pick up a pass to get out of class at the appropriate time. When picking up your student before the end of the school day, you will need to come into the building to meet him or her in the office.
No student parking at Prairieview, but here's one option
There is no student parking at Prairieview. There is an option for Prairieview students to park at the Waukee Innovation and Learning Center (WILC) 295 SE Ashworth Rd. and then board a shuttle to Waukee High School. If your student wants to take advantage of this option, they need to park at the far west end of the parking lot. A shuttle bus will transport students at 7:30 am to WHS. Your student will then need to walk to Prairieview. At the end of the day, students will need to board the shuttle bus at WHS on the SE side (main entrance by the field house) for a 3:15 p.m. departure.
What's for lunch?
The breakfast and lunch menus are always available at https://www.schoolcafe.com/menus and on the School Cafe App. They will also be posted in real life at the school in the Commons and near the lunch line.
