We are so excited to to start a new year and welcome the students back! Hopefully everyone was able to relax and spend time making family memories over the winter break.
NEW SECURITY SYSTEM:
Starting next week, Prairie Crossing will change the way visitors and volunteers sign into our building. As you know, student safety is our number one priority and to that end, our school will be implementing a new check-in system called Raptor.
When you arrive at school to volunteer or visit, we will ask you to swipe your driver's license at our main office (this will only need to be done once). After swiping, licenses will be verified against the national sex offender database of all 50 states, and any custodial checks. Once cleared you will receive a sticker badge to wear during your time at school. Once your license has been swiped into our system, you will only need to sign into the kiosk in order receive a badge at future visits.
We know this will be a change, but we are excited to join all of the other DCSD schools in getting this system implemented, and continuing to keep our students safe. We will send out more communication as December comes to a close. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this change.

COLDER WEATHER/WINTER COATS
Please remember that with winter fully upon us to have children come dressed ready for colder recesses. we would like to have students enjoy the fresh air and have room to run whenever possible! Please label all coats and jackets with names so that we can return lost coats to the correct child.. we often have lots of jackets in our lost and found that end up getting donated every 3 to 4 months.
