Dear Parents of Prairie Grove School District Students:

The Prairie Grove School District is very appreciative to the parents and guardians of our students for your assistance this school year on Wednesdays. Our ability to dismiss school at 1:30 on Wednesdays has allowed our teachers to have precious time to collaborate and work together to discuss what is best for your child in Prairie Grove Schools.

This message is to make you aware of a change in the 2022-23 school year that will start on August 17, 2022, our first day back to school. Currently, on Wednesdays, we run buses to deliver students back to their homes beginning at the regular daily dismissal of 3:10 p.m.  Supervision of students during this time, as you could imagine, required a large part of our teachers to be unable to participate or participate for a reduced time in their team meetings. To maximize this time for all staff, we plan to run our buses at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays rather than the usual 3:10, starting on August 17th. In effect, all of our students would be required to go home at this earlier time of 1:30, every Wednesday.

We are sending you this information early to start making plans for the 2022-23 school year.  If this is a problem for you, we have our Paw Prints After-School Program for our Elementary and Middle School students for a cost of $10.00 per day.  Paw Prints Registration

Our new school calendar is also attached for your convenience. 2022-2023 School Calendar
