Dear Prairie Winds Students and Parents:

Welcome to Prairie Winds Elementary School!  We are anxious to extend our enthusiasm for learning and look forward to our partnership with our students and their families during the upcoming school year.  The 2016 – 2017 school year will begin on August 15th.   School hours will be from 7:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The school will open at 7:35 a.m. and the tardy bell will ring at 7:45 a.m.  Students must be picked up by 3:15 p.m. daily.  For bus route information, please watch your local paper for route assignments.

As summer is winding down, it is time to think about getting back into the school routine.   If your child is enrolled at Prairie Winds for the coming school year, you should have received a mailing that included the following:  a school supply list, teacher assignment, after school transportation form, and Kindergarten Orientation and Open House information.  Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled by kindergarten teachers and will be held the morning of August 11th.  Open House will be held on August 12th from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.   If you have any questions, please feel free to call or come by the school beginning August 1st between 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Pueblo School District 70 Nutritional Services has changed the prices for students for the upcoming year. Breakfast for students will be $1.00. Lunch prices will be $2.15; extra milk will be $0.60. Adult prices will be as follows: $1.00 for breakfast and $3.00 for lunch.
