Prairie Lane Drop-Off/Pick-Up Day and Procedures: May 15th (Rain Date May 19th)

Posted May 11, 2020

Prairie Lane’s family pick-up time on Friday, May 15th is from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  

(Raindate: May 19th)

May 15th is scheduled to be your opportunity to pick-up your child’s instructional materials and personal belongings from Prairie Lane as well as turn in any school and district materials.  Here are the exact procedures for Prairie Lane’s plan. 

The following are important details to coordinate an orderly and safe, outdoor drop-off & pick-up:

We are asking that families abide by an alpha assignment (by last name) for time of arrival on Friday, May 15th.  Please see the below chart:

9:00am-11:00am — Last Names:  A-G

12:00pm – 2:00pm — Last Names: H-O

2:00pm – 4:00pm — Last Names: P-Z


Procedures for Day of Drop-Off and Pick-Up of Materials

Please enter at 108th and drive directly to the school following the traffic signs.  You will remain in your vehicle at all times and drive through the cue similarly to a regular day of arrival and dismissal.  

There will be four designated grade level stations (5&6, 3&4, 1&2, K) located in the same order as a regularly scheduled dismissal.   You will drive to the designated grade level location to drop-off and pick-up materials. Each location will be manned by Prairie Lane staff.  Please stay in the line and have a sign on both the driver’s and passenger’s side of your car with the last name and grade level(s) so we can radio staff of the upcoming families.  Please tell staff your child’s name when you arrive at the grade level.  They will safely take materials from you and give you your child’s materials from school.  You will remain in your vehicle at all times.  

If you have multiple children at Prairie Lane, you will need to go to each grade level drop-off and pick-up zone.  Please stay in the line unless directed by a traffic guard.  We appreciate your understanding, patience and careful driving.   


What Should Parents/Students Do to Get Ready for Drop-Off on May 15th?

All textbooks, library books, instruments, other items that are the property of the school will need to be returned. Work that was completed at home during eLearning does NOT need to be returned.  Please put all materials into a grocery sack or bag.  On the front of the bag, label in large print: Child’s Last/First Name, Teacher and Grade Level



Westside Community Schools will continue to have access to many learning services through the month of June that are accessible on the iPad for student learning.  If you have a desire to discontinue learning through the month of June or are not returning to Westside Community Schools, please return the iPad, lightning cable, and charger at this time.  Westside will have another collection date during June 29 – July 2nd. This specific date will be communicated to you by the building principal.  


What Will Parents Receive at Drop-Off/Pick-Up?

Our teaching staff has been diligently working to carefully and safely bag all of your child’s belongings and instructional materials for the May 15th drop-off and pick-up day. You will receive your child’s materials, supplies and belongings from your child’s classroom and locker.  


Information to Keep this Day Safe and Healthy

Staff have been told to keep their interactions brief and without contact. Please do not take our brevity during the pick-up/drop-off time for a lack of caring. We miss all of our students deeply, but I have asked the staff to not engage in any close contact, hugs/high-fives or extended conversations.

This opportunity will be done in a way that prioritizes the health and safety of our families and staff.  Staff members will be wearing protective masks and gloves.  Staff will have bags at the stations and families will not be entering the school. They will come to your vehicle to pick-up your labeled bags.  If you or someone in your home is in quarantine or has Covid-19, please do not visit school.  We will find an alternate day and time for you to receive your materials.


We appreciate your support and adherence to our determined procedures.  On this day, we ask for your patience, cooperation and support as we swap materials.  This is unlike any year that staff, students and parents have experienced in closing down our classrooms and the school.  We appreciate all that you have done to support us and our Prairie Lane Panthers during this unprecedented time, including this last day of school.  

We thank you again for reading in detail this material, and we look forward to seeing you on Friday, May 15th.
