West Prairie Elementary News For You


  • A big thank for all of the generous support for our Fannie May fundraiser.Both schools did really well with sales and it allows us to promote positive behavior and fun rewards in our schools.One of my favorite things to do is to provide a reason for kids to smile. The Fannie May orders will arrive before Thanksgiving.


  • In the event your child is absent please call the school office, 309.456.3920.  There is an answering machine in the event you need to call early of a morning or after work.  If your child is at a doctor or dental appointment please ask that office to provide a written excuse and send it to school.  In the event you forget, the office can fax the excuse to 309.456.3936.


  • Pre-Arranged Absence.   There is a form included with the school handbook (it can also be found at WP103.org) that should be provided one week prior to a scheduled absence.Example: Family Vacation.


  • Clothing. Once in awhile there is a need to change clothes at school.  We do have a limited number of changes in the building.  If your child needs to borrow a set of clothing please wash them and return ASAP. Thank you!
