Hello Prairie City Families: I wanted to let everyone know that graduation will take place on May 28, 2021 at the Prairie City football field at 6:00 pm, weather permitting. If the weather is not cooperating, we will move it to the New Gym. This year will not look like last year and we will have seating for everyone with the gorgeous background of Strawberry Mountain. We will still have the mandate of being in compliance of the COVID-19 regulations. If you have any question, please call the school. Thank you and Go Panthers!
I regret to inform everyone that the games against Monument for middle school football and volleyball have been cancelled. The high school volleyball game against Dayville/Monument for today has been cancelled as well as the high school football game for next week. We are still going to do intrasquad games today at 4 for middle school and 5 for high school when we will also recognize all the seniors. Sorry for the last minute bad news. Billy
There will be an Oregon Public University virtual tour for prospective college students and their parents on April 6th at 4, April 7 at 1, or April 7 at 6. Please go to the link and register if you are interested. Thank you. Mr. Colson https://sites.google.com/view/oputour2021/welcome?authuser=0

Good Afternoon Prairie City Families, I wanted to let you all know that we have a new positive COVID case in our school. I have attached the letter through this link: https://5il.co/qrfz. Please read and if you need further information, please call the school at 541-820-3314. We are working diligently with our local health authority to make sure we are in compliance. Thank you!
Just a reminder that the middle school football game against Culver is going to be played at 1:00. Thanks.
Under the Student Assessment Bill of Rights, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Oregon’s school districts must provide families with a “Notice of Statewide Tests and Opt-out Form” 30 days before the start of statewide testing. This year, school has been significantly disrupted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other factors. In response, ODE asked the United States Department of Education for a temporary pause (also known as a “waiver”) in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math testing. A pause is also being requested for science testing, but science testing is not subject to this opt-out rule. • If this waiver request is approved, then statewide ELA and Math testing will not happen this year, and there will be no need for parents to submit opt-out forms to their child’s school. • If the waiver request is not approved, test windows will open on April 13, 2021. Please click on the link to pull up the opt-out form: https://5il.co/qmqh ODE will update your district regularly with news about the waiver. Thank you and GO Panthers!
I know board appreciation has ended but wanted to give another shout out to these special people! Thank you Porche Kite of the ASB leadership team for the design! Go Panthers!!!
Reminder that sports pictures will be next this coming Monday after school. All players have or will be given a picture packet. Thank you.
The middle school volleyball games today at 4 and tomorrow at noon will be held in the new gym for more space and livestreaming through NFHS. Should be fun. See you there. Billy

Good Evening PC Families, Today we found out that we currently have two positive COVID cases in our school. We are working closely with the Grant County Health Department to monitor these cases and contact tracing. As of now, we have decided to continue with in-person learning and will closely evaluate the next few days for any changes. I have put a letter on our website (www.pcsd4.com) or you can access it here (https://5il.co/qfwd) and on our Facebook page explaining in more detail what our guidance and protocols are. Our number one goal is for the safety of our students and staff. Please feel free to call and ask questions. Thank you and Go Panthers!
