Our Mission: The staff of the Prairie View Elementary School strongly endorses the goals and beliefs of the East Troy School District and believes that all our students can learn. Learning is a constant, continuous, and life-long process of connecting new and old ideas, building on previous knowledge, and helping students see relevancy in their learning to make sense of their knowledge. Therefore, we will provide a safe and respectful environment in which students will be challenged to grow and develop intellectually, socially and physically. 

Prairie View Panthers Promise To

Be Responsible • Be Respectful • Be Safe

Transportation Policy

Requests for changes to a student's after school destination must be made to the school office in writing or by phone before 12:00 noon.

Alternate afternoon busing changes are ONLY allowed for emergencies or regular babysitting arrangements.  Because so many of our buses are near capacity, all special requests will be limited.

Transportation Policy: 443.2


Parents should call the school office at 262-642-6720 x 3221 before 8:00 am if your child will be absent. If leaving a message, please include your name, your child’s name, and the reason for the absence. If your child will be arriving late, please also let us know approximately what time your child will be arriving and if s/he will be having hot lunch. 

Prairie View Elementary School uses the school notification system SchoolMessenger for attendance calls. The families of students whose absences have not been verified by 8:00 am with a parent/guardian will receive an automated phone call placed to primary phone and parent/guardian cell phone numbers listed in Skylert.  Click here for instructions on choosing your calling preferences.

If you know your child will be absent in advance, click here for pre-arranged absence form.  The necessary permission and signature(s) are to be obtained and turned into the office at least one (1) day prior to proposed absence.  If you have pre-arranged your child's absence, it is not necessary to call the office.

Attendance and truancy policies are available in the Student Informational Book.

Progress Reports

Progress reports are posted in Family Access following each quarter.  Our standards-based progress report gives you information about how your child is progressing toward meeting the district's standards during the course of the school year in each class. Standards specify what all students should know and be able to do.

  • Your child’s performance is measured against the standard, rather than simply being compared to other students in his or her class.
  • It gives every child the opportunity to meet or exceed our district’s standards.
  • It gives you a more detailed and honest assessment of how your child is progressing academically.
  • Behavior is reported out separately and is as important as the academic report, as they are the habits that students will need to be successful in high school and beyond.

Each indicator shows progress towards each specific learning targets for each course.

  • C- Consistently meeting grade level or IEP expectations
  • P- Making progress toward meeting grade level or IEP expectations
  • N- Needing support to meet grade level or IEP expectations
