Please remember to Mask up!

Parents, please remember to send at least two masks with your learner each day. There are many times the kids drop their mask, or sneeze in their mask and they need a new/ fresh one. Thank you for your help with this.

Lovely fall weather

As the temperatures get cooler, our lost and found gets heavy with winter-wear. Please label all jackets, and sweaters with your child's name so they will be returned to them.

Photo day is this week!

This is for traditional learners only. We will take virtual learner pictures another day soon! There will be a makeup day for any learner who is absent or in quarantine.


Our district has announced it will be offering a free breakfast and lunch to all of our learners through a waiver provided by the USDA until December 18! Learners wishing to receive the free breakfast meal should report directly to the breakfast line upon arriving at school and will consume the meal in the cafeteria as usual. Virtual learners will be able to pick up breakfast/lunch at designated times as well. Updated menus are located below.

All of the Cool Kids are (Still) Reading

A Quick story from the history of PRES....For four years, we had a large room that was set aside for a library but we had ZERO funds to create the library every young person deserves. With lots of fundraising, community support and support from the PR board of education along with help from PRES lead learners and administration... a library was created last year. It is far from the library we have planned so we keep working hard bit by bit to achieve our dream. So...our most talked about and asked about t-shirt is back with a new color. The shirts are $15.00 and the last day to order is September 28th. Click below to order yours today!
