Fall Conferences – October 12 & October 17

Conferences are a great way to connect with your child’s teacher. We will be scheduling conferences in the same way as we did last year, with times to sign up for in Skyward. SCHEDULING IS OPEN.  Click here for Sign Up Instructions. If you have a specific request for a phone or virtual conference, please schedule a time on Skyward and then contact your child’s teacher. There will also be opportunities for families to meet or check in with specialists, the reading teacher, and/or special education staff on conference nights as these staff are in the building and set up for those check-ins.

Hudson Prairie Pick Up/Drop Off Expectations

School Schedule

8:50-9:00 am – First Bell – Students can enter the building

9:00am – School Begins

Students should not arrive prior to 8:50 am. We appreciate parents holding students in their vehicles until our door greeters come out of the front doors to signal the start of the day. There is no supervision prior to 8:50 am. A friendly reminder, due to our secure doors we are asking parents to say goodbye to their children at the door before they enter the building.

The day ends at 3:53 pm, and if you are picking up your child they will be in the front of the building at that time.

How to Report an Absence

Families are now able to submit an absence request through Skyward for elementary students. This feature allows you to notify your student’s school when your student will be absent. To report an absence via Skyward, log into your Skyward Family Access Account and select the Attendance Tab. Families are still able to call the school’s Attendance Line to report an absence.
