Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to transport students to and from school tomorrow. Therefore, all Prairie Central schools will be closed tomorrow, January 14th. We will resume school on Tuesday, January 18th. The day will be treated like an emergency day, and will be made up at the end of the school year, making the last day of attendance for students Wednesday, June 1st barring any more cancellations. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes our families. Please know that we have explored every avenue to avoid this situation. All regularly scheduled after school activities will still take place.
