Find It Fast


  • April 6th Message from Mr. Zallis

    I hope you had a nice spring break and are staying healthy. While it was my hope that we would have been back in school today, sadly that is not the case as we continue to be impacted by Covid 19. I know I speak for the entire Prairie staff when I say how much we miss seeing our students and famiilies on a daily basis. Given these unprecedented times, we will continue educating students from home via remote learning which is aligned to the guidelines provided by the Illinois State Board of Education. Please read below for additional information on Remote Learning at the elementary level. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher.

  • UPDATED 4/7: Resources Available to Prairie Families

    This entire experience is new to all of us. It’s definitely a time of uncertainty and prompts many new feelings for everyone. Our best course of action is to maintain a positive and encouraging attitude in front of our kids. I wanted to inform Prairie families in need of resources that are available during this time of isolation. Families may be wondering how they are going to make ends meet during this time or fear they may not have enough food for their children. To view resources available click header for more info.

These are the families in our community who are most vulnerable to the overall impact of this virus. This fund is a part of NEF’s existing Kid Booster Anonymous Fund. Kid Booster helps students in times of need and always has. This fund is accessed by the district’s social workers to meet the needs of the most at-risk students in our community. They access this fund when no other source of funding can be found. It’s the safety net for our students. Donations can be made online at or via checks made payable to NEF and mailed to NEF, 203 W.
