Picking Up Your Child's Materials

Picking Up Your Child's Materials

Prairie Families,

We hope this communication finds you well.  Our D96 staff has worked to ensure student materials have been located and organized for an effective student material pick up experience. 

Elementary Student Material Pick-Up will take place:

  • Wednesday, May 20th from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
  • Thursday, May 21st from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
  • Friday, May 22nd from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  

If you will NOT be picking up your child’s materials and would prefer for student materials and personal belongings to be donated, please complete the Prairie OPT OUT: Student Material Pick Up form.  By completing this form, you are indicating that you are aware that all student personal belongings, supplies, and materials will be donated and will not be available for pick up in the future.

As always, our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our D96 staff and community.  Please read the following details closely to ensure that all health and social distancing guidelines are adhered to.


Sign up for one 15 minute slot using this Sign-Up Genius link.  If you have multiple children in various grade levels, you will pick up all of their materials at the same time.

Materials pick up will take place in the circle drive by the front door to the school which is the parent pick-up and drop-off area.  Be sure to come at your scheduled time.

You will enter the circular drive and PLEASE FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS of staff directing traffic.  Please do not exit your vehicle here, but be prepared to open your trunk or area of your vehicle where your student items can be placed.  Once you have obtained your materials, please exit the circle drive promptly and safely.  We are asking that you do not converse with others including staff.  You may email any questions you have before or after the materials pick up process. 

If your child has school library books or textbooks in his/her possession, please bring them with you and place them in the bin at the end of the circle drive.  You may need to exit your vehicle to do this.

Hold up a sheet of paper in the car window with your last name and grade level printed in large, bold print.

To keep the student pick up process manageable, we will NOT be sending student materials home with other families.  Thank you for your understanding.

If you will not be returning to District 96 in the fall, we will have a separate date/time for technology collection.  The purpose of this 15-minute slot is to return student materials to families and library books to the school.

Thank you,
