School Retirees Appreciation Week 2019

Every day, in Prosser School District and around the nation, students have their lives changed by exceptional employees we have working in our schools. Indeed, many of us have shared this experience in our upbringing, and for a few, it has inspired us to serve the next generation of leaders in the same way we were served. I write this letter to praise the lasting efforts that many of our retired school personnel have put forward. It is a noble cause to give your life to the hope, promise, and future of our children. On behalf of the Prosser School District and the Prosser School Board, I would like to express my gratitude to all of the retired school personnel who have worked so hard for the children in Prosser.

Our retired teachers, administrators, and classified personnel have changed the lives of our past, current, and future students. Because of their commitment and efforts Prosser School District and its Board of Directors recognizes the proclamation as set forth by Governor Jay Inslee declaring the week of March 18-24, 2019, as SCHOOL RETIREES APPRECIATION WEEK.

Although many of our school employees have retired from their service in public education, we see many of them continuing to make a difference in our schools, our churches, and through their voluntary work in community agencies. In short, they are one of the reasons Prosser is a great place to live.

Please join the Prosser School District and the Prosser School Board and say thank you to all of our retired personnel. Our retired school employees have made a difference and continue to make a difference in the lives of our Prosser children.

For Kids,
Matthew Ellis
Superintendent



Threat to the Prosser School District
On Tuesday February 26th, the District was notified of a threat posted on social media regarding a potential shooting at a Prosser High School.  Multiple law enforcement agencies immediately responded to the report and are investigating the threat.  They have been in close communication with district administration throughout the investigation.  For safety reasons, we cannot share details of our communication, however, we can share that law enforcement agencies are pursuing all leads that have been provided to them.
All Prosser schools have building-specific lockdown drills, fire drills, and other safety drills on a regular basis throughout the school year to ensure staff and students know the protocols and procedures in the event of an emergency. In addition, Prosser High School and Housel Middle School have a trained security agent and we have a uniformed School Resource Officer from the Prosser Police Department assigned to the district to provide support.
Classes and activities will go on as scheduled on March1, 2019.  Additional district staff and police will be present during the day to support students and staff. Additionally, the Prosser School District does ask that students adhere to the school dress code and not wear trench-coats, horseman’s dusters, or any long loose-fitting overcoats. Again, if you or your family member is in possession of any information relating to this threat, please contact the Prosser Police Department or the Prosser School District Office.
