Platteview Band Boosters

Back by popular demand, PHS band boosters have 50 more Trojan blankets on order, and they will be here in May. The blankets are 60” x 80” double-sided, thick, and super soft. Great for spring/fall outdoor games, a graduation gift, or just to have on the back of the couch. They are $65.00 per blanket. We also have 5” x 5” Platteview Trojans vinyl decals for $5.00 per decal as well. Email Heather Wienk to order or with questions.

6th Grade Outdoor Education

Our 6th grade students will be taking part in outdoor education on Thursday, April 15 and on Friday, April 16. Springfield Elementary’s 6th grade students will also be attending. All protocols are in place to keep the students and staff safe. This is such a great opportunity for these students!

Medication at School

School is beginning to wind down for the year. Please remember that if your child has medication in the school Health office, you must pick it up by the last day of school. If you are not able to pick up medications, please contact the health staff at your child's school to make other arrangements. We will destroy medications left in the school office regardless if it is an over-the-counter medication or prescription.

Track and Field

Track and field for students in third through sixth grades will take place on Friday, May 7 at the Platteview High School track. The rain date is on Tuesday, May 11. We are still working out details regarding attendance and any other restrictions according to the directed health measures. We will communicate more information as the day draws closer.

Boys State Basketball

Congratulations to the boys basketball team for their Class B district championship win over Omaha Roncalli! We are very proud to have them represent our high school and district at the boys state basketball tournament in 2021. Due to their participation on Tuesday, March 9 at 11:15 a.m. in Lincoln, school will not be in session on Tuesday, March 9. If the boys win on Tuesday, there will be no school district-wide on Friday, March 12. If the boys lose on Tuesday, Friday, March 12 will be a regularly scheduled school day at all of our schools.
