Car Rider Families,
We appreciate your patience during these first few weeks of school, as we change and adapt to our new normal. One of the many things we have had to modify is our car rider line and procedures. Because so many families have chosen to have their child(ren) be car riders this year, our car rider line has grown, and subsequently take longer at arrival and dismissal. In order for us to keep our line running efficiently, we kindly ask that you help with the following during arrival:
  • Please have your child(ren) ready to go before getting out of the car (backpacks and lunch boxes ready, masks on, etc).
  • If at all possible, and for the safety of your child(ren), please have your child(ren) exit your car from the passenger side.
  • Please refrain from getting out of the car. If you need to get out with your child for any reason, please pull over into one of our parking spots, and walk your child to the front door area.
We appreciate your understanding and help in this matter!

Dr. Martin and the Bell Prairie Staff
  • Paper Towels
The school could use some additional supplies. If you are able to donate any of the above, please drop them off at the front office, or send them in with your student. Thanks!!
Please reach out to Bell Prairie Counselor, Dr. Bunch, if you need resources. She can help with many things including food and clothing. 816-321-4272 or
The Box Top Program earns Bell Prairie $0.10 for every one received. That adds up!!! There are many different options to collect Box Tops for Bell Prairie.
