    Welcome Back 2018-19 School Year


    A new school year brings the opportunity for a fresh start and we are excited to start the 2018-19 school year!


    Summer has come to an end and fall sports are in full swing.  We had approximately 450 students participate in our various programs throughout the summer.  Thank you to all who help ensure our students have a wonderful experience in summer rec activities, enrichment camps, academic programs and Club Vikes!


    This summer, we have been working very hard to finish up the final phases of the building project.  I want to thank everyone in the district office and at the school sites for their focus and commitment to organizing and preparing the many tasks that required attention during the summer months. A big thank you to our maintenance staff, who have worked nonstop to clean furniture, bring in supplies, shampoo carpets, and so much more! Our school sites and classrooms have never looked as great as they do this year for the opening of school!


    Every day of the school year we are entrusted with our communities most treasured asset, our children. As educators we are dedicated to the future success of each child. It is our collective goal to ensure that we provide an environment where each child can grow and learn to their fullest potential.


    I would like to thank the community for supporting the children of Pelican Rapids Schools. It is truly my privilege to work with a team of passionate educators who encourage, challenge, support and celebrate each students’ learning. I look forward to an amazing year where we can keep our passion reignited for our students and lifelong learning!


    Stop by, I'd love to give you a tour of our amazing facilities and share the great things that are happening inside of our school system.

Flu Shot Clinic

  • 10/16/2018


    Dear Parents and Guardians:


    Otter Tail County Public Health and the Pelican Rapids School are working together to provide flu clinics in your school.   The key points on the clinic are as follows:


    • All people 6 months and older should be vaccinated yearly with the influenza (flu) vaccine.
    • Influenza (flu) is caused by viruses that infect the lungs, nose, and throat. This is very different from the “stomach flu”.
    • Injectable Vaccine is available for all children at the school clinic, regardless of insurance coverage. MNVFC vaccine will be available for those without vaccine coverage.
    • Flu Mist is back this year! Please make sure to appropriately fill out the screening form if you would like your child to receive the flu mist rather than the injection. If it is not specified, the injection will be given.
    • Easy online screening and consent form to fill out and print. Use this link:
    • Contact your School office or Otter Tail County Public Health for a consent form if unable to do online.
    • A parent/guardian is required to be present for all kids 4th grade and below to receive their vaccination
    • This is a GREAT opportunity to get your family vaccinated.


    You can send the completed form to the school with your child.  The school will collect them for that day or bring with you for the younger children. 


    The vaccine clinic will be done on:

    Tuesday, October 30, 2018, at Pelican Rapids High School, during 2:15-3:15

    Tuesday, October 30, 2018, at Pelican Rapids Elementary, during 3:30-4:15


    Thank you.  We look forward to help keep our children protected with immunizations.
