• “IF YOU WANT TO BE AMAZING, YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR IT”, was one of Mr. Syverson’s favorite sayings.  Viking Elementary is very saddened by the passing of Mr. Syverson on August 18.  Pelican Rapids schools will be remembering Mr. Syverson in many ways this school year.  Please help us keep the entire Syverson family in our thoughts during this difficult time.     

    Viking Elementary would like to welcome the graduating class of 2036 to kindergarten.  This will be an exciting time for these students as they begin the journey of making new friends, learning, laughing, playing, and becoming future leaders.


    The doors at Viking Elementary will open at 8:00am.  If students need to be dropped off before this time, please go to the Club Vikes web page and sign up for Club Vikes.  Club Vikes is open before school at 7:00am and after school closes at 6:00pm.  Students in kindergarten to sixth grade can attend Club Vikes but need to sign up in advance.

    Parents that are dropping off students before school please use the Chauncey Martin parking lot.  No vehicles should enter the drop off lane in front of the school while buses are dropping off students. 

    The school day at Viking Elementary is from 8:15am - 3:05pm.  If your student is sick and will not be attending school, please call Gwen Lass at (218) 863-5910 ext. 5354.  Office hours at Viking Elementary are from 7:30am - 4:00pm.

    Viking Elementary has added some new recess equipment over the summer.  We are looking forward to seeing the equipment being enjoyed by students for many years to come.

    All students have access to FREE breakfast and lunch at Viking Elementary.  We still need families to fill out the Application for Educational Benefits form as our school funding relies on forms being filled out.  Families who fill out a form will receive an activity ticket for each child to receive free admission to all Pelican Rapids home games again this school year.  Milk is available to students during snack time at a cost of $40.00 for the entire school year (grades 1-6). Lunch and Milk fees can be paid online through SchoolPay or in the elementary office.
