Optional COVID-19 Testing is available through USD 382, testing is limited and you must meet one of the following criteria to be considered for testing.
With the number of student cases continuing to surge, we will have students mask at LMS and PHS for an increased level of mitigation. Our staff numbers leveled after we had all staff mask, but our student numbers continued to rise and we felt we were seeing some MS and HS student cases likely resulting from student-to-student contact.
We also consulted with Pratt Regional Medical Center and they reported being at a critical staffing status and seeing the same status with the larger urban hospitals. High Covid numbers not only impact those individuals who become hospitalized for Covid, but it can impact the healthcare resources available for other medical needs. Presently, this is a concern for our community.
With data showing 5-7 days of lag between a positive case and exposure, I believe we will not see the curve shift down for at least a week. We will continue to monitor the case numbers and review our masking protocol. We will downgrade our masking protocol and zone when the numbers indicate it is safe to do so for our community.
When parents are vigilant and keeping children home from school when they show symptoms, we are better protected and keep kids in school at a far better rate overall. That and masking will benefit our students in the short run until we move past this surge.
In tough times that require personal sacrifice, I always think of the generation that lived through the Great Depression and fought World War II—both the home front sacrifices and at the front. They didn’t ask to face those two challenges, they just did it. Our students have told us they are ready to do what is needed to support each other and the community. They make me proud.
We will continue to work with our local healthcare professionals with the objective to keep our schools open and our students moving forward safely. We appreciate your support.
Pratt Schools USD 382
Here are the steps to enroll your child(ren) at USD 382:
1. HOUSEHOLD ECONOMIC SURVEY (optional but recommended)
Even though all children will be able to eat FREE during the 2021-22 school year, the Household Economic Survey (HES) generates additional funding for our local educational programs. We encourage all families to consider, review, and complete the HES application. Eligibility determination will be made according to the established guidelines, and if your family qualifies, the district will still receive the funds accordingly. A few additional reasons for this consideration include:
You may also apply using paper forms available at the district office or at each school building in the district.

We are excited to announce that USD 382 is starting a Greenback Hall of Fame. The Pratt Greenback HOF Class of 2021 will be inducted next fall in late September. The Greenback Hall of Fame will recognize and honor individuals, alumni and contributors who have made a significant contribution to the Greenback traditions of GRIT, TEAM, VALOR, RESPECT and PASSION. Individuals recognized will have exemplified the character, ideals, outstanding skills and commitment of excellence promoted by USD 382. The establishment of the Hall of Fame is an opportunity to honor our past and to give our youth a motivating influence for the future. The Greenback Hall of Fame is not just about an individual's success in high school, but more importantly what has been their positive contributions since high school, not just to Pratt but the world in which we live.
Greenbacks have the opportunity to nominate individuals in three different categories.
Alumni - The nominee must have exemplified, during and following his/her career, outstanding skills, character and a commitment of excellence. Alumni can be nominated 20 years after their graduation date. The alumni’s professional and personal life after high school will be a vital part of the consideration.

On behalf of our teachers, staff, and school board I welcome you to our district webpage. We are proud of the important work we do with kids to set them up for success and personal well-being this day, this year, and in their future.
We are small-town schools where strong relationships are an integral part of what we do—our principals know every student. Our high school students pair with elementary students (Greenback Match), providing positive leadership and building connections within our student family. Elementary and middle school students hold daily “family” meetings to foster our sense of teamwork and togetherness. Developing our students’ social-emotional strengths is an important goal because we recognize its connection to personal well-being and success both now and in the future.
Because of our size, we are still able to provide a wide variety of opportunities for our students. We have first-class arts programs (band, vocal, theater, debate, forensics, and art), a model elementary MTSS program, an enrichment program for all students, multiple career pathways with instructors in the specialties, and internship and apprenticeship programs. With our connection to Pratt Community College, our college-bound students often leave with 15-30 hours or more of college credit.
In athletics and activities, we compete at a high level—4A for most activities (3A in football). This level allows our entire student body to participate and be successful in multiple activities if they are willing to commit and work hard. But, make no mistake, you must compete with grit to be successful at our level. We have Greenback alumni on scholarship at D1 and D2 programs as well as smaller colleges, community colleges, and technical schools—both for athletics and academics. Regardless of the educational path they choose to take when they leave us, we are proud of our Greenback graduates who are positive contributors to our community and others.
We are small schools with big opportunities. We are a Greenback family. If you would like a tour, please feel free to contact our principals or myself.
