During its regular meeting Monday evening, the Prairie du Chien School Board voted to keep Lonnie Achenbach as president, Nick Gilberts as vice president, Cassie Hubanks as clerk and Lynn O’Kane as treasurer. 

The board also thanked the many employees who have continued to work through the COVID-19 shutdown to provide meals to students in the school district. Deliveries are being made through the Grab-n-Go program and the Pick-a-Pack program. There are 1,000 meals per day being delivered to 500 students. Members of the school board expressed the need to continue with these programs throughout the summer.

There have been numerous donations to the Grab-n-Go and Pick-a-Pack programs. 3M Company donated more than 100 reusable ice packs and face masks for the delivery people. Walmart donated 31, 18-gallon plastic totes for distribution of meals. Prairie Community Action donated bread and buns, as well as many food and beverage items for both programs. Hardees has donated thousands of bags for Grab-n-Go. Marine Credit Union made a cash donation for Grab-n-Go. Trina Skime and the Girl Scouts of Prairie du Chien donated a Girl Scout cookie for each lunch. Subway donated 12 dozen eggs for the school lunch program. Pick-a-Pack donations were made by Joe and Sharon Atkins, Prairie du Chien Eagles Auxiliary No. 1502, Mary Gasser, Sue and Layne David, and Steve and Judy Sagedahl.
