Prairie View opens

Managing Editor

Prairie View Elementary and Middle School in Otsego opened its doors for the 2017-18 school year on Tuesday, Sept. 5, welcoming hundreds of students in grades kindergarten through sixth.

Eventually the school will have early childhood students along with elementary school children as well as sixth through eighth grade middle school students. An addition is already being examined to handle expected enrollment growth in the area.
