National Dog Day

We at Chadron Primary LOVE our four legged friends and we celebrate National Dog Day today; however, we ask you leave your dogs and other pets at home as you come to drop off children and pick them up after school.  In order to keep all of our children safe we are asking you to keep your animals off campus.  There may be times the classroom and JFK invite you to bring animals; and we thank you for your consideration on this matter.  


A HUGE thank you to United Way of Western Nebraska, Chadrad, and everyone who contributed to the Stuff the Bus campaign!!  Many of our students benefited from your generous support.
