Student Celebration of Learning
A reminder that you are invited to our “Student Celebration of Learning” next week, to give you the opportunity to conference with your children about their learning.  Please feel free to come by the school and visit your child in his/her class for 15 minutes during this time, and see the “learning in action”.

If you are unable to make it during the day, we will also be opening our doors on Monday the 18th from 4:30pm-6:30pm and Tuesday the 19th from 3:30pm-5:30pm.  This will be the same format, so no appointments are necessary and students are required to attend with parents.


Hope to see you then!

Volunteers Needed!

Important Procedural Information for Prescott

Pick Up and Drop Off Entrances into Prescott

Thank you to those parents/guardians who have adjusted their pick up/drop off procedures to respect the 850 students entering and exiting our building in a 10 minutetimeframe at the beginning and end of our school day.  Our hallways are very very busy, with all of our students and staff. Therefore, we are asking for parents’ cooperation in waiting outside our entrances.

Moving forward, please let your child know that all students (unless previously arranged with administration) will be expected to enter and exit through their designated doors. If you are walking your child to school, please walk them to their own door to drop them off. We are asking that our front entrance not be used when dropping off or picking students up, unless you are picking up your child prior to 2:50 pm for an appointment, etc.  It is important that we remain consistent with this to ensure students can enter and exit our building quickly during the busiest times of the day…pick up and drop off.

Office Assistance and Procedures

As you can imagine, the office is an extremely busy place near the end of the day. If you have registration questions or payment inquiries, please plan to do this before 2:45 pm or after 3:15pm. This enables our front office staff to focus on our students at this busy time of day.

Reminder … If you are coming to the office to pick up your child for an appointment etc., please ensure you have allowed a 10 minute window of time for your child to receive the message, pack their bag and come to the office.

Note: Please schedule to pick up your child prior to 2:45 if they have an appointment, etc at the end of the day. We are unable to call students down to the office for pick up between 2:50 pm and 3:00 pm. as our focus is on the dismissal of 850 students.

We truly do appreciate your cooperation and support as we continue to establish procedures at Prescott that ensure the safety and well-being of all students. If you have questions about the above, please contact our office and we will be more than happy to answer.

Tech Free Free February was such a success it has now become Tech Free, March, April, May and June as well!

Although the cold of February was not welcomed by anyone, it did enable our staff to witness all of the great things that happen when kids are truly connecting. From just hanging out and chatting to engaging in competitive games of UNO, Dutch Blitz, Chess and Checkers (to name a few) we believe the value of truly socializing at breaks without the interruptions of technology is important to student growth and development.  Thank you for supporting us as we do what we can to provide our students and your children with every opportunity to grow and develop socially, emotionally and physically. We will continue with Tech Free Breaks, and support technology use for learning.
