Hello Prescott Community!

I hope everyone has had a great summer so far!  I’m can’t wait to see everyone back on the first day of school.  As you can see from some of the attached pictures, lots of construction has been going on in the building.  While it’s been challenging to work around the construction, in the end, the building is going to look amazing!

Below are lots of reminders so please read this message in its entirety.

·         Last year CPS instituted a mandatory background check for all volunteers.  I encourage ALL parents to submit an application. A background check is mandatory for any individuals working with students, volunteering in classrooms or attending field trips.  Visit and click on “Complete Volunteer Application” and choose Prescott School.  Level 1 volunteers are those who work with student MORE than 10 hours a week, a Level 2 volunteer works with students LESS than 10 hours a week.  Most parents should apply for Level 2 volunteers.

·         School supplies can be dropped off prior to the first day of school between the hours of 9:00-3:00 p.m.
