Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays to all in our Christmas City of Prescott.
The Prescott Schools are up and running! Like all of us, this has been a summer to remember. It was a hot and hard summer, where much of what we knew and relied upon was stalled out; dead on the ground. Getting these systems rolling again was no easy task.
The Prescott Unified School District board will have a special meeting on Tuesday at 5 p.m. to finalize the 2020-21 budget previously approved in April and consider using federal grant dollars to hire two additional district staff to help coordinate return-to-school efforts.
The Prescott Unified School District voted Tuesday night, April 7, to move ahead with issuing $3.5 million in voter-approved bonds.
The Prescott Unified School District Governing Board will have its regular meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 24.
By this time, our Prescott community knows that our area schools are closed due to the large-scale concerns of the COVID-19 virus.
I am very excited about some upcoming events as we continue to focus on ways to get our community onto our school campuses, and specifically into our theaters to celebrate the talents of not only our students, but also our many local and even nationally known performing artists.

Welcome to December, and here’s hoping that you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday.
Last Thursday, nearly 4,000 amazing kids started the 2019-20 school year, the 149th school year for the Prescott Unified School District. It was the smoothest start of my career. With uncommonly experienced principals leading the charge of nearly 250 passionate and caring teachers, there is much to look forward to. To say that we are excited about this school year is an understatement.
The more experience I get in my job and my life, the faster a school year seems to fly by. It is hard to believe, but it is time again to watch our Prescott High School seniors walk across the stage with the backdrop of the sun setting on Thumb Butte.
Many of our Prescott community members saw a few weeks ago that our Prescott High School Student Council brought more than 2000 people to town for the State Student Council Convention.
