September 2020

 Dear Parents/Guardians:

          August has been a focused month of learning. Wednesday, September 1, is mid-trimester for the first trimester of school. It is amazing to think we have accomplished six weeks of instruction. Mid-trimester reports will be mailed home on Thursday, September 10.

A huge thank you to Prescott Salvation Army, Red Cross, and Yavapai County Food Bank in Prescott Valley for amazing backpacks filled with donated school supplies and delivered for each student! We also received new first aid kits for every classroom. Also, another big thank you to Mary Hovus with Senior Commodities for cereal boxes donated to families in need and the Congress Library for a donation of books.

          The Congress Elementary School Board passed a temporary dress code for hybrid-online learning. The previous dress code is suspended while distance learning is in place or until the School Board changes the policy back to the previous dress code. A reminder that the distance learning plan, mitigation plan for spread of COVID-19, and on-site support services plan are posted on the school website at

As part of #MaskUpAZ campaign to help slow the spread of coronavirus, the state is giving students, school employees and other vulnerable populations five reusable cloth masks for free. Order masks at ( the Arizona Department of Health Services website. The masks will be mailed to you within one to two weeks.  The masks are made by Hanes and are plain white with no logos or prints.  For more information, including a list of frequently asked questions, visit the Arizona Department of Health Services website,
