gun locks available

Keeping our schools and community safe is always on our minds in PUSD and across the country. We are excited to share about a donation from Davidson's, Ruger and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. These companies have donated gun locks to the local school districts.

These are available to any PUSD parent. Parents can stop into the principal's office to receive a free lock. Additionally, they will be available at the District Office reception desk at 300 E. Gurley Street during office hours.

Thank you Davidson's, Ruger, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation for helping to keep our schools safe!

parking permits and expectations

Parking permits can be purchased for $90 in the PHS Bookstore. Students must also present their vehicle registration, proof of insurance, and sign the parking agreement.

Students, with permits, can park on the PHS campus. The $90 fee for that permit works out to 50 cents per school day. This is much less expensive than a parking ticket or towing fee.

Please remember that it is illegal to park on private property around the school. Students who park illegally on the street, in the doctor's office across the street, or who park without a permit at the churches across the street from the tennis courts may have their vehicles towed.

NOTE: PUSD has partnered with the Prescott Police Department to promote safety on the roadways. Please refer to the FLYER that provides guidance on keeping everyone safe.

The Launch Pad is a community organization that provides programming that is culturally relevant to teens in Yavapai County. Through this partnership, students are eligible to receive tutoring when needed and participate in programs of their interest.

In addition to tutoring, students can take advantage of the mentoring program. This program gives students an opportunity to set goals and receive support as they seek to achieve success.

Shuttle service is available.
