Update on School Opening

Main Prep Families,

As many of you may have heard, there was a fire in our building back in July. We have been working diligently to repair the damage so we could open on time and without issue.

As of yesterday, the building inspector had already given a verbal approval for a partial occupancy. The final step of approval was the fire inspection—which took place today—to determine whether they would sign off on occupancy as well. 

The fire marshall recommended a delayed opening on Tuesday, September 6th and approved the building for occupancy starting that day. The safety of our students and staff is our main priority, so we agree with the fire marshall. School will resume for the 2016–2017 school year on Tuesday, September 6th.

We want to emphasize that this should not affect our school year in any way other than that our Main Prep students get two extra days of summer break this year! The remainder of the year will proceed as scheduled and expected. 

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday!

School Uniforms

We are so pleased that you have chosen Main Preparatory for your child's educational needs. As a member of the Main Prep family we have all students wear uniforms. We feel that uniforms are a great way to show school pride and prevents bullying. Below are the Main Prep uniform requirements:


Dress Code: Students must be in uniform every day unless students earn dress down privleges.


Father- Daughter Dance

Main Preparatory Academy hosted their First Annual Father-Daughter Dance on Friday, February 12. The dance was a huge success. Fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, brothers, and other male role models came out and danced the night away with their special young ladies. They enjoyed tunes by DJ Jordan, light refreshments, and photographs courtesy of our Main Street PTO. Thank you to everyone that came out to support their young lady.
