  • Pay for school lunch online

    Did you know you could pay for your student's lunch online? You may use your MasterCard, Visa or Discover credit or debit card to make electronic payments onto your student's account. The first step is to set up your user account with PowerSchool (use the link in quick links or one posted below), our student database system. Required access information was provided to you over the summer.

    Once you have established a PowerSchool account that is linked to your student's information, you will be able to access RevTrak, our merchant banking provider. This is our "banking" page. You may, of course, still pay by check or with cash but we hope this saves you valuable time.

    Should you have any additional questions, please call our schools' offices.

  • Future Superintendent Research

    With the pending retirement of Dr. Welch, the Preston Board of Education charged an ad-hoc team to evaluate the pros and cons of going forward with a full-time or part-time superintendent. Attached files present the findings.

    Community members interested in being part of the Superintendent Search may contact Jan Clancy, BoE Chair. Jan, along with the Ad Hoc Committee members, will select one community representative from those who respond.

Operation Warm

 

PVMS PTO would like to ensure that every child is warm through the winter months. How can this happen? It starts with you! Every $20 donated provides a high quality brand new winter coat to a Preston child. Our community has 100 children in need of a coat. This will change their lives.

Visit Preston, CT - Operation Warm, or make a donation at the PVMS office by issuing checks payable to PVMS PTO (memo: Operation Warm). Let's make sure the children in our community are safe and warm during the 2016/2017 winter season.

Welcome to Preston Public Schools!

Enrolling over 400 students, Preston Public Schools comprises Preston Veterans’ Memorial School (PK-5) and Preston Plains Middle School (6-8). Upon completion of the eighth grade program, Preston students have the option of attending Norwich Free Academy (Designated High School), Ledyard High School, Ledyard Agri-Science High School, Grasso Vocational Technical High School, Norwich Vocational-Technical School, New London Science and Technology High School, or Marine Science High School.

As a school district, we are committed throughout our organization to ensuring that children receive an excellent education and enjoy their experience in Preston. Ideal teacher-student ratios in conjunction with a focused academic program accompanied by appropriate support services are designed to guarantee that every child has a successful experience.

We also place a great deal of emphasis on developing a strong school-home partnership. Parents are welcome in our schools and play an active role as evidenced by the presence of parent volunteers and two active parent-teacher organizations. Our efforts always pay dividends and complement our personal commitment to the 4 C’s – communication, coordination, cooperation, and collaboration.

As the district’s superintendent, I am also conscious of the importance of creating goals that guide our efforts. Toward that end, the following goals for the 2016-2017 school year provide a perspective on what we expect to accomplish this year. You may also find the accompanying recapitulation of previous year's goals of interest as well.

In conclusion, I am delighted that you chose to visit our webpage and take a tour. Upon completion of the tour, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information about Preston Public Schools.
