Dear Troy Prep Families, 

Two weeks ago, we celebrated the first day of in-person learning at Troy Prep. Today, we are so excited to share another milestone in our comeback as our schools in Newark and Camden opened their doors for a calm, safe, and inspiring “first day” of school this Monday! The reopening of North Star and Camden Prep could not have been accomplished without our Uncommon community – our teachers, staff, leaders, nurses, students, and families made this step forward possible.

We are so thankful to have this community of Uncommon families like you who continue to place their faith and trust in our schools and serve as essential partners in this work. Stay tuned for additional information as we remain incredibly excited to continue to welcome our students for their “first day” across our regions in the weeks to come.

School Updates

Meal Service Updates:

For Remote Only Students:

  • Food service pick-up will continue throughout the school year for all remote only scholars every Friday:
    • Food can be picked up from either location: 2 Polk St Troy, NY 12180 (through the Duke Street Alleyway): from 9 AM - 12 PM or 3055 6th Ave Troy, NY 12180 (on Douw Street): from 12 PM - 3 PM

For Hybrid Students:

  • For all hybrid scholars, on days when scholars are in the building, they will receive breakfast, lunch and snack in person and will receive a set of meals to cover their non-in-person learning day as well.
  • For example:
    • On Monday, they will eat meals in person and will take home meals to cover their food consumption for Tuesday
    • On Wednesday, they will eat meals in person and will take home 2 days worth of meals to cover their food consumption for Thursday and Friday.


Wellness Corner:

As we continue through the month of October, we are learning and identifying ways to practice Intellectual Wellness! While you might know that you need to exercise your body, did you know that it is also important to exercise your mind? One of the best ways to exercise our minds is to learn new things. So, instead of sitting down and watching television at the end of the day, opt for a good book or puzzle! We have provided a few resources to help you and your family grow your brain and practice Intellectual Wellness.

  1. Libby - a free website or app that allows you to borrow and read ebooks and audiobooks from your local public library
  2. Sudoku - free puzzles to sharpen your logic with numbers
  3. Braingle - a free website with over 15,000 brain teasers and puzzles

Election season is in full swing, and it’s more important than ever to make your voice heard at the ballot box! To help support you during this election year, we are excited to offer our Uncommon votes page as a resource! Please use this page to make a voting plan to ensure that your voice is heard!
