Rochester Prep Family Champions Facebook Group:
We have launched a group on Facebook just for you. We will still maintain our public Facebook page and we encourage you to “like” it if you haven’t already. We will continue to post items about our school that are of interest to the general public. Our parents’ group is private and only open to parents. It will provide timely and accurate information specifically for Rochester Prep parents, such as announcements about school re-openings, COVID-19 testing availability and upcoming Family Champion meetings. As we continue to deal with the pandemic, it’s important for us to share information with you in as many ways as possible. We encourage you to join the group so that you can stay informed.
After you click on the link, you will be taken to a page on Facebook where you can request to join the group. You will be asked one question: whether you are a parent of a Rochester Prep student. Once you answer that, we’ll get notified and let you into the group.
Looking forward to seeing you on Facebook.

Help make sure NY schools are funded!
New York's public schools have faced unprecedented challenges this past school year, including increased costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Cuomo has identified the need for $15 billion in federal aid in order to avoid cuts to education funding.
