Humboldt Unified School District gets ready for classes

There will be plenty of activities going on as the Humboldt Unified School District gets ready for the first day of classes one week from today.  All Bradshaw Mountain Middle School students are asked to stop by the school on Turquoise Circle in Dewey-Humboldt.  The school office is open from 8 to 3 today, Wednesday and Friday.  The office is closed Thursday due to an all-District event.  Students are asked to bring proof of residency.  School fees can be paid and supplies can be purchased, so bring cash or checks.  Glassford Hill Middle School schedule pickup for 8th Graders is 11 am to 12:30 tomorrow.  Seventh grade schedule pickup follows from 1 to 3.  Students should be prepared to pay any fees.  Cash or check only will be accepted.  From 9 to 4 today, area residents can bring backpacks and school supplies to the Prescott Club at Stoneridge off Highway 69.  All donations received during this Fill the Bus event will go to needy families in the Humboldt Unified School District.   

Marina Street is getting a much needed upgrade!

Watch for delays as a road and utility upgrade project gets underway on Marina Street.  City of Prescott officials say improvements include removing and replacing the deteriorated roadway with new asphalt pavement, water and sewer upgrades and new sidewalk, curb and gutter, landscape plantings and installation of historic light fixtures.  The project limits are South Marina Street between East Gurley and East Goodwin Streets.  On street parking will be limited from time to time during the work hours of 7 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday.  No parking signs will be posted at least 24 hours before any restrictions go into place.  This project is scheduled to be completed sometime this fall.
