Concordia Prep School Weekly Update
Weekly Chapel
Concordia Prep weekly school chapel.
Parking Contract
Upper School students who wish to park on campus need to fill out the Parking Contract, which is now available online. A parent or guardian and school principal or designee must sign the permission slip in order for it to be valid. Please list the Year, Make, and Model of all vehicles the student will be bringing onto the CPS Campus.

Return to School Agreement Waiver
Reminder: all parents and guardians must fill out the Return to School Waiver before students are allowed to return to school in-person. 

From The School Nurse
Be on the lookout for an email from the nurse notifying you if your student does not have immunizations or a physical on file. All students, even if they are attending class virtually, are required by the state and county to have documentation of the required vaccines on file with the school. Also all new students are required to have a current physical examination even if they are not playing sports. Any student that wants to participate in school sports must have a current physical on file as well before they can start official practices.

Parent Locker App-Health Screening: There are still a large number of families that have not downloaded the Parent Locker App. Please do this as soon as possible as it will help to greatly reduce the number of staff needed to check in students in the morning. You should complete the screening App everyday even if you are attending classes virtually, but you come to campus after school for sports or drama practice. By completing the App you will help our staff to make the check-in process quicker for everyone. Thank you in advance for your help in keeping our community safe! If you have any questions about the App please contact Ellen Marquardt, school nurse.

Here are some daily reminders from the health suite. Thank you to Jennifer our University of MD student with us this semester. It will also be available in On Campus and on the Concordia Prep website. Have a healthy happy day!

Student Portraits
Student Portraits will be held Monday, November 9th (SAINTS) and Tuesday, November 10th (CONCORDIA). All students, on campus, will have their portrait taken during the day. A link to ordering your portraits will be sent to you soon.
