Back To School Fingerprints Have Cleared

21575375403_a21c786ebf_bIf you were a part of the group that took advantage of the fingerprint service at Back To School Night, we are happy to report the fingerprints are back and cleared. In the rare case we needed to do any follow up, you will be contacted directly.  If you would like to learn more about school volunteering opportunities, please visit the volunteer page on our website. Happy Volunteering!

A friendly reminder, if you have received fingerprint clearance through Horizons K-8 there is no need for additional background checks (such as tclogiq) during your family’s tenure at our school. If you want to confirm the status of your background check please contact Denise  in our business office.
