From the PrincipalJared McEvoy 

The 2020-2021 school year is upon us. We are so very excited to welcome back our students, albeit it remotely at this time.  It is going to be a great year.  Maybe not the most traditional of school years, but that's the great thing about traditions...you can build new ones!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 

Links for student training can be found on the UCS website "UCS Tech" page.  The site will be constantly updated. 

For information about the UCS Virtual Academy and FAQ information - Visit the district's "Return to School" web page

We look forward to working with you with remote instruction.  Our teachers are committed to delivering quality education to our students and making the connections that make the difference in your child’s learning.

You can expect frequent communications from us for the 2020-21 school year. Here is some information that I would like to share with you at this time:

  • While we are in the office, we are limiting visitors to those who have a direct reason to visit the school. Please call or email our office for an appointment. You will be asked to do a pre-screening, wear a face mask, use hand sanitizer located inside our door and observe social distancing. While building access is being limited, please know that we are always happy to talk with you and answer your questions over the phone or via email. Our office number is 586-797-1300.
  • Secondary students will follow a block schedule when we open remotely and will remain in a block schedule as we move to in-person learning. Instead of having all six classes for one hour every day, students will have three classes for two hours each day. This will help students with focus and managing work. On the A day, students would take what we normally called 1st, 2nd, and 3rd hour. On the B day, students will take what we normally call 4th, 5th, and 6th hour. You can see a graphic representation of what this will look like at this website.

Both our school and district will be communicating with you as the school year progresses. There is already a great deal of information on the UCS Website at this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office at 586-797-1300. 

GO EAGLES!

Jared A. McEvoy, Principal
