Patriot families,

We are excited to see our students in person and are committed to providing a safe and active learning environment. Students of families who chose the UCS virtual academy will continue their on-line instruction for the remainder of the school year. As a school and district, the health and safety of our students and staff remain the top priority. We need to work together to make sure that we can meet our goal of continuing in moving forward with increased face-to-face learning. Parents need to follow these safety protocols each morning and, if your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, please keep them home. Working together, we can keep our students in the classroom and avoid any interruptions. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 586-797-3300.
