Dear Patriot Families,

Utica Community Schools Spring Break is April 6th through April 10th and resuming on Monday, April 13th with online learning. During Spring Break, our food distribution schedule will be readjusted for the holiday. Food distribution will occur on Monday and Thursday only.  Three meals will be distributed on Monday, April 6 and four meals on Thursday, April 9 for students. These are the only days that the food sites will be open. Please note, this change is in effect for the week of April 6 only. Thanks to the hard work of our food service staff and volunteers, Utica Community Schools has provided nearly 120,000 meals to students. For more information, please visit

I hope you and your family maintain good health and stay safe during this uncertain time. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions, comments or concerns.

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
