Weekly News and Notes, 9/6

A few updates from UHS this week:


Opening of School

We had a very positive week with our students this week! Overall, the hiccups with the schedule, getting around the building, and transitioning from class to class seemed to be minor at best. Our meetings with the students have been upbeat and positive, and we have enjoyed seeing our upperclassmen helping out the students who are newer to UHS. Generally speaking, we have challenged our upperclassmen to set a positive tone around the building, and we look forward to their setting that example for the balance of the year.


2019-20 Student Handbook

Our 2019-20 student handbook was approved at the School Committee meeting this week. Parents and students should be aware of the processes and procedures that are outlined in it, and the table of contents at the start of the document gives some quick links within the Handbook to key headers. If you have specific questions about any of the language, please reach out to the school and we will be happy to clarify.


The Handbook can be accessed through the Helpful Documents link on the website, and is also linked here.


Locker Room Cleanout

We directed all students to make sure that materials are taken from the locker room this afternoon for the weekend, as we have some cleaning crews coming in the next couple of days.


Grade 8 Information

Our grade 8 students met today with representatives from Student Council and will be coordinating class elections in the next couple of weeks. Students interested in running for an office (president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, historian) should see Ms. Bernard for nomination papers; elections for the Class of 2024 will take place on September 16-17.


Also, if a grade 8 parent is interested in serving on School Council, please reach out to Mr. Rubin.
