Weekly News and Notes, January 19

We have a few quick updates from UHS this week:

1. Monday will conclude the first semester. When second semester starts on Tuesday, it will be a day 6 in the rotation.

2. Seniors who have internships or senior privilege second semester are reminded to have all appropriate documentation completed with Mr. Moura or their school counselors. Please do not assume that a senior privilege is approved before having paperwork submitted.

3. Our UHS School Council will be meeting on January 29 to review changes to next year's Program of Studies. 

4. Over the next several weeks, our school leadership will be sharing capital improvement requests and budgetary asks with the School Committee and, eventually, the Town. We have been working diligently to ensure that requests match needs and that nothing is being requested that is outside the scope of furthering our academic mission, supporting equity across all programs, and ensuring safety from an emotional, academic, and physical security standpoint. We are looking only to maintain current programs while considering some investments in key areas, particularly those that are nearing the end of their working life or that are in need of repair and replacement. We are hopeful that these requests will past muster and will communicate more specifics in the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend!
