From the Principal!

Greetings West Utica Families,

Beginning February 19th we will be off of school for Mid-Winter break.  Mid-Winter break will last until February 23rd and classes will resume on February 26th.  Enjoy your break!

UCS Community Education will host its Early Childhood Open House on February 15, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. For more information, please see link.

With many cold days in store for us during the next few months, it is important that your child come to school dressed for the weather.  We will be going outside every day that is above 10 degrees, including the wind chill.  You child will need to bring a coat to school as hoodies do not keep you warm in 10 degree weather. 

School begins at 9:00 a.m.  We begin our breakfast program at 8:30 a.m.  At 8:30 a.m. our doors are open for students to enter the building.  We do not have supervision before 8:30 a.m.  Please do not drop you child off at school before 8:30 a.m.  The same is true with students that are walking to school.   Walkers need to adjust the time they leave their house so that they arrive at school after 8:30 a.m.   In the bitter cold, the kind we experience in the Michigan winter, children can easily get frostbite.  A child being dropped off and having to wait outside is in danger.  If you must drop off your child before 8:30 a.m. you must utilize our School Age Child Care services.  For information about our School Age Child Care services please call our front office and we will be happy to help you.

If you have any questions or concern please call our stop by the front office.  Together we will continue to make West Utica a great place to learn!

Thank you,

Principal Bradley Suggs
