From the Principal!

Greetings West Utica Families,

I would like to wish everyone a very happy 2019!  I would like to thank our PTO, our volunteers and the many community organizations that have given their time, effort and resources to the West Utica community. Without your help, we would not be able to do many of the wonderful things that make our school a great place for kids. I would also like to encourage all of our parents to get involved with our school community.

 With many cold days in store for us during the next few months, it is important that your child comes 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 concerns, please call or stop by the front office.  Together, we will continue to make West Utica a great place to learn!

 Best Wishes for a great 2019,

Principal Bradley Suggs
