January 15 Update
Latest News from across UCS

An email was sent out earlier today to all AM students and to all PM students to remind you of your in person schedule that will begin next Tuesday, January 19. As stated before, we do not have flexibility to switch AM/PM sections as our numbers are balanced to allow for social distancing in the classroom.


I've included a bus list of routes and stop locations in this newsletter. Transportation recommends that students be at their bus stop 30 minutes prior to the start of their school day. The drivers will adjust their arrival times and update parents once we get a day or two completed and they can time the route with student drop off and pick up.


The bus video that was shared earlier this week has generated some questions from parents. When we were in person learning hybrid earlier this year, our bus drivers did a great job keeping students separated and distanced from each other. Students from the same family (siblings) can sit together on a seat. Others are spaced out throughout the bus. The drivers were also reminding students to use the sanitizer station on the bus when leaving the bus and boarding the bus each time. The drivers also stop to clean the bus in between the AM drop off and the PM pick up times. If you have further questions on transportation, please call 586-797-7100.


Many parents have also been asking about the possibility of a picture day this year. I have good news! Picture Day is scheduled for March 9! Kaiser Studios has COVID protocols in place for cleaning equipment in between students and a schedule to allow one classroom at a time to get pictures then leave without crossing paths with another classroom. They will run AM and PM sessions and host a late afternoon session in the Science room for our Morgan VA students to come and get their picture taken. The VA picture times will be 3:30 - 5:00 on March 9. The picture order form is below for you to download. You can also order online. More details will come as we approach the picture date.


We will also have a yearbook this year, which will come late spring/end of the year. Orders for yearbook will come out after Spring Break. VA students will be in the yearbook as well.


Don't forget that Monday, January 18, there is no school for UCS students as teachers engage in online professional development for the day. This is also Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The next day, Tuesday, January 19, students will return to in person learning in the AM/PM hybrid schedule.

Have a good week

Mrs. Lasky
