From The Principal

Dear Chieftain Families,


Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year.  To our incoming sophomore families, welcome to Utica High, the home of the Chieftains.  Summer is flying by and starting on Monday, Fall Sports begin, and a month later, on September 6, the 2016-17 year begins!  Student back-to-school registration packets were sent out on Thursday, August 4 so you should have received them! 

As the 2016-17 year is just around the corner, I wanted to make sure that you had updated information on registration, on the District Calendar and a few other pieces.  We still have a lot of work to do before the school year starts.  We are finishing up schedules as we add final pieces to our staffing.  We are also taking in new enrollees and are excited that we continue to grow at Utica High.  Though you may have accessibility to your schedule via the PowerSchool app, that schedule will not be finalized and may be completely inaccurate until it is received on your registration day. -MORE-
