From The Principal

Dear  Chieftain Families,


As many of you are aware, and the Superintendent's letter on Friday pointed out, there is a national movement calling for school "walkouts" on March 14 to support efforts to end school violence. In addition to the call for March 14, there are two other anti-school violence days, one on Saturday, March 24, and one on Friday, April 20. As Dr. Johns pointed out, the administration team at Utica High School has asked various student groups about their plans on participating. Currently there are no plans for Utica High School to participate on March 14. Instead, our students are planning a meaningful event on April 20.
