Utica High School families, 

I know a number of students were out for various reasons on Friday. We want to make sure those students have the opportunity to collect their books and other school-related and person items to allow learning at home to continue.  On Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th, we will provide that opportunity.

In doing this, we are also concerned about following CDC and MDHHS regulations and do not want large gatherings of students that would create potentially unsafe conditions. If you missed school due to being ill, and you are still not feeling well, please do not attempt to gather your belongings at this time.  

I have made a schedule based on alpha to allow for pick-up of materials.  Students can enter the building through the main entrance only and promptly retrieve items from their lockers.  Please follow the schedule as we will make students wait outside if we have too many students arriving at one time.  We also expect that students will enter, get their things, and promptly exit.  This is not for social gathering. 

If the items left in the building are not essential, please do not feel the need to come. 

Here is the breakdown by alphabet of times that your student may come to Utica High: 

Monday, March 16 Tuesday, March 17
9 am – 10am A – C 9 am – 10 am P – R
10 am – 11 am D – F 10 am – 11 am S – U
11 am – 12 pm G – I 11 am – 12 pm V – X
12 pm – 1 pm J – L 12 pm – 1 pm Y - Z
1 pm – 2 pm M – O  

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
