Hello Chieftain families, 

Utica High will remain open during the summer, but open is clearly different than it once was.  While I will be in most days, summer hours are impacted vacation schedules and other needs for social distancing make this summer different.  Please Email me or my administrative assistant Mrs. Jablonowski to set up an appointment before you come to the building.  Many students need to drop-off and collect items because they weren’t available during our drop-off/pick-up dates the last few weeks.  Please Email Mrs. Jablonowski and she’ll work with you to find a time when the building is open.  She will be reaching out to seniors who could not receive diplomas last weekend next week to arrange pick-up times. 

As we head into the summer we reflect on what we’ve learned this year. We have become keenly aware of strengths we did not know we possessed and weaknesses that we had not fathomed prior to this pandemic.  As people, as educators, as community members, we had to learn to come together and support one another in unprecedented ways.  I will reiterate what I said yesterday.  I remain ever-grateful to be a part of this community.  I thank you. 

Have a great summer!
