Hello Utica High families, 

I’m sure many of you watched the UCS Board of Education meeting last night with anticipation.  As your student’s Principal, I am honored with the task of taking that vision and implementing it with the same focus on opportunities for student social-emotional and academic growth that have been hallmarks of excellence at Utica High School.  I confidently accept this task because I’m collaborating with my incredible team of educators, support staff and administrators.  We have been working hard, planning through the summer, and we are ready to work with our students and our community to have a successful 2020-21 school year. 

We look forward to working with you as we begin the new year with remote instruction.  Our teachers are committed to delivering quality education to our students and making the connections that make the difference in your child’s learning. If you choose to remain at Utica High School in remote learning, you do not need to do anything. Your student’s schedule is already being built and teachers will remain the same through the semester, even if we transition back to in-person learning. If you choose to go into the Utica Community Schools Virtual Academy for the 1st semester, that choice must be made by Friday, August 14 by following the instructions here.
