Greetings UAS Families

The 2023-2024 school year is right around the corner! Here is some information to help prepare you for the new school year. 

Open house will be in person from 4 to 8 on August 30th for all families Prek-12. That evening we will also have 7th grade and 7-12 new student orientation at 6pm in the auditorium. You should have received a letter with information regarding orientation. If you have not and are a new student or are a current student going into 7th grade, please contact the main office. I hope to see everyone on the 30th!

The school day will be from 8:15 to 3:12. All students 7-12 will be dismissed at 3:12 and Prek-6 will stagger their dismissal as they have in the past.  

We will be offering before and after school care for school aged children in grades Prek-6. If you are interested in having your child enrolled in Cardinal Club, please contact the main office.  

This year, lunches will be free of charge for all students! We are asking all families to fill out the educational benefits form. The state is still using this information as part of their funding formula. 

Breakfast will continue to be free for students.

If you have any transportation changes for the upcoming school year, please notify the office as soon as possible so our drivers can get their routes sorted out.  

We have some new staff this year!

  • Avery Jackson-1st Grade

  • Madalin Koetter-Paraprofessional 

  • Jessica Johnson-Spanish Long Term Sub

  • Brooke Schliecher-Behavioral Interventionist

  • Kerry Osberg-Art

Please welcome them to the district! 

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer!
