From the Principal's Desk


Happy end of the 2023-2024 school year!  It’s been another great year here at Upsala Schools. As we put the school year behind us, we are already making plans for the 2024-2025 school year.

One of the biggest changes next year is late starts. For the 2024-2025 school year, every third Wednesday of the month will be a 2 hour late start. The school day will begin at 10:15am instead of 8:15am. With all the new mandates passed by the Minnesota Legislature, we need to find time to get staff trained. We felt this would be the best way to achieve this goal without interrupting learning to the least degree possible. For those who need daycare, we will have drop in spots available for our wrap around daycare Cardinal Club starting at 6:45am. If you need this care, please contact Gina in the main office for details. 

Some dates to get into your calendars for late summer/early fall:

August 5th-All Sports Meeting in the Auditorium 7pm
August 12th-15th Kinder Camp (for all incoming kindergarteners)
August 12th-Fall Sports and Activities begin
August 28th-Open House and 7th Grade Orientation
September 3rd-First Day of School

With the 2023-2024 school year in the rearview mirror, we are looking forward to the 2024-2025 school year. Please stay tuned for the fall newsletter coming out in August where I will have more details on the upcoming school year!

Have a great summer!
