Student Drop Off/Pick Up

For safety’s sake, please use the following guidelines if you drive your child to school in the morning or pick up your child after school. Students dropped off in the morning must be dropped off at the main school entrance on Jefferson Street. Students may be dropped off between 7:20 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. Please do not drop off your child in back of the school; this area is only to be used for school bus unloading. Please note: No student should be dropped off at school or walk to school before 7:20 a.m. The main entrance doors are not unlocked until 7:20 am and supervision is not available until 7:20 am.

Any student being picked up after school should be picked up on Jefferson Street near the corner of Fifth Street or Sixth Street. Please do not park across from the main school entrance on Jefferson Street and expect your child to walk across the street at this busy time of day. It is much safer for the students to walk to the corners to be picked up by a parent.

Summer Reading

The Middle School English Language Arts teachers have prepared our Summer Reading packets and they are attached below for each grade level. Reading is a lifelong skill and research shows that adult readers establish their reading habits most strongly during their middle school years. Summer reading is a crucial component of the ELA curriculum and helps children maintain the progress they made during the school year. Please read over the packets attached below based upon the grade your child will be enrolled in for the 17/18 school year. If you have any questions, please ask your child's current ELA teacher or contact the UPMS Office. Happy Reading!
