From the Principal's Office....

Dear Parent and Students,

I am excited to think that we are just a few days away from the start of the 2018-2019 school year.

The Upper Perkiomen School District staff is diligently planning the next phase of the district technology initiative. This upcoming school year all high school students will receive a laptop computer. For 10th through 12th grade students, several steps must be taken to ensure your student continues to receive the benefits of a device in school. As soon as possible, please do the following

Review and complete the UP Learns Agreement for Use in Skyward. Parents can find this form under parent access- online forms in skyward.

Review Acceptable/Responsible Use Policy, Internet Essentials Program Information, Parent/Student FAQ Document and Digital Citizenship Overview found on the district website.

Provide payment for the tech usage fee to the building secretaries in the form of cash, check (payable to Upper Perkiomen School District) or schoolcafe ($50 for UPHS students).

For 9th grade parents and students, a friendly reminder that our 9th grade student orientation program is scheduled for Wednesday, 8/22/18, from 12-3. Students should enter through the gym lobby. It is important for 9th graders to know their Homeroom/X-Period room number. X-Period information along with student schedules will be view-able on Skyward Monday, 8/20/18. Lastly, our first day of school is Monday August 27. All students will begin the day with an administrative homeroom. We are looking forward to an excellent year.

Students, please be reminded to complete your summer reading! For more information, look for summer reading under academics on the UPHS website. The official start date for UPHS students is August 27th. We will start the day at 7:40am with an administrative homeroom. Our doors open at 7:15am. Homeroom assignments and scheduling information will be accessible on Skyward August 20th.

Additional dates to note are as follows: Freshman Student Orientation, 8/22, 12-3, Open House 9/20, and Academic Awards Night 9/26. I look forward to an excellent year. Enjoy the rest of your summer!


Rob Carpenter, Ed.D.
