Mr. Conley's 9/06 message

Happy New Year and welcome to the 2016-17 School Year! Last week was a fantastic first week of school with the building once again abuzz with the sounds of students and staff working together. This year, our theme is "Unionville High School is World Class." As a school community, we will discuss and examine what it means to be a world class organization, and how we can, ultimately, emulate those characteristics, each day. Our UHS family realizes that your children are more than statistical data points, but kind, hard-working, and dedicated young people.

Please be sure to keep up to date on all high school events by following me on Instagram: mr_conley_uhs on Twitter: @MrConleyUHS (#CatchTheSpirit & #UAreWorldClass), “Liking” The Unionville High School FaceBook page, accessing our website, or reading this monthly E-News. Our goal is to provide parents with multiple means of communication about life at UHS.

Back-to-School Night: September 15

Our annual Back-to-School Night will be held on September 15 at 7:00. Back-to-School Night is a wonderful opportunity to connect families with our staff, and to learn about all of the events taking place in the classroom. We hope that you able able to attend this informative evening.

The Unionville High School Student Disciplinary Policy and Student/Parent Handbook

The Unionville High School Student Disciplinary Policy and Student/Parent Handbook are available on-line via the UHS website.  The Handbook includes important information for both students and parents about the policies and procedures in effect at the high school.  Please take time to review the contents of these publications with your student(s), especially the sections dealing with Bullying, Academic Honesty, and the Dress Code Policy. 

Absence from School

If your child is absent from school, please be sure to call the UHS Main Office to inform us of the absence. *Within THREE days of your child returning to school, we must receive a signed note or parent email to excuse the absence.  If a note or email is not received within three days, your child’s absence will be unexcused.

Early Dismissals for Students

A student who needs an early dismissal on a particular day (for a doctor’s appointment, etc.) must bring a note to the Main Office at the start of the day for which the early dismissal is needed.  *Please remember that we will not phone into a classroom and disturb instruction for an early dismissal. Students may check emails on a cell phone during passing times but may not use a cell phone during the school day to make phone calls.  If he/she needs to make an emergency call, any student may come to the Main Office to access a phone.

September 22: Picture Day

Picture Day will be held next Thursday, September 22 in the UHS Library. Your child was given the picture form in homeroom yesterday morning. If you are ordering pictures, please put payment in the photo envelope and have your child return the envelope on picture day.

Class Dues

Please remember that class dues, which are used to pay for the Senior Dinner Dance and cap & gowns, may be paid in the High School Main Office.  The class dues are:  9th - $30; 10th - $25; 11th - $20; 12th - $15.  

Thank you, and have a wonderful week!
