From The Principal

Dear Falcon Families,

As I am sure you are aware, an emergency order was issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The order suspended both athletics and extra-curricular activities for 9-12 grade students. As a result, these school activities are on hold at the present time.

We recently implemented our Student Support Time (SST) built into the schedule to provide students’ time to request one-on-one support with teachers, counselors or administrators.  Students can message their teachers via TEAMs, Schoology, or email to set those appointments.  This is an excellent opportunity for students to ask questions, get caught up or get some small group or individual support.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Well-Being Program
UCS is committed to supporting the social emotional needs of our students, staff and community.  This program is for all stakeholders within the community with a number of initiatives beginning in November. Now available on the District website is a multitude of resources available to families.  These resources can be accessed at:

Have a wonderful day!


Go Falcons!
