  • No unescorted Students at Junior High School After School Activities

    I am contacting you today to inform you of one of our district practices regarding evening programs at UCS Junior High Schools.  Normally, students should not attend after-school activities, such as concerts, plays or athletic events, unless they are accompanied by an adult or are participating in the program or event.  Students on the No-Go List will NOT be admitted, even with a parent.

    As a reminder: participation in extracurricular activities, including those above, requires a student to be in attendance at school for one-half of the school day on the day of the event.

    The above verbiage can be found in the section titled Evening Programs at the Junior High Schools on the eleventh page titled “Our K-12 Approach” of the 2023-2024 Utica Community Schools Parent and Student Handbook.

    Students have been informed via school announcements and an email message.

  • Dear Parents:

    We are asking for your help this year in a very important matter. Your child is in a classroom where at least one student has an allergy to peanut and/or tree nut products. For that reason, we have made your student’s room a “peanut/tree nut safe classroom.”

    Our students’ overall health and wellbeing are issues that involve all of us. Peanut products to avoid include peanuts, peanut butter, peanut flour and/or peanut oil. Examples of tree nuts that should be avoided include such things as almonds, cashews, macadamia, pecans and walnuts.

    A student allergy can be so serious that contact with even the smallest amount of a peanut product can cause a severe or even fatal reaction. There are a number of simple things you can do to help us to ensure a successful school year for all of our students:

    • Do not send daily snacks that may contain/were processed on shared equipment with/ or manufactured in the same facility with peanut or tree nut products. Be aware that traces of nuts can be found in unexpected foods. Please check packaged food labels for content ingredients or potential allergens.
    • If there is a classroom activity or celebration for which you are providing a special treat, please be sure to not send foods with peanut or tree nut products.
    • Even though they may be delicious, we also must require that no homemade baked or commercially prepared bakery treats be brought to school.

    This is a learning process for all of us. It is extremely important that all of us respect and adhere to these guidelines. If you have questions at any time about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact me.


    Thomas Yaw, Bemis Junior High School Principal
