Good afternoon Titan Community,
Senior families, as we begin my favorite time of the year, it’s essential that we remind our seniors that they are far from finished. We have a few weeks left in this quarter, which for our seniors is about two weeks of school. They must pass their classes, pass exams, and not lose credits for tardies, absences or poor choices. We have had our Senior Meetings and awards ceremonies and recognitions are happening almost daily. This is a time of year to talk about good choices. A key message I will share is to remember that a split-second decision can cost your child a great deal. In 16 years of graduating seniors, I’ve only had to refuse commencement once. I am incredibly clear about how disciplinary actions toward seniors at this point in the year will impact opportunities; be those prom, honors night and/or commencement. I also remind our seniors that those lost opportunities are not my fault, but theirs. We are all responsible for our choices. I also remind students that choices outside of school matter. As it gets warmer, remind your students that they need to be safe and make positive choices. We want to celebrate success at the end of the year, not mourn losses.
2023-2024 Parking Permits - We will be accepting parking permit applications from next year's seniors (class of 2024) beginning on May 30. The permits can be used to park for the rest of the 2022-23 school year and all of next year. Parking permits are $50. Students who already have a parking permit this year can turn in their old permit for a $5.00 discount on the new permit. You can find the Parking Permit Application on the Stevenson website: Stevenson High School on May 30. Please print it and bring copies of all required documents to Mrs. Bartold in the main office.

Laptop Collection for Seniors
Seniors will turn in their UCS laptops during their English classes. All UCS laptops have a computer name label on the cover in the bottom right corner, i.e., 47-OTO-SL0776
Virtual Students can turn in their laptop on Friday, May 26 from 8:30 a.m. -10:15 a.m..
Seniors can turn in laptops early if they are not required for classes starting on May 22.
*Laptops will be assessed for damages, any fees related to damage are due prior to receiving your Graduation tickets. Seniors can see Mrs. Patalon in the Media Center to check for damages at any time. If you know of a current problem or if there is damage to your laptop, please see Mrs. Patalon immediately.
If the Laptop Computer Name starts with 47, 65, or 94, Seniors return laptop to Stevenson.
If the Laptop Computer Name starts with 44, Seniors return laptop to IRC.
To make this process easier and less time consuming (on their last day) we will be collecting the SENIOR laptops after they take their English exams on Thursday 5/25 and Friday 5/26. (As long as they do not need it for another exam)
Please be sure Senior students do the following BEFORE sending them to the Media Center:
- Ask if the students will need laptops for another exam (if they do, obviously, we cannot collect them).
- Make sure the laptops are ON and they have their charging cord wrapped up before they go to the Media Center. This will speed the process up.
- Have students remove ALL PERSONAL stickers from laptop without damaging device or they will be charged.
Any other questions or concerns, please have your student send a Teams message Lisa Patalon or see her in the Media Center.
When students return AP textbooks, return them inside the Media Center. They are too large for the book return slots outside the Media Center. There will be a sign on the counter where they can stack the textbooks to be returned.
Graduation Ticket Information
Seniors will receive their Graduation Tickets AFTER they provide the signed Acknowledgement of Senior Meeting form, turn in their UCS laptop, and pay all outstanding fees, including any assessed damaged laptop fees.
Do not lose your tickets, there are NO extras.
If Commencement tickets are not picked up before Tuesday, June 6 at 3:00, they will be forfeited and redistributed to those in need.
Outstanding fees must be paid immediately. You will not receive your graduation tickets until all fees are paid. Statements were emailed to parents and put in your graduation packet at the Senior Parent Meeting. You can also check Powerschool.

Every student must wear their ID at all times while on school grounds. A student’s ID card authorizes him/her to be on the school campus. It is crucial that the school staff can identify everyone on campus. The identification of staff and students is a safety issue and will not be compromised. Student IDs may be left in the student’s assigned locker overnight to ensure the student ID is not left at home. Please see page 1 in the UCS student handbook for more information.
Another important reminder is to take time with your student to review the UCS High School Credit Review Rules and Procedures. In short, it starts by saying that a student has a responsibility to attend, be on time and prepared for each scheduled class. When a student nears or is at 10 absences (any combination of absences or tardies) they will meet with their Associate Principal and parents will be notified. At 11 absences the student will enter Credit Review and can restore those credits by making up the lost time for the classes via a contract made with their associate principal. This cannot be recovered short of testing out, taking the class via scheduling, credit recovery or summer school. Please take the time to read and discuss this with your students, and make sure they understand.
Please be familiar with the UCS dress code. You can find the dress code on page 26 of the student handbook.
With Titan Pride,
Kenneth L. Cucchi III
