UHMS Principal's Update

School Closure Week of 3/16/2020

Dear Families,

We know that this is a confusing and difficult time for many students and families. We plan to continue to communicate with you as we receive updates throughout this time. Please also follow us on social media (Facebook and Instagram) as we can often post updates more quickly on those platforms. Administration continues to work at this time, and will be available answering phones and returning medication to families who need to pick them up.

As of yesterday, the county ordered all schools to remain closed through April 30. As we receive additional information on what this means for your students, we will ensure we pass it along via social media, email, and phone dialers.

We will continue to serve meals on site throughout the next several weeks. Effective Thursday, March 19, both breakfast and lunch will be served at the same time between 10:00 and 12:00 a.m.This will allow students to pick up breakfast for the following day when they pick up their lunch and prevent them from having to leave the house twice. You can access meals at your closest school site, even if that is not where your student attends. However, over our scheduled spring break (3/23-27), meals will only be served at middle schools.

If you are looking for work to keep your student learning while we are away from school, we have a few suggestions. First, please have your student check Aeries and work on any missing assignments. All students should be familiar with how to access teacher webpages and Google Classrooms where they should be able to locate most assignments. Next, students can work on any optional assignments their own teachers have posted on their webpages. Some of our teachers have created a site with additional activities as well. That site will be linked below. Finally, the district is providing optional work packets on www.riversideunified.org as well as for pick up at school sites starting 3/18/20.

If you have any questions, you can call either our school site or the district office and we will do our best to assist you. If there is anything you think the school can assist with, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Medication Pick Up

If your student has medication on campus and you need to pick it up while we are out of school, please stop by between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. to do so. It must be a parent or guardian of the student and you will need a valid ID.
