There are no scheduled Late Starts for the month of January. School will start at the regular time every day, 8:25 a.m.

PTA Meeting

This Monday, there is a PTA Meeting scheduled in the Media Center at 7:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend. You can bring your children with you.

5th Grade Cultural Arts Assembly

On Wednesday, Royal Oak Middle School will send representatives to Upton for an assembly at 1:30 p.m. The students will have an opportunity to learn about the instruments that will be available for them to play if they choose to be members of the band or orchestra as one of their classes.

Sick Children

Just a reminder that children who are sick should remain at home. Students should be fever and symptom free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This will help to keep any illnesses from spreading to others. Don't forget to call the office and report any absences!

Kindergarten Welcome

If you have an incoming Kindergarten student or know of any families that do, our Kindergarten Welcome Night is on Thursday, January 14, from 6:30-7:30 p.m in the gym. Our staff will be providing important information to help families prepare for starting school and share the Kindergarten curriculum.

Prepare for Cold Weather

Please make sure your children have winter coats, gloves, hats, and boots at school to prepare them for the cold weather that is expected this week. Snow pants are also recommended as students love to play in the snow during lunch recess.
