Congratulations, Mrs. Dorogi!

Mrs. Dorogi was named our Teacher of the Year for Upton Elementary this year! Besides being an excellent teacher, Mrs. Dorogi has been a leader in organizing activities for our Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) Committee which includes ROCK Stars and our ROCK Band program. Congratulations!

Mid-Winter Break

There will be no school on Monday, February 15 & Tuesday, February 16!

Students who are Sick

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!

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.
