Morning Drop-Off *Important*
Morning Drop-Off Starts at 9:00am
We have made arrangements with staff for coverage to start at 9:00am. Please honor this agreement.
It was a great week welcoming everyone back into our building for our Open House/Curriculum Night. Our staff enjoyed getting to share information about your child(ren)'s year! We know that this year will be full of learning and growth!
PowerSchool Forms- Thank you to everyone that has gone into PowerSchool and completed all the necessary forms for the school year. If you have not done so, please log in to your PowerSchool Account and click on REQUIRED TO COMPLETE EACH YEAR. One of the checks we have to complete each year is the review of the Elementary Handbook. I have included that document below.
When entering Crissman...
Elementary Handbook Reminder to 5th and 6th Grade
Taken from the Handbook: A student’s right to a public education carries with it a responsibility to know and observe school rules. These rules help minimize distractions that disrupt learning and help to maintain a safe learning environment.
The handbook is below for reference.
Personal Device Agreement per the UCS Elementary Handbook
Students may carry ECDs during the school day, but they cannot be displayed or used without permission from a teacher or administrator for educational purposes.
Personal use of the device shall be limited to the time before and after the school day and only when students are outside the building.
ECDs shall not be used during instructional time, lunch, passing time between classes or on any school bus without permission of a school official.
The use of an ECD’s picture-taking or internet connection capability is not permitted without permission of a teacher or administrator.
Utica Community Schools will not be responsible for the theft, loss or damage of any ECD.
Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against students who violate the policy regulating ECDs.
Translated: Personal communication devices such as cell phones, smart watches, electronic games with capability of communication are not to be used on a UCS school bus, in Crissman, or on Crissman grounds during the hours of 9:20 am-4:10pm.
If you choose to send to school, the device should be kept in a backpack during school hours unless there is a specific, medical need to have the device, which would be documented by a medial plan, signed by a doctor.
We Need You!
Crissman would love for you to join our team and be a lunch supervisor! The hours are from 12:00 pm-1:15 pm. We are flexible with days and provide lots of smiles and hugs.
Lunch Monitors are an important part of safety, service, and supervision of students during eating and recess times. We will work with your schedule to fill our daily allocation of positions. Click below on the Edu Staff button to apply.
2022-2023 UCS EMPLOYMENT
Below is a link to the Utica Community Schools employment page. Our district is still looking to fill many employment positions throughout the district. At Crissman, we are in need of Paraprofessionals for our AIM program and we also NEED LUNCH SUPERVISORS.

please call Mindi in our front office at 586-797-4300.
As a whole, we are still in need of bus drivers, as there is still a national shortage.
