Upton Update (Staff Edition)
Week of May 16, 2016
The District is using a new calendar platform. We are moving to Google Calendar. If you click on the calendar you have two options under Upton: Upton Building and Upton Facility.
Upton Building would be all the times of events that are for our school. Most parents will use this calendar. If you rent the facilities (Ex: Boy Scout, Girl Scout, Basketball, etc.) you will want to check the Upton Facility Calendar. This would be set up times for events and outside rentals.
Rentals still follow the same procedure. You will use a building permit. Please make sure your date and time are available on both calendars. It is possible that someone has submitted a permit and it is not on the calendar. If that happens you will be notified. Always make sure your events have been placed on the calendar for rentals. If not, contact Robin Newsome (email@example.com) PRIOR to the event. Please submit the permits well in advance of the event. The permits are turned in at the building and we send them to Mrs. Newsome.
Wednesday, May 18- Math Performance Task
Thursday, May 19- Science
Testing will take place in the morning on these days, so please make sure your students are quiet while in the hallways.
Our State Superintendent, Brian Whiston, has written a letter explaining the M-STEP and changes for this year's test. Please click on the link below to access this letter:
