Weekly News and Notes


There are not many updates from UHS this week as we head into the April break.

Transcript Requests

If students need to request a transcript as proof of residence for their road test/driver's license, please sign up in the guidance office and do not wait until the last minute. Please allow for 24 hours to process.

Building Access During Break

While there will be someone in the main office at times this week, and there will be athletic events occurring, please note that the building is, generally, off limits during break and after school hours. We will have some cleaning of floors happening, and that may mean that some corridors are not accessible.

Beyond that, we hope everyone has a relaxing break and that the students and staff recharge their batteries for the final stretch of the school year!

Non-emergency lockdown at UHS

Good morning,

Earlier this morning, we had a non-emergency lockdown at UHS. The lockdown was called due to a medical situation, during which classtime instruction continued and there was little impact to the rest of the day at UHS.

We appreciate everyone's cooperation and understanding. Have a great week!

Weekly News and Notes

Good afternoon,

Happy January, er, April! At some point, we may actually get some spring weather and be able to report on the start of the spring sports season, but, right now, it's been challenging! Hopefully we get things to clear up and dry up soon.

Some updates:

End of Day Pickup

Please avoid lining up at the front of the building. There should be no cars in the faculty/student lot, nor should families be parked/idle in the parking lot in the front of the building. For example, today, because cars were lined up around the corner and up alongside the football field, there was no way for an emergency vehicle to access the building. Please turn at the first driveway, and park either on the driveway at the middle or in the student parking lot if you are picking up at the end of the day.

Senior Exams

Senior exams will coincide with MCAS, the week of May 21. With May 25 a tentative half-day for UHS, the senior exam schedule will conclude on May 24. The full schedule can be viewed here.

Vertical Concert and Art Show

Thanks to everyone who attended the art show and vertical concert on Wednesday evening! We had an amazing show of talent, from the artists, sculptors, painters, drawers, and photographers, not to mention another terrific showcase of our musical program from grade 6 all the way to grade 12. Many thanks to Ms. Struppa, Ms. Munley, Mr. Barros, and Ms. Penza from UHS and Ms. Williams and Mr. Hicks from MMS for their contributions!

Have a great weekend!

Cradles to Crayons

What: Cradles to Crayons is an organization that provides donated clothes to children in need. They make it simple for you to do something kind in your community! So please donate new or gently used children’s clothes today!

When: March 27- April 7

Where: Donation bins are located in Whitin Elementary School, McCloskey Middle School, and Uxbridge High School

Why: Although economy may be improving since the Great Recession, millions of Americans are still struggling to get by due to underemployment, stagnant wages, and higher cost of living.  More than 305,000 Massachusetts children, 12 years old and younger, live in low-income or poverty-stricken households. In any given year, more than 100,000 of them will experience homelessness. Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

PSG: Photo Request

REMINDER!! Pictures Needed!
2018 Parents and Guardians,

Parents for Safe Graduation is going to put together a video picture montage of our kids' UHS memories. The video will be shown at the Safe Graduation event and each 2018 graduate will get their own copy as a keepsake.

We hope to include AT LEAST one picture of every 2018 student. For that to happen we need PICTURES! We have received very few pictures so far. In order to put together a video that features as many (if not all) 2018 students, we need many more pictures sent in.
Some ideas of pictures to share with us:

Candids; Pre-Dance pictures; sporting events; school activities; Band; Drama; ski club; Student council events; Toys for Tots event; pep rally’s; prom pictures; Ring ceremony; groups of friends; Academic awards; Parties; group and individual pictures etc.

Pictures can be submitted from parents/guardians or from the kids. Feel free to send as many pictures as you’d like. We will include as many as we can but can’t guarantee that all pictures you send us will be used.

Since an 8th grade slide show was done, this slideshow will just be UHS timeframe memories.

DEADLINE for providing pictures is MAY 7

Email digital pictures or scanned photos to
