This year, we will communicate grade level classroom assignments for your child in a convenient and secure manner. We will be emailing the classroom assignments to you directly using the e-mail addresses on file in PowerSchool on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Your child’s assignment can also be viewed via the PowerSchool Parent Portal that will be available beginning August 30, 2017. If you do not receive an email or are unable to access the information through the Parent Portal by the end of the day on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, please contact the Main Office at 586-797-5800.

You are invited to celebrate back to school with the entire UCS community at a special night of baseball at Jimmy John’s Field on Friday, August 25th.
