From the Desk of the Principal

  • Let Spring Begin!!

    April 13, 2015

    Greetings Parents/Guardians of UHS:


    **On April 16, 2015, UHS will host it's biennial Mock Car Crash for our Junior and Senior classes. An intense performance will take students through the entire happenings of an impaired driving tragedy, beginning with the accident itself, though the Emergency Room, Court and finally ends with the eulogies of two victims in a reenactment of a funeral.

    Thank you to the following community agencies for their support: Uxbridge Police Department, Uxbridge Fire Department, Tancrell Jackman Funeral Home, Lucille's Floral Designs, Uxbridge High School Spartones, Uxbridge High School Drama Club, Worcester County District Attorney’s Office and The Salvage Center.

    Students will then have the opportunity to hear Mr. Thomas Hermanowski, of ADAPT, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Training, present "Prom/Graduation Thoughts- Sober Thoughts" for closing remarks.

    **Prom tickets are on sale April 13-17 and 27-30.  Tickets are $55 each.  All attending UHS students must pay class dues in order to attend.  Prom is May 8 at Crystal Lake Tavern in RI.  All guest requests must submit their form to the main office by April 27.


    **Quarter 3 ends on Wednesday, April 8, 2015.  Report cards will be issued on Friday, April 17, 2015.  A reminder, progress reports and report cards are distributed electronically during quarters 1, 2, and 3.  The final end of the year report card will be mailed home.  If you would like a hardcopy of either a progress report or report card please contact guidance secretary Jen Robertson with this request @ 508-278-8633 or jrobertson@uxbridge.k12.ma.us.


    **If you are interested in chaperoning a field trip/event parents/guardians must be CORI’d and fingerprinted. As a reminder: CORI’s are good for  3 years and fingerprints are a onetime thing (there are a few exceptions).  If they go to www.uxbridgeschools.com and on the right side of the homepage, there is a link that pertains to the fingerprint information and how to make an appointment.  It could potentially take up to 3 weeks to receive a report and you may have issues obtaining a good print (which means it takes the report longer  – up to a month).  Thank you for your help with this mandate.


    **Note from the Nurse…

    Not all sophomores were screened for vision and hearing screenings in March so an additional date on April 16 has been added.  Grade 10 students with last name beginning with ‘R through W’ need to be screened.  Any student who was absent or did not make the first screening day will also be screened.  Screenings will take place in the Library. Students will be called down alphabetically.  Students who wear glasses should have them on hand that day.


    **MCAS testing this spring is around the corner.  Here are the dates for Uxbridge High School.  Please be aware of these dates and try not to schedule appointments or trips during MCAS testing.  Thank you.

    Mathematics -- May 12 & 13

    Science/Technology -- June 2 & 3
