ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

  • In the last 24 hours both Governor Newsom and the County Superintendent have suggested that public schools will not reopen until the end of April or early May.  We are aware of this information and are continuing to assess the situation, but have not yet made a decision on when we will reopen for on-site instruction.   We anticipate the potential for further cancellation or postponement of some of our activities and as we make decisions, we will update them below.
  • The trip to San Francisco to see “Hamilton”, that was scheduled for April 18, has been canceled.  Refunds will be made available after Spring Break.
  • The Symphony Concert (4/14) and Wind Concert (4/15) have been canceled.  The concerts scheduled for the end of April and beginning of May will take place until further notice.
  • Fresno State recently sent an email to all students announcing the cancelation of all graduation ceremonies for this spring. At this time, UHS has not taken similar steps. We prefer to continue to assess the situation and address the decision in a few weeks.
  • Some of our students and parents have asked about AP testing. The College Board is in the process of finalizing the testing process and will provide complete details during the first week of April. Please watch for emails from Mrs. Fernandez.
  • Though Governor Newsom has issued a Stay at Home Order, the guidelines do not extend to essential services like education.  In order to meet the needs of our community, a staff member will be in the campus office each day. Please note the office hours listed below.
  • We are pleased to announce that our online instruction continues to be successful. All school work will count towards your student’s semester grade. Please contact teachers via email if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Our Tutoring Center now has gone virtual. Click here for the website.
