___UCS voters to consider non-homestead millage renewal this fall


All voters in Utica Community Schools will be asked to reauthorize the district’s non-homestead millage at the general election on November 4, 2014. The proposal is a renewal of the district’s currently authorized non-homestead millage. The non-homestead millage is limited to rental, industrial and commercial properties. It has ZERO impact on owner-occupied homes.


We will be sharing information about the renewal over the next few months. We hope parents will become informed about this proposal and how it relates to our children’s education. For more information, please visit click on the millage renewal icon.




As we move into the flu season, we want to provide information about a new type of virus that has sypmtoms similar to a common cold - Enterovirus D68.  There is not a case in Utica Community Schools, however, it is important that we work together to take proactive steps that will help keep our students healthy and focused on learning.

New Federal Guidelines Set for Snacks Sold in School

New federally-mandated snack and beverage standards were implemented effective July 1, 2014 in school districts nationwide. This will impact snacks sold by the district and through school fundraisers.

In accordance with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Utica Community Schools has implemented the required nutrition standards for all snacks sold in school by all parties, including parent/student organizations, teachers, boosters, fundraisers and the Food and Nutrition Services department.

These standards for snack sales are in effect from any time before school through one-half hour (30 minutes) after school.

The standards do not apply to items sold beginning 30 minutes after school through the rest of the day. The standards do not apply to foods brought from home for personal consumption or to foods provided to students at no cost (i.e. approved special events).
