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.

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).
Community Education offers a wide variety of programs for every age from infant to adult. Included in our brochure is a full selection of enrichment classes currently scheduled in our schools and throughout the community.
