Happy Friday, Ukiah Unified! The words gratitude, praise, and thanks don’t even come close to summing up the feelings I have for our partners throughout the pandemic. I want to thank the City of Ukiah, Mendocino County Public Health, Mendocino County Department of Education, Assemblymember Jim Wood, Senator Mike McGuire, Ukiah Teachers Association (UTA), California School Employees Association (CSEA), Ukiah Unified Trustees, parents, grandparents, family members, and, most importantly, our students. As this long school year comes to a close and each one of us becomes more exhausted with the impact of the pandemic on ourselves, our children, and in our community, I think it is even more important to focus our efforts on looking for and recognizing the good things around us and continuing to help others in our community. I want to thank you so much for all you have done. We have five more school weeks left - let’s finish strong as we plan for a full return in the Fall.
COVID Vaccinations for Students 16–18 In partnership with the City of Ukiah and Mendocino County Public Health, we are very excited to offer a drive-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic for Ukiah Unified students ages 16 - 18 on Saturday, May 1, 2021. One of our staff members will call you to schedule an appointment if you have a child ages 16 - 18. Although we have a limited supply of vaccines, this is a family event! The intent of this clinic is to vaccinate as many of our students who want to be vaccinated and the household family members of the students who are 16 and over. Because this is a private vaccination clinic, we will need to register each student and family member and schedule each appointment. You must have an appointment to get vaccinated. Unfortunately, you cannot just drop in. We will prioritize high school seniors first to give them as much as possible regarding end-of-year activities and graduation.
TK–8 Summer Camps June 9 - July 21 Ukiah Unified will provide a fun and engaging no-cost Summer Camp for elementary and middle school students for six weeks! The Elementary Summer Camp program will be in-person, 5-days a week. Snacks and a grab-and-go lunch will be provided. The camp is open to all UUSD students in current grades TK-8 and will be held at various school sites in the District. Please fill out an application for each child no later than Friday, May 7, 2021. Space is limited. Families will be notified of availability by Friday, May 14, 2021.
Ukiah High Summer School Ukiah Unified will provide summer school for those high school students who are identified for academic intervention, credit recovery, or a limited offering of elective courses. We will notify you if your child is selected to attend Ukiah High Summer School.
