Utica Academy Revised Reopening Plan

Dear Utica Academy of Science Parents and Guardians,

After assessing our reopening plan with teachers, parents, families, and community members' input, we have made some changes to our reopening plan in order to ensure the health and safety of our students, families, staff, and community, while continuing to support the social-emotional and academic growth of our students.


Elementary School
Utica Academy of Science Elementary School’s first day of school will remain September 8th, however we will begin with one (1) week of online instruction. After the initial week online, UAS Elementary School will begin to bring back each grade level for hybrid instruction one week at a time. Following a staggered schedule to return students back to school will give the school additional time to meet with new families and prepare classrooms. It will also allow us to teach our Kindergarten students foundational skills in a smaller environment. In addition, it will give all students, whether they selected hybrid or full-time online, an opportunity to acclimate to online instruction with the full support of their teachers and administrators.

All families should have received a dojo message with your child's teacher's name, the instructional model that you selected, and if you selected hybrid, the 2 days that your child will attend in person.

Any families who selected full-time online instruction will remain online throughout the staggered return dates.

The elementary school schedule will be as follows:

  • September 8: Grades K through 3 will begin online instruction on September 8th.
  • September 14: Families who selected the hybrid model will send their Kindergarten students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 14th. Grades 1 to 3 will remain online.
  • September 21: Families who selected the hybrid model will send their First Grade students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 21st. Grades 2 to 3 will remain online.
  • September 28: Families who selected the hybrid model will send their Second and Third grade students to school following their scheduled days on September 28th. All families who selected full-time online, will remain online.

The health and safety of our school community is of the utmost importance. Staggering the return of students allows us the unique opportunity to take a measured approach to returning students back to school.

If you have any questions, please contact the elementary school main office at 315-574-3000 or your classroom teacher on ClassDojo or through email.


Middle School
Utica Academy of Science Middle School will begin to bring back each grade level for hybrid instruction in a staggered schedule.

  • September 8: Families who selected the hybrid model will send their 6th grade students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 8th. Grades 6-8 students who are receiving Special Education and ENL Services will also start in-person on September 8th. All 6th grade families who selected full-time online, will remain online. Grades 7 and 8 will remain online.
  • September 21: Families who selected the hybrid model will send their 8th grade students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 21st. All 6th and 8th grade families who selected full-time online, will remain online. Grade 7 will remain online.
  • September 28: Families who selected the hybrid model will send their 7th grade students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 28th. All families who selected full-time online, will remain online.

Please note that in-person education is only for those parents that selected Hybrid Model earlier. More detailed information will be provided to families via letter, e-mail, or robocall. If you have any questions, please contact the middle school main office at 315-266-1072.


High School
Grades 9-12 will be fully online in the 2020-21 school year as communicated since the beginning. We will provide online classes in both synchronous (live) and asynchronous classes. In addition, HS scholars will have an opportunity to come into the building and meet with their mentor once a week on a designated day.

If you have any questions, please contact the high school main office at 315-574-3000.
