Principal's Message

Welcome to University High School!

Thomas Ott

Good afternoon University High School families,

This is Principal Ott. I am writing to let you know that we will be implementing a new safety measure on campus during arrival and dismissal. On Tuesday, January 18th, we will begin a car decal system for car riders. If you drop-off and/or pick-up a student at University High school you will need to register your vehicle and pick-up a rearview mirror hang tag. For those who have an email on file with the school, you will receive the registration link directly, otherwise, you will need to go to the front page of our website to find the link. The link will take you to the registration form for your vehicle if you plan to drop-off or pick-up your student. The registration will be connected to your student’s school ID number. Once the form is completely filled out and submitted, you will be given a rearview mirror hang tag which indicates to school administration and our School Resource Officers that you are authorized to be on our campus to pick-up or drop-off your student. If you do not have a hanger on your rear-view mirror you will have the opportunity to manually fill out a registration form in the car line.  We will provide an opportunity for anyone still without a hang tag following our distribution of decals to complete the registration form while in the carline prior to Monday, January 24th, in which at this time vehicles will no longer be allowed on campus at arrival or dismissal until the registration has been completed. Starting on January 18th through Friday, January 21st, our leadership team will be out and about during dismissal to verify that you have completed registration and to distribute the hang tag to you once you arrive on campus to pick up your child.  We encourage you to complete the form as soon as possible.  Please know that the safety of students and staff is our top priority which is why we are implementing this new procedure.

Thank you for your continued support of UHS.
