From The Principal
Kenneth L. Cucchi III



Good afternoon Titan families,

We’ve been back two weeks and Semester 2 is in full swing and new classes are rolling.  We appreciate everyone’s cooperation with our mask mandate.  As of now, it will go through the end of next week.

Semester 1 Report Cards were distributed on Friday, January 7, 2022.  To receive the report cards, parents will need to have a secure PowerSchool account. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one.  The report cards were automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.  If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action. The report card was automatically sent to you.  If you did not receive one, please contact the school office and my staff will assist with you with this.

As a reminder, if your student is a contact, we have a quarantine communication process we have followed for the last three months.  You’ll receive and Email, Text and Phone call from me, typically between 3:30 and 4pm notifying you. Attendance may change to M (Medical) earlier than that, but rest assured the Email will come. If you receive the Email and have multiple student, PowerSchool will show you which student was quarantined. I continue to encourage our students to follow the mitigation guidelines put into place by the Macomb County Health Department to keep each other safe and to keep students in school.

Utica Community Schools and Ascension Health have created a partnership specifically for UCS families that provides free testing services at two Urgent Care Center locations, 44472 Hayes Rd, Clinton Twp, MI 48038 (south of Hall Road) and 7701 26 Mile Rd., Washington Township, MI 48094The center is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. No appointment is necessary.  Students should bring their student ID and families will need to complete the form found at this link. The results will be shared with the families and sent directly to the school district. Students who are under 18 years of age will need to have a parent or guardian with them during the visit.  

Commencement Dates and Location have been approved and released.  Utica Schools will be returning to the O Rena at Oakland University for our 2022 Commencement exercises.  Stevenson High School will have its graduation on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at 10:00 a.m.  More information to come! 

It's very important to
take time with your student to review the UCS High School Credit Review Rules and Procedures. In short, it starts by saying that a student has a responsibility to attend, be on time and prepared for each scheduled class.  When a student nears or is at 10 absences (any combination of absences or tardies) they will meet with their Associate Principal and parents will be notified.  At 11 absences the student will enter Credit Review and can restore those credits by making up the lost time for the classes via a contract made with their associate principal. 

Students, ID cards are required to be on your person at all times.  Not only for security reasons, but because you need to scan them at lunch!  We must record who is getting a lunch even though you’re not paying this year.  So, please make sure they have that card. 

Last but certainly not least, please be sure to check out the Stevenson Student Advisory Board Application that’s located under “Announcements” in this issue of the Titan Voice and under Parent Quick Links located at https://stevenson.uticak12.org/

With Titan Pride,

Kenneth L. Cucchi III
