Open House for Middle School students will take place on Tuesday August 17th. Sixth grade and new student orientation will run from 6-7pm with students and parents meeting in the Auditeria. Seventh and Eighth grade students Open House will run from 7-8 pm.

If you are an open enrollment student at Unioto, please make certain that your application is turned into our office immediately. These applications have to be resubmitted each year.

High School All-Call going out tonight: Good Evening, This is Unioto High School Principal, Nathan Caplinger calling with a few updates regarding the new school year. First of all, we would like to welcome all of our students back to “The U” for another great school year. We are always so proud of our students and we look forward to serving all of our students and families again for the upcoming school year. During this call, you will hear several important announcements regarding the start of school, but you can also find much of this information in our Back to School Newsletter which was sent out earlier in the week in the mail. Our annual Open House will be held on Tuesday, August 17th from 6-8 pm. Also during that evening, from 7-7:30 we will have our annual Freshmen/New2theU Orientation. If you are an incoming freshman or a new student to Unioto, you are welcome to attend this event to get some helpful information and tips about success in high school. Freshmen and new students may pick up a paper copy of their schedules after the orientation. Returning students, you will not receive a paper copy of your schedule at the open house. However, all students can view their schedule on ProgressBook very soon. Additionally, all students will receive a paper copy of their schedule on the first day of school in homeroom classes. Students, the homeroom class assignments will be posted throughout the school so you will be able to find your way to the correct location on the first day of school. Once you get your schedules, your teachers will tell you what school supplies you will need for their specific classes, so don’t worry about school supplies until you meet your teachers on the first day of school. Speaking of the first day of school, the first day of school for students will be Thursday, August 19th. The front doors for the school will open at 7:25 am. Once again, student drivers are asked to remain in their vehicles until 7:50 am. At that time, the student-driver entrance doors will be unlocked. Also, speaking of student drivers, please make sure that you come to the main office to procure your parking permit for the new school year. This is a simple process which only takes a few minutes, so students if you plan to drive to school this year, please make sure to take care of this as soon as possible. As always, we ask that all student drivers exercise patience in the first few days until all students have had a chance to sign up for a spot. Again, we thank you for your patience. In terms of breakfast and lunch this year, I am pleased to inform you that all students will automatically receive a free breakfast and a free lunch this year. While extra or a la carte items will cost extra, the standard school breakfast and lunch will be free this year for everyone, so students please take advantage of this opportunity. Students, who were in high school last year, this is a last chance to order a 2020-2021 year book. If you are interested, please send an email to Mr. Bumgardner at email@example.com. Also, attention High School Choir Parents: An informational meeting will be held for those able to attend on Monday, August 16th at 7 PM in the Auditeria. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the choir activities for the new school year. Finally, to our families who have open enrollment students, if you have not turned in your open enrollment forms for the new school year, please do so as soon as possible. Students, we are looking forward to another great school year and we can’t wait to see you back in the halls of UHS very soon! Thank you! Have a great evening.
We are so excited to kick off a new year here at Unioto Elementary! Class lists for the 2021-2022 school year can be viewed electronically by visiting the following link: https://5il.co/x5ln
All call for 4:00 pm today! Our Vision: By inspiring greatness, all students will realize their worth and potential. Our Mission: At Union-Scioto School District, students will learn, lead and make a difference. Our Motto: Today’s Learners, Tomorrow’s Leaders. I would like to welcome everyone back to school for the 2021-2022 school year! Yes it is here! As I said earlier in the summer leading up to the beginning of the school year is the one time it is perfectly acceptable to count the days. Of course, you still need to make every day count! School starts for students on Thursday, August 19! Just a few announcements: A reminder I plan to utilize our district facebook page for most of my communication this school year. Please like or follow Union-Scioto Local School District on Facebook. We will be utilizing our building pages as well. Please follow our district Twitter account Union-Scioto LSD for announcements and school related information. Open enrollment applications need to be turned in as soon as possible. These forms need to be completed each school year. Open house dates and times have been shared on social media and in the building newsletters families should be receiving via mail this week. Newsletters are available electronically on our building facebook pages and our new district website. Latchkey parents who are currently registered for this year, please remember, the August payment is due by the first day of school. Payments are always due by the first of each month. Last school year, we adopted several mitigation strategies in order to address COVID related issues for the purpose of keeping students and staff safe while providing the best learning opportunities possible. We will continue with many of the mitigation strategies such as cleaning and sanitizing our buildings, encouraging hand washing throughout the day, providing sanitizing stations throughout the district, daily monitoring of symptoms by parents, and social distancing as much as possible. Students, staff, and families are permitted and encouraged to wear masks while in the school building, but masks are no longer mandated; however, all students and staff are required to wear masks while using school transportation due to a federal order by the CDC. In the future, it may be necessary to adjust our safety protocols based on changes made by federal, state, and local authorities or a health emergency that occurs within our district. Please remember that in-person learning each and every day is the district’s expectation for our students. Lastly, I heard an interesting story about a pencil the other day...yes a pencil. Thought it was appropriate to share since we are embarking on a new school year and using pencils everyday. A pencil - in order for it to become useful it has to be sharpened. Time and time again, over and over it has to be sharpened. If the pencil could actually feel, can you imagine how painful that would be every single time it had to be sharpened! However, the only way the pencil can continue to be useful is to be sharpened and deal with the pain. That is what it takes to be useful. Life is much the same. We are confronted with painful and challenging experiences throughout our lives but through these opportunities character and strength is developed. They are opportunities and preparation for your next big problem or painful experience. These tough experiences fortify you and equip you with the tools and mindset you need to find the best of yourself. Last year was just that. It was tough. Be thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow from it and hold your head up, stand up straight, put your shoulders back and embrace the responsibility of each and every day. Your future you is counting on it. We have definitely been sharpened and are ready and prepared for this year! We look forward to working together to achieve yet another safe and successful school year. Go Tanks!
We are so excited to kick off another great year here at Unioto Elementary!

I am planning to transition most, if not all, of my communications to families through this page instead of my current account. Facebook has a 5,000 friend limit on regular accounts and with additional families needed to add each year the new page “Union-Scioto Local School District'' will be utilized. The Union-Scioto Local District page allows an unlimited amount of followers. Parents will be able to message me through the district Facebook page moving forward just as you have been able through my account. A special thanks to one of our freshman students Blaine Prater for designing our new cover photo. Looks great! Love the picture!! Thank you Blaine! To find the link search for Union-Scioto Local School District on Facebook. Link to access the district Facebook page is below. https://www.facebook.com/Uniotoshermantanks1936 Open enrollment applications will be available on our district website and each of the buildings starting April 1, 2021 for next school year. Please remember, the application must be submitted each year. Have a wonderful spring break, great weekends and 10 days til Monday! Go Tanks!
