Panda Families - Uphaus takes part in a wonderful program called Brighter Bites. They will be on campus with FREE, delicious fruits and vegetables for families once every two weeks after school.

The school doors open at 7:10 a.m. and close at 7:40 a.m. If you are late, you will need to park and walk with your child to the front office. But, please try to be on time!

Please drive SLOWLY through the parking lot for dropoff and pickup. There are lots of children loading and unloading, and teachers and families walking through the parking lot to and from the building. We want all of our Panda families to be safe!


Books Beginning at Birth is a statewide program that provides young children and their families access to books and resources to support the development of early literacy skills and foster a love of reading.

Uphaus Families - if you prefer not to utilize the car rider line (especially on the first day or two of school), we will have a Hug Zone at each of our morning entrances. Any student can come up to the front doors of the school. Pre-K 3 students can utilize the side entrance that faces North.

The car drop off and pick up lines always take a little bit longer the first couple days of school while new families are learning the ropes and everyone is getting into the routine.

Here at Uphaus, we offer After School Care through Extend-A-Care/YMCA. You can find out more at:


Here's what will be served in the school cafeteria during the month of August!

Uphaus families are able to use the car line for morning drop off and afternoon pickup.  Grownups will stay in the vehicle, and an Uphaus staff member will help your child out of the car and into the school building.

Come meet your teacher on Friday, August 11th!

Teachers will be calling families mid week.  If you don't get a call, that likely means that something is missing with your registration.   Parents - please make sure your PK app and registration is complete!
