CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS
If you'd like to volunteer at University Park Elementary School, you must complete our district's volunteer screening process. This can take 7-10 business days after submitting, and must be completed before volunteering. Please click on the volunteer packet link below:
TO REPORT AN ABSENCE:
If your child is going to be out of school for an upcoming extended period of time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to pre-arrange the absence. Please include the child's name and dates of absence
Daily absences can be excused by calling 907-479-6963 ext. 2
It is important to excuse all absences, as unexcused absence leads to truancy. Absences must be excused within 48 hours. Questions regarding attendance, please contact our office.
Work on the fiscal year 2024 (FY24) budget is ramping up, with the school board diving into the FY24 Proposed Budget. Due to the ongoing financial challenges facing our district, we have had to make some difficult decisions regarding reductions to the district budget.
