Back-to-school information and important dates
Posted 07/31/2017 12:56PM

Upper Arlington Schools teachers and staff are excited to welcome back students beginning August 16 for the 2017-2018 school year.

Please read below for back-to-school information as well as important dates for each school.

Online Forms

Each year, Upper Arlington Schools asks the parents and guardians of returning students to verify and/or update important information such as medical history and emergency contact numbers. These back-to-school forms are completed online and take approximately 15 minutes.

Families should have received emails containing secure links to their students’ back-to-school forms in mid-May. If you are the parent or guardian of a returning student and you have not received an email containing a secure link to your student’s forms, please notify the district by emailing backtoschool@uaschools.org.

Transportation Information

The district offers transportation services to elementary and middle school students who live 1.25 miles or greater from their home school. Transportation also may be provided to students with special education transportation needs. The district uses information from online student registration to build bus routes during the summer, and the routes are posted to the district website at www.uaschools.org/transportation following approval by the Board of Education at the August meeting.

Parents and guardians should monitor their email for notification when that information is available. We also recommend checking the bus route the week before school begins as last-minute registrations can have slight impact on stop times. Bus stops remain posted until September, at which time any new transportation requests must be coordinated through our Transportation Department.

Device Distribution

Devices for grades 6 through 12 will be distributed to students at their school during the scheduled device pick-up dates listed below under Important Dates.

Devices for students in kindergarten through grade 5 will be in their classrooms on the first day of school.

All students must complete and submit two forms at device pick-up (secondary grades) or on or before the first day of school (elementary grades):

Device Loan Agreement

Technology Protection Plan

This school year, the Technology Protection Plan is the only fee associated with device pick-up. Families interested in purchasing the Technology Protection Plan ($70) may log on to the district’s online payment system, SPSEZpay, to purchase the plan. Payments by cash or check may be submitted to the school office. If a student’s fees are not paid prior to receiving the device, the Technology Protection Plan is void.
