INFORMATION ABOUT CLOSING AND DELAY PHONE CALLS
The Upper Dauphin Area School District has begun using Sapphire Notification System for making automated calls for closings, delays and emergencies. You may now set your preferences for these types of calls through the Sapphire Parent Portal. You may find help with this process by downloading the Parent Portal Notification Instructions. If you do not have a parent portal account, you may set one up using the Parent Portal Instructions.
INTERACTIVE LUNCH MENUS NOW AVAILABLE
Upper Dauphin Area’s food service company, The Nutrition Group, has partnered with Nutrislice to provide fully online and interactive lunch menus for UDASD students, parents and staff. This improvement will provide everyone with expanded access to up-to-date menus-anywhere and anytime. Parents will still be able to print weekly or monthly menus and to filter what is printed based on dietary needs, preferences or carb counts. The menus are also available via the Nutrislice mobile app and Amazon Alexa enabled devices. The interactive menus are available via the UDASD Nutrislice website.
THREE IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR (2017-18)
- Educational Trip Requests: The UDASD has changed the maximum number of days for educational trips from ten (10) days to five (5) days beginning with the 2017-18 school-year. Forms that were already submitted and trips that were already planned during this school year that exceed the five day limit will be grandfathered.
- Automated Attendance Calls: The UDASD has begun making automated attendance notifications for the 2017-18 school year. Instead of receiving a call from the office secretaries, parents will receive an automated call similar to what is used for school closings and delays. This process will be rolled out over the next several weeks at all buildings.
- Vaccination Requirements: Please note that the vaccination requirements for students have changed. Failure to obtain the vaccinations specified may result in your child being excluded from school (unless your child has a religious/philosophical or medical exemption). Please review the updated requirements to ensure that your child is in compliance.
