Free Admission to Games for Unionville and Patton Students

As a reminder for UHS and Patton students, you no longer need to buy tickets for Unionville home sporting events - with the exception of football games and playoffs. We are happy to provide this benefit for our District students. We do ask that all students present their school-issued student IDs at games. Unionville High School event workers will begin to enforce this rule, so please remember to bring your ID! 


College-Athlete Photo Opportunity

Attention Student-Athletes:

February 1st is the second National Letter of Intent signing date of the school-year. On this date, we will be taking group photos of our athletes at 7:15AM.  Any senior-athlete who has played at the Varsity level for Unionville High School this year, and plans to continue their playing career in college, is invited to attend.  This photo opportunity is open to all UHS Varsity student-athletes that will play in college (D1, D2, D3, etc.)

So that coaches and parents may be included, we ask that athletes planning to attend please come to the Athletic Office (Room 176) by Wednesday, January 25th to sign-up. Please note, there will be one final photo opportunity for senior-athletes in May. 



The 2017 Used Book Collection will be Saturday, January 21, 2017.  

Once again, we will need Juniors and Seniors with driver's licenses to kick off the 2017 Used Book Sale by collecting used books from neighborhoods in our District. Freshmen/Sophomores can volunteer too, but will need a parent to do the driving.

A link to a Google Docs spreadsheet listing the routes is below.  Streets are grouped together in numbered routes. Please click on the link, find the route that you prefer, and then sign up for that route number on the Signup Genius.  

You may sign up for more than one route. You may collect by yourself or with friends.  Just be sure that everyone collecting with you is signed up to insure that they get community service hours. When listing your phone number, please be sure to enter the number where you can be reached on collection day.

In the event of a school closure on collection day (such as for snow), collection will take place the following Saturday.

So, on January 21st, you should start collection after 9:00 AM. When all the streets on your routes are finished and/or your cars are full, bring collected books to the UHS Cafeteria LGI (at the gym entrance) to unload.  Book sale committee members will be at school to meet you. It may take multiple trips to complete your route. 



After school testing will not be available on Tuesday, January 24 (student 1/2 day). 


The Testing Center will be open until 2:18 pm on Monday, January 23, 2017 and Tuesday, January 24, 2017.  (Student Mid Term Exams and Student 1/2 days).
