Dear UPCS Families and Staff,

UPCS is sending our thoughts and condolences to the families and friends of Jaiden Brown and Matthew Steffy-Ross.  We are deeply saddened by their loss, along with the students injured during Sunday’s mass shooting. Our most heartfelt condolences go out to everyone involved.

To date, UPCS has not been notified of any of our students being injured during the mass shooting early Sunday morning. This tragedy over the weekend has devastated us all.  The administration and counselors are alert to the needs of our UPCS families and will continue to monitor the needs of our students by responding with individual or small group support. Our priority is to provide resources to the students that may be going through this difficult time.  

If you or your child are experiencing difficulty during this time, please reach out to the school for support.  Our counselors will be available to assist during the grieving process.

Sincerely, 

Kathleen Garland, Principal
