2018-2019 Saturday Academy Dates - [PDF]

Time: 10:00 a.m. — 4:00 p.m.

(Parents and guardians are invited to attend the April academy to learn about the summer academy and to celebrate seniors!)

Students are only allowed one unexcused absence from Saturday programs each year. In order for an absence to be considered excused, the Upward Bounders’ parent/guardian must submit a Saturday Program Excuse Form to the UB office no later than one week following the Saturday program. No absences will be granted for work-related reasons since the Saturday program dates should be provided to students’ employers in advance.

A Saturday program may be cancelled due to winter weather. Saturday programs cancelled for weather-related reasons will not be rescheduled.
