The Middle School academic and activity programs will be explained by Principal Mark Albertsen and counselor Julie Flores. Students and their parents will be given an opportunity to ask questions about the Middle School rules and procedures. Students and/or their parents who need transportation to Dysart for orientation can catch a shuttle bus in front of Union High School at 8:15 a.m.
