Dear Students and Parents, 

I am excited to welcome everyone to a new year at Poteau Upper Elementary. You can expect a few changes this year due to Covid 19. Plans have been made to make everything as safe as possible for our students and staff. 

As always, our faculty and staff at UES are dedicated to students….academic achievement and safety are our top priorities. Teachers spent time this summer attending professional development workshops to learn about new programs and plan teaching strategies to be prepared to deliver the best targeted instruction to students. We take pride in our commitment to education and look forward to working with you and your child this school year. 

Please take the time to read Poteau School’s Plan for Reopening to be aware of and prepared for the changes that will occur this year. These guidelines are posted on the Poteau Upper Elementary Facebook Page. Please know these changes are meant to keep everyone as safe as possible. 

We would also like to encourage parents to be involved in your child's education. Students whose parents take part in their education and support learning tend to do better in school. It only takes a few minutes a day to read with your child, assist them with their homework, or just engage them in conversation about their learning. You will not regret spending time with your child. I look forward to this new school year and thank you for placing your trust in UES. 


Kelly Holton,
