UP Education Network, together with our district partners, BPS and LPS, is working to support our students and families in these trying times. Per the Governor’s statewide order, all UP schools are closed through the end of the school year.
For families of UP Academy scholars, if you can’t contact your school or school leaders and have questions or concerns, you can call (617) 752-2302. If you don’t reach anyone, leave a voicemail and we will respond as soon as possible.
Please see below for important information and the learning resources we have available. We are continually updating this page with new information and resources.
