     Welcome To Umatilla Middle School, a Title 1 School. 


Home of the Tigers


It is the mission of Umatilla Middle School that all

students will grow and learn in a positive

atmosphere where faculty, staff, parents,

and students together are enthusiastic about the

teaching and learning process utilizing data driven

instruction and research-based materials and programs.


            School hours 9:20-4:00
      (9:20-3:00 on Wednesday)
Umatilla Middle School will begin State Wide testing on February 28th.  Please see the UMS calendar for specific testing dates for your child.  As you know it is important that students perform at their best during testing situations.  Here are some Test-Taking tips to help our students.


1. Be Positive
Approach the big test as you'd approach a giant jigsaw puzzle. It might be tough, but you can do it! A positive attitude goes a long way toward success.

2. Plan Ahead
Know what the test is going to cover. Can you use your calculator? Do I know how to log on?

3. The Night Before the Test
Cramming doesn't work. Do a quick review if needed but don’t stay up late!  Your brain and body need sleep to function well, so get to bed early.

4. The Morning of the Test
Don't skip breakfast the morning of the test you brain works better when it is fueled. Get to school early and do a quick review, so your brain is turned on and tuned up.

5. Time for the Test
Make sure you have everything you'll need.  Read the instructions! Make sure you are marking answers correctly and don’t work ahead!

6. Manage Your Time
Scan through the test quickly before starting. Answering the easy questions first then  go back and complete the hard ones.

7. Having Problems
Reread the question to make sure you understand it, and then try to solve it. If you're still stuck, circle it and move on. You can come back to it later.

9. Write Clearly
Make sure bubbles are clear.

10. When Done
Don’t rush!  When finished go back and check your answers.  Check for careless mistakes such as skipped answers.  Go back and look at those hard questions!

            Skylert gives parents control of communications

Set your preferences to determine how often you receive calls from the district or schools

Getting information about what’s happening at your student’s school is important. But how you get that information is up to you!

The SchoolMessenger system we use to send automated phone messages has been integrated with the Skyward Student Management platform through the Skylert module. Through Skylert, parents and guardians can set their preferences for general communication from Lake County Schools.

If you have a Skyward Family Access account, and do not want to receive general calls from your school or the district, you can opt once you’re logged in. Don’t have an account? Click here to download an enrollment form. The Skyward Family Access account gives you access to your student’s grades as they are posted, along with attendance records, test scores, homework assignments and important district documents, such as the student code of conduct.

If you don’t want a Skyward Family Access account and you simply want to opt out of general calls, simply turn in a School Messenger Contact form at your child’s school.

Dear Government Leader:

On behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), I invite you to attend a public kick-off meeting regarding plans to conduct a corridor planning study that involves a 2.02-mile section along State Road (SR) 19 (North Central Avenue) from County Road (CR) 450-A to Bulldog Way / Olde Millstream RV Park in Umatilla, Florida. The study will involve a community-based evaluation to determine how to best meet the needs of current and future users, and to identify short- and long-term improvements along the corridor to ensure a balance between land use and transportation. It will also consider Healthy Community Design practices to encourage active transportation and physical activity in the community. The purpose of this public meeting is to present project goals and objectives, explain the study process, seek public and agency input, and provide interested persons an opportunity to get involved in the study.

The public information meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at the Umatilla City Hall at 1 South Central Avenue, Umatilla, Florida 32784. It begins with an open house at 5:30 p.m., followed by a live presentation at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will conclude at 7:30 p.m. Study team members will be available to discuss the study and to answer any questions you may have. Participants may provide public comment at any time, and written comments may also be submitted during the meeting or by mail. If submitted by mail, please send your comments no later than May 5, 2017 to Kyle Taniguchi, Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc., 225 East Robinson Street, Suite 300, Orlando, Florida 32801.
