In alignment with Shelby County Schools, has announced that all schools will be closed
for the remainder of the school year and so we have closed our physical locations
indefinitely. We have officially transitioning to virtual learning for the remainder
of the academic year within our University Schools. Our University Schools will adhere
to this closure and this will impact our Early Learning & Research Center, Campus
School and University Middle.
You can find helpful information and resources about COVID-19, including facts from the Health Department and CDC, handwashing tips and other general guidelines for virus prevention, on the UofM website at memphis.edu/coronavirusupdates and via the Shelby County Schools website at www.scsk12/coronavirusfacts. The Health Department has also launched a hotline number for questions about COVID-19: 901.692.7523. The number is staffed during regular business hours, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
As you know, this is a continuously evolving situation. We will remain in touch should any additional updates become available. Please know the health and well-being of your child is a concern we share, and we will continue to make decisions with their best interest in mind.
