University Schools Closure

- as of April 15 -

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.

 The UofM Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning & Research Center is a laboratory preschool affiliated with the University of Memphis which offers a unique learning environment, a nurturing place that encourages children to explore their own active learning abilities. Here they are guided by specially trained teachers and are supported by community.

Here children engage in creative questioning and problem-solving. They learn to understand and share with each other. They form interpersonal communication skills. And they discover and expand their world through a truly interactive environment.

Learning, teaching, growing. Here children get the wings they need to go further and achieve a higher success in life's many lessons to come.
