COVID 19 Response

The first day of school 2020-2021 is in the books! Many thanks to our faculty, students, and families for pulling together to make our year start smoothly. We have worked diligently and thoughtfully to create safe conditions for our USL community. Overall, we’ve emphasized the need to offer one another grace and understanding as we collectively make the best of this unprecedented situation. 
Our USL students have been terrific about mask wearing and maintaining 6-feet of distance when transitioning around campus. We will help our students continue to acclimate to the expectations on campus over the next 3-4 weeks, with firm oversight and repetition. Practice, practice, practice!  
Along with attention paid to the pragmatic aspects of being on campus physically and remotely, we’ve also made time for socializing activities for our students, many of whom have not seen each other in almost six months! It’s been heartwarming to see our older students slide right into their normal roles of leading the way and making everyone feel welcome. These first few weeks of school will focus on practicing our academic schedules with smaller numbers of students first so that we can best design, test, and share solutions and policies for issues that arise (like where to eat when our large outdoor space is rained out, determining the ways to best move during class transitions and drop off / pick up, etc). We’ll steadily and safely transition all in-person learners onto campus.

Sharing Learning Opportunities with our Community

VIRTUAL ACTIVITIES:
During this unique time USL has worked with multiple community members, from a variety of fields and specialties, to create web-based presentations and experiences for our USL community and the greater public.  They are designed to give interesting options for families (adults and children) during this time spent at home. You can find more details and links to these events on our Facebook page. We hope you’ll join us and enjoy!
Here is a link to Spring Activities.

Help Us Support Charleston County students-in-need during the COVID-19 crisis by clicking here.

Since the first week schools closed in mid-March, in coordination with CCSD, we have successfully helped students-in-need across Charleston County.  We gather books/toys/shelf-stable food/items needed in the current situation (hand sanitizer, paper towels, etc.) and then distribute them at sites each Friday.  This is part of the commitment we made to our long-standing friends in North Charleston (Midland Park Primary, PinehurstElementary, etc.) before schools closed that we would be there for them and their students during this crisis.  You can help by spreading the word, gathering items, serving as a donation spot, etc.   You can also help us by making a secure, online contribution using the above link: this enables us to purchase food to supplement what has been donated.
