ULS will be Closed for the Remainder of the School Year
Dear Cub Families,
At a press conference today, Governor John Bel Edwards issued a proclamation regarding the continued campus closure of all K-12 schools through the remainder of the school year. In compliance with that proclamation, the ULS campus will also remain closed.
I have been a part of the Cub community long enough to know that we can and will rise to this historic and unprecedented occasion. In fact, we have already started to do so. From the onset, the ULS transition to virtual instruction and learning was immediate. I could not be more proud of how our faculty, students and parents have come together, often quite creatively, to ensure that our academic endeavors move forward with the rigor and relevance to which our students are accustomed. As our online education now progresses through the remainder of the year, let us continue to support one another and keep the pace that has been set over the past weeks.
Looking forward, I and the entire administrative team, have begun a thoughtful review of all the important end of the year events and activities. We will collaborate to reschedule or evaluate alternative plans for as many as possible and will communicate those revised plans once fully determined.
This is a challenging time for all. As I said in a previous communication, we are all in this together. Let us keep in mind that our well-being along with that of our families, friends and neighbors is at the heart of all decisions being made by our community leaders. We must support them by doing our part to stay home, safe and well.
If there is anything that you or your family need, please do not hesitate to reach out to your instructors, counselors or administrators.
We may be apart physically, but our Cub spirit and sense of community remains as strong as ever.
