Greetings University School Families! As we prepare for our final week of the 2020-2021 school year, we want to thank all of our teachers, staff, parents, students, and ETSU family for your ongoing flexibility and support during this very challenging year. We know we have asked a lot of our entire school community and we couldn't be more thankful for all that has been done to make this year the best it possible could be under the circumstances.

This week we will wrap up the year with our graduation festivities on Friday night. We are extremely proud of our graduates and look forward to seeing what the future holds for each of them. In addition to the graduation ceremony on Friday, we do have several other events and accomplishments we would like to celebrate this week, so we ask that you please review the following information and calendar events listed below.

Have a great week and Go Bucs!

Congratulations, Ms. Myra - You'll be Missed!!

Congratulations to Ms. Myra on your retirement plans at the end of this school year. Ms. Myra attended University School as a student, her children also attended and she has worked as an assistant in Kindergarten for over 25 years. She has had a positive impact on so many students and families at University School and we are forever grateful to her! As she enjoys her final week with us as a staff member at University School, we ask that you please help us this week in showing her your love and appreciation for all that she has done over the years for our school family.

  • Masks need to be worn while indoors or when being transported by school transportation.
  • When outdoors or eating and drinking indoors, masks may be removed and physical distancing guidelines should be followed.
  • Any school trips planned for this week will follow the transportation and masks guidelines listed above as well as any venue expectations if more restrictive.
  • Graduation safety expectations and other scheduled senior events located on the ETSU campus will be sent out to our graduating seniors and families this week.
