PrincipalThe Lazy Days of Summer are here at Last! With the ringing of the last school bell for the 21-22 school year, our students and teachers head out the door to a well deserved summer break. Enjoy your break, summer adventures, and be sure to take some time to just relax and spend time together. Whether you're traveling far and wide, or sticking close to home, use this time when kids are home to slow down, get outside, and make memories with family and friends.

With its change in schedule and routine, summertime offers an opportunity and the downtime for students to refresh and recharge. We want this summer to be safe, happy, and healthy for everyone, so read on for tips on things to do, benefits and how-to's for maintaining a summer schedule, and the importance of tuning into the mental health of your child. For even more helps, take a look at our UCS Wellness page
