Dear UHA Family,

After much consideration as well as following the advice of state and local officials, I regret to inform you that we will remain closed until after Spring Break. Our plan is to resume classes Monday, April 20th.

Creating social distance among individuals is a critical element of containing the spread of COVID-19. We realize this decision is causing many hardships and sadness among our families. We will continue our alternate learning plans (see below).

Upper School – Teachers will continue to share assignments and information. Students need to check their google classrooms and emails daily. Please be mindful of deadlines.

Middle School – Teachers will continue to share assignments and information. Students need to check their google classrooms and emails daily. Please be mindful of deadlines.

Lower School- Teachers sent home packets for two weeks. The expectation is that those packets be completed and returned on our first day back. Teachers may email additional specific information for their classroom.

I want to encourage you to continue your efforts and support your students as we all work together to get through this challenging time.

The office is now closed. If you need to contact staff, please feel free to email us.

SPRING FLING UPDATE LETTER: Our Spring Fling will be entirely virtual this year. While we will not have the physical event, we will have the main and silent auctions online. Bidding will begin Monday, April 13th – Friday, April 17 at noon. Everyone will receive more details soon. You may preview items at uha.givesmart.com

We have an additional note for Middle School Parents – Sadly, with the uncertainty of travel and the loss of instructional time, we feel it is best to cancel the Middle School trips that were scheduled for May. We are committed to refunding as much of the money as we can to our families. We will have more information on that process soon.

On a personal note, I have been so touched this week by the stories you have shared about our teachers assisting students and families coming together to continue learning. It is truly amazing and what we are all about at UHA.

Please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you and your children. As always we are so grateful for your continued support. We know the UHA family is strong, and we will continue to be there for one another in the days and weeks ahead. Take care.

Sincerely,
Beth Unfried
