Dear Parents:

I want to take a moment to thank you for all you do to support your children. In our current atmosphere, the connections and support you give will be even more critical to their success. The events last Spring and this Fall couldn’t be further from how we view a typical school year.
The end of Summer usually marks the time of year when excitement builds in anticipation of returning to school...yes, the PHYSICAL school! That will not be the case this year, but we are working to ensure we meet the ongoing challenges head-on, with a plan for success for each child!


I am sorry we are not able to open this school year under the same roof, but we are still together. We are together in learning and growing, in being there for our families and the kiddos you entrust to our care. Sometime in the not so distant future, we will come together under the same roof again. I will rejoice in that prospect, and the opportunity to connect face-to-face again. Until that time, be content in the knowledge that we are rising to the challenge...together. 

Your Proud Principal,
Denise M. Bailey

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
