Gov. Wolf issues Stay-at-Home Order – ALL district facilities/grounds CLOSED
On March 23, Gov. Tom Wolf issued a stay-at-home order for residents of Pennsylvania’s hardest-hit areas – including Allegheny County – to help combat the spread of COVID-19. In response to this new measure, ALL Upper St. Clair School District properties, fields and playgrounds are CLOSED.

Quarantine Spirit Week
A group of our USCHS student council senators had a mission this week to use social media to connect and lift spirits. They decided to host a "Quarantine Spirit Week" using their @uscstuco Instagram account. Each day had a theme and anyone in the community could send in submissions to be reposted on their account by 2:20 p.m., which is when the last bell rings on a typical day at the high school. The photo with the most "likes" by 5 p.m. each day was awarded a gift card via email. They created a video montage of all the submissions for the community to enjoy and feel connected. Mission accomplished! Click here to watch the video

USC Parent Organizations coordinate assistance
To no surprise, USCSD families have been reaching out to see how they can help others during this pandemic. As it stands, we currently have families in USC that could use some help right now and we, unfortunately, expect to have many more in the future. This is why the Boyce PTO, in conjunction with all other USC PTO/PTA/PTSOs, has established the "USC Schools Care for USCSD Families” fundraiser.  Read more
