Welcome to Universal Creighton

Greetings Parents/Guardian,


We miss you very much and hope you are all safe and navigating through these challenging times!

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Universal Creighton will be moving from the traditional school setting to REMOTE learning from home. The information listed below is scholar work from March 30, 2020 - April 13, 2020. In the next week you will hear from your child’s teacher regarding how the remote learning will look.
