Lower School students attending Homecoming festivities after school hours must be accompanied by an adult and remain with that adult during dinner and games. The outdoor playground is closed during Homecoming basketball games. We encourage all students and families who attend the Homecoming basketball games to be mindful of our student-athletes and avoid going on the court during game play.

Following Thanksgiving Break, all exterior doors will remain locked when school is in session — as per state law (Tennessee Code § 49-6-817). All families, vendors, and other guests must ring the doorbell at the 19th Avenue entrance and present an ID to enter USN. We also will welcome Sgt. Anthony Jones and Cpl. Robert Gibson as School Resource Officers patrolling the Edgehill Campus and the River Campus.
The Artclectic 2023 chairs recruited talented committee volunteers, selected participating artists, solicited sponsors, planned parties, and ensured that there was something for everyone at our annual art show. The result: in its 27-year history, only two shows resulted in more sales than Artclectic 2023.
