TABLE OF CONTENTS
VERACROSS PARENT PORTAL
Access to the UNIS Parent Portal becomes available to new families after you receive an email from our Technology Department confirming that the Portal is open to you and giving you your family login information and a temporary password (you can reach them for support by email at email@example.com).
Before your child may begin to attend classes, you must upload your child's medical information in Magnus and update your family's contact information in the Veracross Parent Portal at myunis.vc (including home address, mobile and work phone numbers, email addresses, and caregiver contact information).
ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL
Our age appropriate Junior School Arrival and Dismissal Protocols are designed, first, to support out students’ safety and maximize their learning times while supporting their independence. Junior School families use School Dismissal Manager (SDM) to relay daily dismissal plans. In Arrival and Dismissal you will find detailed instructions for setting up your family SDM account, as well as the UNIS protocols and expectations.
Please sign up for yellow bus service in Transportation if eligible, and our After School and Care Programs, and Athletics Program as needed. Meal Plan information can be found under MORE above.
