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 firstname.lastname@example.org).
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).
Junior School families use School Dismissal Manager (SDM) to relay daily dismissal plans to their child's teacher, as well as the Transportation and After School departments. In Dismissal you will find detailed instructions for setting up your family SDM account, as well as the UNIS dismissal protocols and expectations.
DROP OFF: NEW PROTOCOL
Our Junior School morning routines are designed, first, to support out students’ safety. They are also a special opportunity for our teachers to focus solely on welcoming each of their students and help them settle in for a successful day of learning. All Junior School students must be escorted by parents/caregivers into the school building at drop off time and pick up in the school building by parents/caregivers at pick up time. Instruction in Junior School begins promptly at 8:30am. In order to welcome the students in their classrooms and get settled for the day, parents are asked to have their children arrive to school promptly at 8:20 a.m. However, if you arrive earlier than 8:20 you may drop your child off in the playground or go to the cafeteria together.
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.
