TABLE OF CONTENTS

GETTING READY!

In order to help you get organized for the school year, you will find valuable information in the Getting Ready section and a supply list for your child's grade. We encourage you to spend time reviewing this information. 

NEW FAMILIES

If you are a new family joining UNIS, we encourage you to go directly to this "New Families" page for your checklist and more specific information.

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 veracross@unis.org). 

NURSE

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 SchoolPass to relay daily dismissal plans. In Arrival and Dismissal you will find detailed instructions for setting up your family SchoolPass account, as well as the UNIS protocols and expectations.
