UCS elementary schools are excited to welcome new families to our community for the next school year.  Office staff at our elementary schools will be available to  accept registrations on every Wednesday beginning May  27 through June 24 from 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. You may also call the office to register an appointment outside of these scheduled times.

UCS is committed to the health and safety of everyone. Please use the following process when registering:

  • Please stay home if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Only a parent/guardian will be permitted to bring registration information.  If a parent needs an interpreter, he/she can bring another adult with them.
  • Please wear facial covering upon walking up to the building and entering the building.
  • If you arrive at the same time as another parent,  please follow social distancing and stand six feet apart from others.
  • Parents need to provide ID before they will be allowed to enter the building.
  • Please see below for paperwork that is necessary to register your student. In addition to the original documentation, please provide a copy to minimize the amount of paperwork to be handled.
  • Once registration is complete, we are asking parents to exit the building.

All The Best,

Mr. Ellis
