Recycled Uniforms:

We are always happy to accept uniforms that are still usable for our recycled uniform program.

 

Please leave any donations in the front office for pick up.

******************************

A couple of reminders from our Unity School Nurses:

  • Parents, please remember to wash your child’s mask regularly.
  • Masks should fit snugly across a child’s face, fully covering their nose and mouth.  If a mask is too large or stretched out, it doesn’t provide the right coverage or protection.
  • If your child(ren) is/are having any flu-like symptoms, please keep them home.  Please notify your child’s teacher and the school nurses at clinic@unityschool.com.  We are doing everything we can here on campus to keep students healthy and safe, and we ask that you continue to do this at home as well.

Thank you.

Parent Meetings with Head of School Candidates on Campus

We are so excited to welcome four Head of School candidates to campus so that they can see our close-knit community in person. Greeting these candidates and learning more about their approach to educational leadership is the next step in the process.

All meetings will be held from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in the school cafeteria.  At these gatherings, the candidates will make a short (approximately ten minutes) introductory presentation. After that, we are asking candidates to come with a few questions for those in the audience. Following this, the floor will be open to audience questions for the candidates.  After the finalist visits are complete, we will distribute a short survey to gather further input. You will receive a copy of each candidate’s cover letter, resume, and educational/leadership philosophy on the day before their arrival.

Candidate #2 – Tuesday, September 21st

Candidate #3 – Thursday, September 23rd

Candidate #4 – Tuesday, September 28th

When arriving on campus please enter through the front gate by the main office and kindly wear your mask at all times.
