Students must remain in Unity uniforms until the very last day of school
The 8th graders are not required to wear uniforms on Wednesday, May 31, but they must be dressed in Unity approved clothing.
Speaking of uniforms, if your child has outgrown their uniforms, or going from elementary school to middle school (where the colors are different!) we are collecting washed, gently used uniforms for our future uniform sales.  Please just put them in the garbage bin (labeled for the uniforms) outside of the main office.  Thank you in advance.

End of Year Medication Pickup:

Please pick up your child’s medication the last week of school. All remaining medications that have not been picked up by June 1, 2017 will be discarded. The school cannot store any medications for the following year.

Medication Reminders for Next Year:

  • All prescription/ nonprescription medications must be in the original container with the child’s name clearly marked.  Medications must be dropped off by a parent/guardian.
  • All medications must be accompanied by a “Physician Authorization for Student Medication”  form with parent/guardian’s signature. Prescription medications will also require a physician’s signature.
  • Any medication (such as Epipens or Inhalers) that a student may carry with them  must be checked in at the clinic at the beginning of the year by the parent/guardian.  The physician must check “yes” on the form stating the student is allowed to “self carry” the medication.
