Union Day School policies
School Volunteer Policy
If you want to be a volunteer at UDS, you must undergo a background check at your expense. Simply call the number listed and tell them that you would like to be an APPROVED VOLUNTEER for Union Day School. There is a nominal $29.00 fee for the application process - Please note that your volunteer status is good for the 2018-2019 school year. Please note, although it only takes 24 hours for the approval, it does take time for the background check company to give us an updated list. You will be notified via your classroom teacher once when you are approved. The number to call is 704-504-0928.
Field Trip Chaperone Policy
All field trip chaperones need to be approved volunteers AND be approved to attend the field trip by the classroom teacher. Parents are not permitted to “show up” to a field trip without BOTH of these approvals. This is for the safety of our students.
All visitors are required to present their driver’s license at the front desk for any school visits. Please report to the front desk immediately upon entering the campus. Sign in at the front desk upon entering the school, provide your anticipated time of departure, and sign out when departing. Any visitors who intend to leave the front lobby will need a security badge provided by reception. The same policy holds true for the Kindergarten building. Thank you for helping keep our Gryphons safe! Unauthorized persons will be reported to the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
