We will continue to follow state and local directives and recommendations to keep our students safe. Masks are not required.
We're right across the street from our sister school, Upper Columbia Academy (grades 9-12), so the two schools try to stay mostly on the same calendar schedule. Our schedule provides time off for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break, as well as days off periodically during the year. You can view the calendar using the "View the calendar/handbook" button above.
There's a parent-led childcare cooperative for before and after-school care located on UCA campus across the street from UCAES. It is not administered by UCAES, so parents need to make arrangements directly with Stephanie Gladding, the director. This information will be available at registration or can be emailed to you if requested. Cub Club runs from 7:45 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7:45 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on Friday. Cub Club is typically not open over school breaks, but you can discuss possible options with the director for a given break.
Washington state now has a health registry (WAIIS) that contains immunization information for Washington residents, including students. Vaccination Exemption forms are also available to fill out.
1. For new students, a parent will need to turn in a signed and dated CIS (immunization record) form as part of the registration packet to give consent for access to your child's immunization record. Along with the signed CIS form, rather than filling it out yourself, it's easiest to have your pediatrician fax your child's immunization record directly to the school at 509-242-1633 (or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org).
2. If you're a returning student, you only need to turn in a signed CIS form at registration each fall.
