Drop off/Pickup Carline
Authorized Pick-up: UCS requires each family to maintain an updated authorized pickup list for their children within the MyUC Portal. Each authorized individual will be required to present a valid form of identification to our receptionist.
Drop-off via Carline: All students may be dropped off at the main entrance beginning at 8:00 AM each day. Faculty and Staff will be located there to walk and assist your student into the building. Please wait in a single file line and pull forward to the furthest available position as the line moves forward. A UC staff member or Safety Patrol will open the door and assist each student in exiting the car. Please assist us in keeping the line moving quickly by having your children prepared to exit with their bags and other belongings ready once the automobile comes to a complete stop.
Upper School students will enter the building through the Upper School office entry, located behind the flagpole.
Lower School students will enter the building through the Lower School Hallway where a staff member will be holding the door for them.
- For safety reasons, we do not allow parents of students to enter the building past the main or walk up entry during drop-off times. A staff member will always be present at this door and throughout the hallways to assist your children in walking to class.
Drop-off via Walk-up Entrance: Students in K1 - K4 are required to be signed in by their parent at the classroom door each day. All Pre-School students and parents may enter the building through the Lower School Hallway or through the main school office entry doors.
Lower School pickup takes place from 3:00 to 3:15 PM in front of the main school office entrance for grades JK-4th grade and under the church portico, closest to the flagpole, for grades 5th and 6th. Each family is provided a car tag number to display by hanging on their rear view mirror. When pulling onto campus, please enter the carline at the rear of the line. Keep in mind the rear maybe at the flag pole.
As the line progresses forward please have your tag in clear view for the staff to view. Continue to advance forward as the line moves and pull forward to the furthest cone. K3-4th grade students will be awaiting you at that cone with a staff member, while 5th and 6th grade students will be called to your car in the pickup zone. Students with multiple siblings will always go to the pickup location of the youngest child and will be assigned one family number for ease of memorization.
Family pick-up via walk-up is allowed at the main entrance beginning at 3:10 PM.
Upper School pickup takes place from 3:15 to 3:45 PM under the church portico, closest to the flagpole. Continue to advance forward as the line moves and your child will come to your car once you have stopped and reach the pickup zone. Please do not stop and block traffic behind you short of this designated area. If your Upper School student is not at the pick up zone upon your arrival, please make another loop around in line and follow the above mentioned protocol.
When exiting the UCS property, please keep in mind that only right turns are allowed out of both the Spring Park and University exits for traffic safety and preventative backup purposes.
**Students that arrive before 8AM or are not picked up by end of carline will be placed in Extended Care where there are additional fees.
