From The Principal

Greetings UAIS families!

Our updated self-screening process for students and staff is still an important protocol everyone is asked to follow.  Each day, before you send your child to school, we are asking you to complete the screening process for/with your child.  This is for the protection of your child, their friends at school and our dedicated UCS team.  Please screen your child daily before leaving or sending them to school.  If your child shows symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. The revised protocols can be found at this link.  If your student is a close contact of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will be notified and your student will be quarantined according to the CDC & Macomb County Health Department guidelines.

If you know GLK-UAIS parents/families who are not receiving our email or phone communications, please ask them to contact the school. We must have the most up-to-date contact information to keep all families informed of our school happenings.

Finally, we would like to thank the UAIS Phoenix community for your patience as we continue to sort through all of the changes we have experienced during this most unusual school year. We realize things are not perfect, but I hope you understand how committed we are to making the best of this situation. Although we don't know what lies ahead, we will continue to get through each challenge together.


All the best to the entire Phoenix community!

Mrs. Beebe
