SIS Parent Accounts
Union Mill ES is providing SIS Parent Accounts to each parent of a student at our school. This will enable access to view your student’s attendance, report card grades, and additional information, establishing another form of communication between home and school.
Each parent will receive a letter in the mail providing a web address, activation key, and directions on registering for your account. You should be looking for this letter to arrive during the week of March 9, 2015.

Calling all Kindergarteners!
We are looking for future Kindergarteners! We need your help in projecting the Kindergarten enrollment for the 2015-16 school year, so we are searching for next year’s students! Any child who lives within our school boundaries and will be five years old on or before September 30, 2015 is eligible to attend Union Mill. If you know someone (within our boundaries) who has a child eligible for Kindergarten, please share this information with them. Please contact school registrar, Sherri Brown, at 703-322-8500.
Preschool Survey forms went home in student backpacks a couple of weeks ago. If you have a child in your home who will be eligible to enter kindergarten or who will be new to FCPS in first grade this September, please help us by listing them on the Preschool Survey form and returning it to us before March 31.If you would like an extra copy of the form to share with a neighbor who does not yet have a student enrolled at Union Mill, please click here. As always, we thank you for your assistance.
