    Unit 5 has a Self-Certification app that you can download called UNIT 5 SAFE from the Apple or Google store. Here is the a LINK to download the app.

    If you do not want to download the app you can use this WEBLINK to self certify your student.

    Here is a VIDEO to demonstrate the app.

    Parents will need to complete a separate form for each student. Please complete the certification by 7 am on your child's in-person attendance days.

    Students returning to school for in-person learning days will attend on either a Monday/Thursday schedule or a Tuesday/Friday schedule. ALL students are remote on Wednesdays. If you are unsure which days your student attends in-person please email Ms. Leslie at or Mrs. Barlow at and they can tell you your assigned days. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades begin the in-person schedule next week, October 19th. Third, fourth, and fifth grades begin the in-person schedule the following week of October 26th.
    The details for our Back-To-School plan for arrival, dismissal, breakfast, lunch, office procedures, mask breaks and more can be found on the
    Parkside Back to School document:
    Be sure to download the self certification app to certify your student if they are returning to school. The app can be found in the App Store by searching “Unit 5 Safe.” All students must be self certified by a guardian prior to arriving at school on in-person days.
