During the 19-20 school year, we will be offering two options for PreK and KG1.  The first will dismiss at 12:45 and the extended day option will dismiss at 3:00PM.  Please fill out which option you will choose in the Extended Day survey.

Technology has become an essential part of education across our world. UAS is committed to providing its students the tools necessary for them to be competitive in the ever-changing job markets. We have selected Apple iPads for our Elementary students and Apple Macbooks for Middle and High school students as these best suit the needs of our students and enable UAS to focus on teaching and student centered learning instead of having to learn how to use the technology.

All students enrolled in Grades 5 through 10 are asked to bring an Apple MacBook and case on a daily basis, as part of their normal school supplies. Grades 3 to 4 will be required to bring an iPad with a keyboard case. Our Apple Education partner, JTRS, has worked with us to provide families with a discount for Apple products chosen by UAS. This discount is available for the entire UAS community though, not just students in grades 2 through 10. All models of Apple laptop (MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro) not older than 3 years and currently sold are acceptable for use at UAS if the hard drive/SSD drive is 256GB or greater. Parents may purchase a student MacBook directly from our Apple Education Partner, JTRS, and receive an educational discount or may also choose to purchase from another vendor as long as the minimum criteria is met.

Parents may go to the below link and choose from a number of UAS approved MacBooks and iPad. Once the form has been filled out with selections and payment completed, parents will receive an email with further details. Students will be able to collect their new MacBook on student orientation day at the start of the new school year or from the IT office during the school year.

We would encourage you to place your order before July 15, 2019 in order to guarantee receipt of your device by September.

Parents can go to the link below to access instructions for ordering the device.
