Welcome to UJS registration for the 2020-2021 school year!
In order to register for the 2020-2021 school year, please fill out both the registration form and visit our payment system at the links provided below. There are three main parts to the registration process:
- Registration information
- Uploading vaccination records
Registration: We are asking ALL families to fill out this information, as part of our ongoing efforts to keep our information about our families current. Please fill this out for enrollment in all grades from Pre-Kindergarten through Madrichim. We have regretfully decided not to offer Gan Katan, our 2-3 year old program, this year because of the special circumstances surrounding creating a school program during the COVID-19 pandemic. We request that you fill this out as early as possible to help us plan for the start of the school year. This form must be submitted prior to the start of school. If you prefer, you may download the form for printing and filling out by hand 2020-2021 School Registration Form. Completed forms can be emailed to the interim co-Directors, Rabbi Michael Schadick at Rabbi@grtemple.org or Rabbi David Krishef, RabbiK@UnitedJewishSchool.org.
Vaccination policy: The routine vaccination of all students is an important public health matter. Both the Reform and Conservative movements believe that childhood vaccination is a mitzvah, based on the Torah’s exhortation to “take utmost care and watch yourselves scrupulously” (Deuteronomy 4:9). The requirement of all students at the United Jewish School is to be adequately immunized against all of the preventable childhood diseases as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices; therefore, it is United Jewish School policy that age-appropriate compliance of vaccination is enforced, and to exclude individuals who are out of compliance. Therefore appropriate documentation of immunization status will be required prior to the start of school. Parents must provide vaccination records or documentation of medical exemptions from the state or their pediatrician prior to the start of school. Your doctor or your local Health Department can print an Official State of Michigan Immunization Record for you. You can also request forms here: https://www.mcir.org/public/. More details about how to acquire documentation can be found here.
Payment: Tuition this year is $280 for the regular Sunday School program (pre-K through 10th grade) or the online Sunday School program (K through 8th grade), and $280 for the online-only supplemental Hebrew program (3rd – 6th grade). There is no charge for the 11th and 12th grade Madrichim program. You can pay all of the tuition at once or set up monthly payments from a link on the registration form. Important Note: If you set up monthly payments, make sure that you indicate how many payments you want to make. If you want to request confidential financial assistance, please email one of the interim co-Directors, Rabbi Michael Schadick at Rabbi@grtemple.org. or Rabbi David Krishef, Rabbi@AhavasIsraelGR.org. Payments must be submitted or alternate arrangements set up prior to the start of the school year.
We look forward to seeing you and your children at UJS in the fall!
