FAQ's for Science in the Summer

Why haven't I received any SIS email messages?

If you completed and submitted your registrations and forms you will automatically receive confirmation emails. Check your spam folder for email messages from "GSK Science in the Summer" or from "@email.unc.edu" or @unc.edu" addresses.

I made an error on my child’s online registration form. What should I do?

Log in to your online Active Network account using the password you submitted on the registration form. However, if you registered your child for the incorrect level, email scienceinthesummer@unc.edu to cancel the existing registration. Then, you should register your child for the correct level.

What are the sign-in and sign-out requirements?

A parent, guardian or approved adult must: 1) enter the SIS classroom with your child, 2) verify your identity by presenting a government-issued photo identification to the SIS educator, and 3) sign your child IN at drop-off and OUT at pick-up each day. Allow adequate time to complete this process.

The SIS educator is the only person permitted to check identification and facilitate the sign-in/sign-out process. Library staff members and high school assistants cannot do so.

Who can drop off and pick up my child?

During registration, provide the names of two parents or legal guardians AND up to five other adults to drop off and pick up your child from SIS. Adults must be 18 or older. Only individuals on this list will be able to drop off and pick up your child.

Can I make changes to my list of approved adults for drop off and pick up?

You will be able to make changes to your list using the online account created during registration until April 27, 2018 at 11:59pm.

After that time, you must email the Science in the Summer Office to make any additional changes to the list of approved adults. The list of approved individuals is final at 12 pm on the Thursday before your child’s SIS session begins. There are no exceptions
