Good afternoon Parents, Students, and Community Members,

We at Union School District miss our students and hope that we can return to our normal routines and schedules sometime very soon.  However, in the meantime, we are preparing and planning to provide for our students’ educational needs to the best of our ability and given all available resources.  Over the past week, we have provided materials and resources for use within the home to help students stay current with their educational skills.  The same process is planned to continue for students through April 26th.  Starting on April 27th, we will plan to transition our educational program to one which offers new instruction for students for a grade which will make up student scores for the fourth grading period.  We will still plan to have our last student day on June 3rd, as has been on our school calendar this year.

Students who have Internet capabilities will access their education through online means for the 27 instructional days between April 27th and June 3rd.  Each student is expected to log in daily.  Students without Internet capabilities will be provided alternate forms of instructional materials which will cover the same material and topics.  Teachers will have three hours of office time available for communication and questions from students daily.  The available times may vary by individual teacher.  Union School District will also be providing additional educational services for students with specialized learning needs between June 8th and June 19th.  Parents of students who are eligible will receive notice and have the option to opt into such services if so desired.  The mode of instruction may vary depending on whether schools are allowed to reopen or not in the month of June.

We are aware that spring events such as graduation and prom are of high importance to our students and parents.  As of the current date, no decisions have been made to cancel these events, as we do not have guidance from our state government indicating what may be allowed.  Since the state is on a “Stay at Home” order through the month of April, prom is postponed until further notice.  Once we have further guidance on these items, we will share with the community. 
Thank you for your continued patience as we work through these stressful and uncertain times.  Please stay healthy and safe!

Sincerely,



John Kimmel, Superintendent
