The mission of the Union School District, in harmony with our community, is to educate and empower students to become continuous learners in an environment which ensures that each student gains knowledge and skills, self-motivation and related positive attitudes necessary to compete equitably with peers locally and globally towards meaningful and productive lives.
Dear Union School District,

On Wednesday, March 29, 2023, many school districts in Pennsylvania have been affected by false reports of an active shooter on their campuses. From what we understand, schools have received internet-based phone calls with these threats, which turn out to be unsubstantiated. It appears to be part of a hoax known as ā€œswatting.ā€

While the Union School District has not experienced this issue directly, we know that many of our families may be understandably concerned about school safety. Please know that our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We take any and all reports of potential threats seriously, and we are making every effort to maintain an environment where students and staff feel safe.

We would like to continue to encourage our students and school community to report anything that could constitute a threat to school safety. As always, we work closely with local law enforcement to
assist in these situations. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your attention to this important update.

Dr. John Kimmel

Through the COVID 19 Pandemic, families qualifying for CHIP health care coverage were able to retain benefits through continuous coverage without the need to reapply yearly for benefits.  This provision is ending on April 1, 2023.  Therefore, families who utilize CHIP Health Care Coverage are strongly encouraged to reapply to avoid a lapse in coverage.

First opinions are often formed based upon your physical appearance. How you dress often projects an image which is related to your behavior and attitude. Therefore, it is imperative that you dress in a manner that projects a positive image. Secondly, your dress must be chosen with safety in mind. Any clothing which may pose a safety hazard is not permitted.  Lastly, your form of dress/appearance should promote a positive learning environment and cannot cause a disruption to your education or the education of others.
