Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,
Today, April 1, 2020, Governor Wolf has issued a stay at home order for Pennsylvania until April 30th. The same restrictions now are put in place for the entire state, which were in place for specified counties for the past several days. Only essential employees will be working within school buildings, as has been occurring over the past several weeks, so communication will be best facilitated through email. Food service will remain operational, as it is deemed an essential/ life-sustaining program.
Union School District will be continuing to provide for continuity of education through an enrichment/review platform for the current time period. As developments or changes occur with this process, more information will be provided via the district’s website. We are currently exploring additional educational options as well as participating in newly available grants which may provide for equitable access to online educational resources. As we have no clear direction as to when or if we may return to physical attendance at our buildings, school operations remain in flux and decisions regarding provision of education, how we conclude the school year, district calendar, etc., will be made over the next several weeks. We greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we move forward through such uncertain times. I wish you all well, stay safe, and hopefully we may return to our normal routines sometime in the near future.
John Kimmel, Superintendent
Union School District
