“Whether we are male, female, short or tall – we are Redskins. Whether we play sports, attempt to play sports, join a spirit squad, sing in the choir, act in productions, play in the band, produce artwork, do all or none of these things, we are Redskins. Whether we are first in our class or last in our class, we are Redskins. Whether we are staying close to home, attending college out of state, getting a job out of high school or enlisting in the armed force, we are Redskins.”
Welcome back, Union Redskin alumni! Union Public Schools invites you to reconnect with your alma mater, former classmates and old teachers. We also would love for you to visit, watch our games and shows, participate in activities and volunteer your talents. You are Redskins for Life, after all!
Union offer offers a number of ways for you to reconnect and we keep making improvements.
Union Alumni Center
In 2012, Union opened the Union Alumni Center, located in the main entry area for the High School. The center features memorabilia from throughout the district’s history as well as computer access to all the yearbooks as well as old photos. Union plans to keep updating the center, adding video from former alumni and staff members.
Class reunions are coordinated by alumni, who plan reunions, special functions and maintain contact information of former classmates. Union Public Schools provides a calendar to post events and may post additional information as it becomes aware of them. Union does not oversee or plan reunions. Union will work with alumni for special arrangements, such as providing tours of school buildings, for reunions, but it does not always know when reunions may be scheduled unless someone contacts the District or plans to hold reunion activities on Union property.
Connect with Alumni Facebook
If you are coordinating an alumni event and need information or wish to post something on Union’s alumni calendar, please contact us!

THANK YOU! Bond issue passes; voters 'Believe in U'
YAY, WE DID IT!! Thanks to our wonderful community, Union successfully passed its first 5-year bond! This from Superintendent Kirt Hartzler:
“I am extremely grateful to belong to a community that understands the importance of investing in our students and teachers. Voters overwhelmingly supported our district’s five-year series bond, the first in Union’s history. Passage of the two measures will allow us to complete the construction of Ellen Ochoa Elementary and fund a new Fine Arts, Athletic and classroom renovation at Union High School. We’re excited about the introduction of our one-to-one initiative for our students and improved safety on our buses. Our theme was ‘Believing in U,’ and clearly, our families believe in Union’s mission of ‘100% Graduation, College and Career Ready.’ Thank you!”continue reading

Attention Union High School students away in college! Voters Encouraged To Apply Early for Absentee Ballots for Upcoming Election
Message to Voters from the Superintendent
Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler: "This year, we are seeking your approval of a $128.6-million, five-year series bond that will not raise taxes above traditional levels. Multi-year bonds have become a standard in Oklahoma, as they provide for greater efficiency in planning larger capital projects. A single campaign spanning five years helps our district save money by not having an election every year. While this is a change from the familiarity of an annual bond election, this five-year general obligation bond will allow Union to be more efficient in the planning, sequencing, and building of these projects. It’s the smart thing to do. " continue reading
