Supplier Information and Registration

Qualified and responsible suppliers are an important, valued and necessary resource for maintaining an effective teaching and learning environment here at Union Public Schools.  
Before a supplier can do business with the school district, the supplier must register with the District’s Purchasing and Accounting Departments. 

To be considered, a prospective supplier must: 

  • Complete and submit a signed Supplier Application / Master Memorandum of Understanding
  • Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the supplier registration form
  • Agree to accept school district purchase orders
  • Agree to payment terms of 45 days without penalty of interest or late fees
  • Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the school district’s purchase order

Suppliers do not need to submit multiple applications.  All applications will be reviewed by the Accounting and Purchasing Departments. Supplier Registration and Commodity Bid Listing may be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to 918-357-6066. 

Potential suppliers who have submitted a commodity bid list sheet with their supplier application will be added to the Purchasing Department’s bidders’ database.  Submission and acceptance of a supplier’s application is not a guarantee of future business or bid award.

Sex offenders and violent offenders not permitted to work on school premises.

In order to do business with the district, suppliers must agree to comply with provisions of Oklahoma Statutes, Title 57 § 589 and Title 70 § 6-101.48.  Suppliers must agree not to knowingly or willfully permit any employee to work with or provide services to children or work on school premises if said employee or person is registered pursuant to the Oklahoma Sex Offenders Registration Act or the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders Registration Act. 

Supplier compliance with these laws shall be evidenced by signing the Supplier Application or accepting and fulfilling a school district purchase order. 

Purchase orders

All school district purchase transactions will be conducted through the issuance of a Union Public Schools centrally processed and issued purchase order. Suppliers should not accept and process orders without obtaining the “Vendor” copy of the purchase order.

Free Drive-Thru Meals for Children

Union Schools is offering FREE drive-thru meal pick-ups at three locations. Details

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
