SafeSchools Alert

A safe and secure school environment is essential to the learning process. An important ingredient in achieving safe and secure schools remains alert eyes and ears. Safety is achieved when an atmosphere exists in which students are comfortable talking with adults about their concerns.

SafeSchools Alert is our district's tip reporting service. If you have information about a threat to our safety, do your part and report it. And remember, you can remain anonymous. See Social Media Safety

Suicide Prevention - 918-744-4800

Family & Children's Services is a member of the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, making it part of a network of more than 140 crisis centers across the country providing counseling and mental health referrals 24 hours a day.

The agency's COPES handles all calls made in the Tulsa area.

"It's so important to be able to assist these callers on a local level with the emotional support and care they need," said Stacie Barnett, director of COPES, which stands for Community Outreach Psychiatric Emergency Services. "We have firsthand knowledge of our resources and the ability to mobilize when needed to assist individuals in crisis.

"It adds extra value to have people familiar with local resources and providers and the local stressors and barriers that people face. We'll be able to better get people to the access and care they need."

According to the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people in Oklahoma, and 15 percent of youth surveyed in Oklahoma report that they have seriously considered suicide.

The national hotline can be reached at (800) 273-8255. To call the COPES line directly, call 744-4800.

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.
