School To Remain Closed Until At Least April 3


Posted Date: 03/17/2020

School To Remain Closed Until At Least April 3

This afternoon at 4 p.m., the Oklahoma State Department of Education closed all Oklahoma schools beginning March 17 through April 6 in response to rising concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

As a result, all Union schools will be closed through Friday, April 3. While we will continue to monitor the situation very closely and keep you apprised, I would advise families to anticipate that schools may be closed even longer. Download this letter

The Spring Break Extended Day program at Jefferson Elementary planned for this week will be closed effective immediately. So it will not be available beginning Tuesday, March 17. We will provide refunds for the four unused days (more information to come).

District office and school buildings will be closed starting on Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, April 3.

Union may provide students “grab and go” meals beginning Monday, March 23. We will have more information on pickup locations and times at the end of the week. 

According to Superintendent Hofmeister, the closure of all public schools in Oklahoma includes the suspension of all instructional activities, grading, and extracurricular activities. There will be no Tulsa Technology Center courses for Union students. Tulsa Community College students should refer to TCC communications.

We will continue to provide updates about our district’s response to COVID-19 on our district website at https://www.unionps.org/Coronavirus. Frequently asked questions are posted here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1967/union_corona_virus_faq.pdf. In addition to the website, we will continue to provide updates via phone, email, Facebook and Twitter.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. We will respond just as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, we apologize for any inconvenience. Please take care of your families and, above all else, be safe and limit your exposure to other people.

Sincerely,
 

Kirt Hartzler, Ed.D.
Superintendent

At-Home Assignments

School buildings will remain closed, but Union is committed to resuming your student’s learning.  Our intent is to provide a positive academic experience for students without overwhelming parents, and to engage all populations of students, even those who may not have access to the latest technology at home.

At-Home Assignments will be posted on this page by Friday evening of each week through May 15.
