Board of Education Approves Calendar Changes

Union’s Board of Education unanimously approved changes to the school calendar at a special meeting last night, Monday, February 22. Due to the recent disruptions caused by severe winter weather, elementary students (grades K-5) will have 9 minutes added to every school day beginning Monday, March 1, and their last day of school will be Friday, May 28.  The school day will now start at 7:35 a.m. and end at 2:29 p.m. for elementary students (instead of starting at 7:40 a.m. and ending at 2:25 p.m.).

April 2, which was originally for parent-teacher conferences, will become a “Virtual Day” for all students – both elementary and secondary.  All Union students will work from home on April 2.

“Secondary students participated virtually or worked the distance learning plan from home during the Snow Days, so they do not have as many days to make up,” said Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler.  “We will not be adding minutes to the school day for grades 6-12.” 

The last day of school for secondary students (grades 6-12) will be Tuesday, May 25.

La Mesa Directiva de Unión aprueba los cambios de calendario

La Junta de Educación de Union aprobó por unanimidad los cambios en el calendario escolar en una reunión especial anoche. Debido a las interrupciones recientes causadas por el severo clima invernal, los estudiantes de primaria (grados K-5) tendrán 9 minutos agregados a cada día escolar a partir del lunes 1 de marzo y su último día de clases será el viernes 28 de mayo. El día escolar ahora comenzará a las 7:35 am y terminará a las 2:29 pm para estudiantes de primaria (en lugar de comenzar a las 7:40 a.m. y terminar a las 2:25 p.m.).

El 2 de abril, que originalmente era para las conferencias de padres y maestros, se convertirá en un “Día Virtual” para todos los estudiantes, tanto de primaria como de secundaria. Todos los estudiantes de Union trabajarán desde casa el 2 de abril.

“Los estudiantes de secundaria participaron virtualmente o trabajaron en el plan de aprendizaje a distancia desde casa durante los Días de Nieve, por lo que no tienen tantos días para recuperar”, dijo el Superintendente Dr. Kirt Hartzler. "No agregaremos minutos al día escolar para los grados 6-12".

El último día de clases para los estudiantes de secundaria (grados 6-12) será el martes 25 de mayo.
