Union Wellness

A Healthy Environment Is Great for Learning and Working!

Developing an optimal learning environment for students begins with a focus on faculty and staff quality.  Union Public Schools is an organization that values excellence and strives to provide benefits and a working environment for all employees to recruit, hire and retain the best staff possible.  Like us on Facebook!

A healthy and productive workforce invested in wellness provides good role models for students and contributes to organizational efficiency.  Since our district offers a self-insured PPO plan for employee health insurance, lower health care costs directly contribute to the resources available for the district’s main mission – the education of our students. That is why Union Public Schools has developed partnerships to support the health and wellness of our employees.

Get Healthy with The Y at Union

The Y at Union

Union Public Schools has partnered with the YMCA of Greater Tulsa to manage the Wellness Center at the UMAC, bringing with it fun-filled, health-enhancing opportunities for you and the whole family! See The Y at Union web page.

Besides expert instruction on the UMAC’s top-notch equipment, the climbing wall, and temperature-controlled indoor walking track, the Y at Union is offering free onsite classes, workshops, activities, and programs. As an added bonus, full- and part-time Union employees may upgrade their Y at Union membership to the Metro Y membership at a specially discounted rate*!

The Clinic

In continuing our emphasis on staff health and wellness, Union is very proud of our partnership with OU Physicians Tulsa providing The Clinic for Union’s more than 2,000 employees and their covered dependents.

District Wellness Policy

Union Public Schools recognizes the relationship between academic achievement and student health and wellness.  Union has developed a District Wellness Policy that guides the health and wellness activities, foods, and nutrition and physical education provided by the District for students and staff.  We have a District Wellness Council that is responsible for reviewing, updating and evaluating the implementation of the Wellness Policy.  If you would like to participate in this Council, please contact Lisa Griffin at 918-357-6132.  View the assessment of implementation of the District Wellness Policy at each school site.

United Way Campaign

Once again, September will be a “Month of Giving” at Union Public Schools. We appreciate the generosity of Union students, families, teachers and staff as we raise funds for the 59 partner agencies of the Tulsa Area United Way. Thank you for joining in the fun as we support the United Way’s mission of uniting people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

September is School Attendance Awareness Month

School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer. A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming. If you have a comment, please email us.
