Check out our live camera of the stadium construction project.
High School Campus Remodeling project – The 5-year bond on which this project is based passed in February of 2018. The bond contains $42,475,000 for District Fine Arts, Athletics, Classroom, and Stadium Renovation and Construction including FF&E (Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment) for the High School campus. Since May of 2018 architects, engineers, and Union staff have been working on the plans. The project scope is outlined at the link.
Stadium Construction Work – Union has begun demolition on at Union’s Tuttle Stadium, paving the way toward a brand-new “home” side with improved accessibility, concessions and restroom facilities, and a revitalized east side. Union will add a Fine Arts wing to the north side of the stadium to better serve band students, and provide improved weight room and locker facilities for athletics, as well as new space for wrestling, volleyball, spirit, and golf. The project scope is outlined at the link.

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