The mission of the Union School District, in harmony with our community, is to educate and empower students to become continuous learners in an environment which ensures that each student gains knowledge and skills, self-motivation and related positive attitudes necessary to compete equitably with peers locally and globally towards meaningful and productive lives.
As a reminder, November the 24th and December the 23rd will both be early dismissal (half days) for students.
The School Nurse's Office would like to welcome back our Union School District students for the 2021-2022 school year!  As we begin the year, please be advised that The Pennsylvania Department of Health's School Immunization requirements must be met by September 1, 2021 (the 5th day of the school year), or students risk exclusion from school.  Please submit your child's immunization records to the nurse at either Sligo Elementary or Union High School by Tuesday August 31, 2021.  Immunizations are required by the State of Pennsylvania Department of Health upon entry into school, 7th grade, and 12th grade.  If your child is entering for the first time or is going into the 7th or 12th grades, please check their immunization records to be sure they are current.  Letters were sent home in May to students that need immunizations for the upcoming school year, per the State's requirements.  If you have any questions about your child's immunization status, please contact your child's Nurse's Office.
