Phone & Text Messaging

Parents tell us Union’s automated phone messaging system is a great way to announce weather-related school closings, upcoming events, and important information. 

For your convenience, we have also added a district phone message replay line where you can access recent messages sent to you by the district and/or the school your student(s) attend(s).  The Union Connect-ED Message Line is 918-357-6210.  The system searches the database by the phone number of the telephone you use to call the message line and gives you the choice of the last nine messages sent to that phone.

To ensure you receive these important messages, please make sure you notify us when your phone number or email address changes.  You can quickly update your phone number through the Campus Parent Portal under Household Information.  Email and preferred language preferences can be adjusted through the Campus Parent Portal under Contact Preferences.   It is very important we have the most current and accurate contact information for the safety of your child.  If you need assistance with updating contact information , you can call Bibi Davila at the Enrollment Center at 918-357-6150 or 918-357-6154.

The message line is also the number to use if you do not have students in the district and we are calling you by mistake.  Simply leave your number and a request that it be removed from our list. 

Text Messaging

Union offers text messaging services to patrons and staff who have opted in to received messages through the district’s Connect-ED system.

The first time Union sends you a text message, the following pops up on your screen:
"UNIONPUBLIC:  You are now subscribed to receive text alerts. Reply HELP for help,  STOP UPS to cancel. Msg&data rates may apply."

  •  If you type back HELP, you will receive the message:
    "BbConnect Info Alerts: 2msgs/mo. Msg&data rates may apply. Reply STOP to cancel. Info: www.blackboardconnect.com/sms/terms.asp, 888-599-2720."
  • If you type STOP UPS, but decide later you would like to opt back in, text SUBSCRIBE UNIONPUBLIC to 23177 or 63079.

  •  

Note: If a person tries to subscribe who  is not part of the contact database, he or she will receive the message:  "BbConnect Info Alerts: You have not followed the Opt In/Out process correctly." 

In order to opt in and receive messages, please contact the Union Communications Department at 918-357-6015 or email Barbara Swinburne, our Communications administrative assistant,  and ask to be included.

Last Day of School is May 22

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:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
