Union Public Schools Trademarks and Trade Names

The Board of Education recognizes the importance of protecting its trademarks and trade names from unauthorized use.  It is, therefore, the policy of the Board to implement a trademark registration and licensing policy as follows: All of the trademarks, service marks, trade name logos and/or symbols of Union Public Schools including, but not limited to, the names “Union Public Schools” and “Union Redskins” are registered trademarks with the Secretary of State, State of Oklahoma, or are entitled to protection under the common law.  It is the policy of the Board to actively defend their trademark status.  Any use of a Union Public Schools trademark must have prior written approval of the Superintendent or designee and must be produced, manufactured, or sold under license by Union Public Schools.

Board of Education Policy 1700
Revised 12/10/07


The design of each registered Union logo must remain intact.  No alterations, additions or deletions to any part of the logo are permitted without written permission from the Superintendent or designee.

The registration notice    is part of the logo and must be included in the place indicated on each logo.  The use of more than one specific type of Union logo in a particular publication or flyer is discouraged.

Acceptable colors for Union logos are solid red, white, black and silver, used individually or in combination of the four.

In the case of the “Split U” logo – most commonly used in athletics, in spirit-related materials, and on uniforms – the black or the darker color should be on the left side, and the red or the lighter color should be on the right side.  Non-solid colors, designs, or patterns such as distressed, camouflage, animal prints, stars and stripes, starbursts, hearts, rhinestones, etc., are not permitted.  Nor may words or graphics be placed on top of the logo.

Generally the district U, also described as the concentric U logo, is used to represent the Union district as a whole and is, therefore, used on buildings, in district publications and on district stationery.  Unlike the Split U logo, words and graphics may be placed on the district U with design approval from the Superintendent or designee.

The “Redskin Logo” is most often associated with Union’s secondary schools and the elementary schools which have adopted the Redskin mascot.  The image of the mascot may only be used in front of the district concentric U logo as pictured.


Recognizing there are many shades of red, the color considered “Union Red” is a bright red listed as the following:

Pantone #186 or #200 (depending on the texture or material) in the Pantone Formula Guide Color Deck for publications, T-shirts, and novelty items; and

Pantone #19-1763 TPX Formula One in the Pantone Architecture and Interiors Color Deck for walls, buildings, and more permanent structures.
Approval Process

All requests for logos/registered names use must be made in writing, preferably by email, at least two weeks in advance of the inquirer’s deadline.  The request should include:

  •  Applicant’s name, organization, title, and contact     
  •  Specific logo/name requested;
  •  Purpose (group fundraiser, partnership identification,    promotion, etc.);
  •  Medium in which it will be used (on clothing, novelty    items, in flyers, publications, etc.);

All logo/name requests for use in publications – including flyers, advertisements, websites, etc. – should be directed to:

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.
