Union officials said this will allow for the district to make plans for staffing, schedules and safety measures.

Parents are being asked to complete the electronic form for each child that is enrolled in the Union district. The forms are available in both English and Spanish.

So far we have been pleased with the way the first semester has gone, as our students and staff have been diligent in their efforts to make in-person school as safe as possible. With fully one-third of our students working from home, this has provided us with greater flexibility when it comes to physical distancing. That, combined with mandatory mask-wearing, has helped us to limit exposure to Covid-19. We have been very fortunate in that we have not yet had to close any school buildings, but we continue to closely monitor the situation daily.
Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler, Union Public Schools

District officials said virtual learning is a semester commitment and parents are able to change at the semester. For Fall 2020, officials said around 35 percent of students in the district enrolled in virtual learning and 65 percent participated in in-person learning.
