Union schools aiming for free meals for students
Many of you have seen schools providing grab-and-go meals for students in their district and are probably wondering why Union has not made any announcement about offering these meals.
I have been working with Tina Hanna, Union’s Food Services Directorand the state office. Some of the surrounding school districts were pre-approved because of their percentage of students who qualify for free reduced price meals and were already approved for the summer meals program. They were able to be fast-tracked through the approval process at the Department of Education.
In the meantime, two area churches have stepped up to provide meals for our students.

hesitate to reach out to the school district with any questions or
concerns. Even though we cannot have our doors open, we
committed to our students and families.
Dear Knight Families,
As we continue into uncharted territory, we have been making decisions that we feel are in the best interest of the students, staff and our communities. Some of the bigger decisions have been handed down to us from the State and we are complying for the greater good of all, and now we are charged with making local choices on how best to proceed the next three weeks, possibly longer.
