May 16 is an Optional Teacher Workday

Union County Public Schools will close for students on Wednesday, May 16 and the day will become an Optional Teacher Workday.

As of Thursday, May 10, more than 1,000 UCPS teachers have requested leave from school on May 16. This number of absences creates safety and security concerns for our schools.

Please review the following updates about schedules, testing, etc.

  • End-of-Grade, End-of-Year and Advanced Placement testing for May 16 will be rescheduled.
  • Marvin Ridge High will administer International Baccalaureate (IB) exams as planned.
