Union-Endicott Community,

Although these past few months have been challenging, we recognize the importance of a strong school-community collaboration, and we look forward to serving you in the 2020-21 school year. Thank you to the district office staff for collecting ballots and preparing an organized process for the opening of ballots on June 16, and a special thanks to the 17 election inspectors who helped to verify and count over 5,000 ballots from 5 p.m. until midnight. Here are the final results:

EDUCATION

New information: 

  • You will find our remote summer enrichment program guide, for students who will enter grades 1-12, on our website.

Ongoing information: 

  • Union-Endicott parents and guardians of K-11 students: To close the 2019-2020 school year, we need to verify that your student has their district-issued Chromebook and charger. You will receive an email invitation from Shannon Gillette, the district tech director, requesting that you "accept our invitation to use FamilyID to register" your student (one invitation and registration per student) for Chromebook Verification. If you did not accept a district-issued Chromebook, you can indicate this on the form. Please follow the email directions to complete the registration. If you do not receive an email, please check your SPAM or JUNK email folders. If you cannot find it there, please contact Shannon Gillette at [email protected] for assistance. Note: This fall, you will receive another invitation to again register that you have the Chromebook and charger before the 2020-2021 school year starts.    
  • Due to the pandemic, the speech screenings for incoming kindergartners will be rescheduled in the summer. 
  • The 2020-21 School Calendar is now available on the main page of the website.
  • Do you need tech support for your child's Chromebook? Please call Service Now at 607-766-3800.
