Solar Eclipse Event

Solar Eclipse Update:


With the assistance of county, city officials, local police and our transportation provider, the Union R-XI School District has continued to monitor the upcoming Solar Eclipse on Aug. 21.

Recently, MoDOT issued a statement to expect extreme congestion on many roadways in the area on this day and particularly in the afternoon once the Eclipse event concludes.

Local and county emergency service personnel have been very helpful, but since this is truly a "once-in-a lifetime event", they admit that due to the "unknown", it is impossible for them to know how quickly they will be able to respond to any request for aid should an emergency occur.

As a result, we agree with our local emergency management and transportation personnel regarding erring on the side of caution. Therefore, it has been decided by the Board of Education and District Administration to close all Union R-XI schools on Aug. 21.

We will still be teaching about the Solar Eclipse prior to the event and will be sending glasses home with each student on Friday, Aug. 18.

We understand that any decision we make will affect everyone differently, however, our top priority is and always will be student and staff safety.

Please enjoy the day and be safe. #unionrxi
