Uniontown USD 235 has teacher in-service  Aug. 23-25 with an open house from 4-6 p.m. on Aug. 25

The first day of school is Thursday, August 26.

New teachers this year are Linda Rogers who will be teaching first/second grade, April Stock who will teach fifth grade and Stephanie Defebaugh who will teach pre-kindergarten.

The USD 235 Board of Education passed in a 6 to 1 vote,  its 2021-22 Operational Guidelines on Monday, August 9.  The approved guidelines may be accessed on the link

“Masks will be highly recommended but not required inside all USD 235 buildings,” Superintendent Bret Howard said.  “Masks will be required on all school-provided transportation.  A federal mandate on all public transportation was enacted over the summer that includes school busses and school vehicles.”

New this year is a restroom and concession area.

The former restroom and concession area, in the old superintendent’s office south of the football field, now houses the Girard Medical Center Clinic in Uniontown.

The district is working on replacing the restrooms/concession facility.

“There will be a concession stand and bathroom built on the northwest side of the home football bleachers,” Howard said.  “We have taken the fence down and will be starting construction soon.”
