Union Public Schools buses are not running Thursday or Friday because of staffing issues from COVID-19.

About 45% of the district’s entire transportation department — including mechanics and office staff — is currently in isolation or quarantine for the illness.

The suspension of service affects about 2,500 students. Tulsa Tech students who catch a bus from Union High School will not be affected. 

Union secondary school and Boevers Elementary students are currently on distance learning because of staffing shortages from COVID-19.
