Holmes Named Varsity Women's Softball Coach

The Union Academy Athletic Department is excited to announce that Darbi Holmes has been named as the new Varsity Women's Softball Coach. Darbi is new to the Union Academy staff this year serving in her role as a Middle School PE teacher, though she is not new to the UA family. Darbi was a student at Union Academy as well as a member of the UA softball team. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience of the game, and we are excited for her to bring this to a very talented softball program.

Health Services

Masks are required indoors for all K-12 students, staff, parents, and visitors. The Board will reassess the requirement at the October 14 regular board meeting.

Please keep your child home if they are sick or have ANY symptoms of Covid-19 (congestion, headache, sore throat, cough).

Contact the nurses if your child or anyone in the home tests positive for Covid or if your child has been exposed/in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid.

Remind your child to practice physical distancing, wear a mask indoors at school consistently, and wash their hands.

The UA Covid Dashboard is available on the website.

We ask your assistance to complete a short survey on UA’s return to campus during Covid. The survey is required by the federal government because UA received a grant relating to Covid during the pandemic. We welcome your input on this survey, which will be posted on the website for one month.
