Welcome to Central Union High School

March 16, 2020
Residents of the Central Union High School District,
The safety and wellbeing of students, families, and school personnel are the highest priorities of the Central Union High School District, and all Imperial County schools and districts. As of March 16, 2020, there are 2 presumptively positive cases of the COVID-19 disease. In advance of more COVID-19 cases that could follow, our District, in conjunction with all Imperial County School District Superintendents and the Imperial County Office of Education have decided in concurrence with the Imperial County Public Health Department to CLOSE all Central Union High School District schools tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, 2020 through Wednesday, April 8, 2020. Our regularly scheduled Spring Break will take place from Thursday, April 9, 2020 through Friday, April 17, 2020.
At this time, we anticipate classes will resume on Monday, April 20, 2020. We will reassess the situation by April 15th, 2020 whether a further extension of school closures will be necessary.
Imperial County Public Health Officer, Or. Stephen Munday, reports that while the current cases of COVID-19 are presumptively positive and travel related, with no evidence of community transmission in Imperial County at this time, these numbers may grow in the coming days and weeks which may require a more lengthy closure and/or additional measures.
We will send out notices with further information regarding resources for our students to receive direction and gather educational materials from their teachers. Our staff will work together throughout the closure to provide vital services and resources our schools offer to our community, including, but not limited to, meal programs.
Schools will be contacting families promptly about services available to them throughout the closure.
Our food services staff will be preparing "grab and go" meals for students, in keeping with our normal Summer meal practices. We will be sending out additional information regarding times for meal pick-up at our schools.
While we recognize this decision will pose significant challenges and hardship to many families in our county, an effective way to slow and disrupt the transmission of this pandemic is by implementing social distancing practices. During the time of the school closure, we are asking that students and families follow the County Public Health Officer's recommendation to stay home and minimize social contact to the extent possible. Protecting public health requires a community-wide response, and we will need the help of families to remain united in our response.
While children have not been shown to be a high-risk group for serious illness from COVID-19, they are still able to transmit the virus to populations who are most vulnerable to serious illness, such as older adults and those with compromised immune systems. Please encourage students to avoid large public gatherings such as malls, movie theaters, and other spaces, especially those that are indoors.
We understand that these closures will be challenging and disruptive, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation. We are grateful to community members throughout our county for their tremendous efforts during these challenging times. This is a dynamic situation where information and circumstances can evolve quickly.

Principal Message

Dear Parents, Students, Alumni and Friends,

As the Principal of Central Union High School, I am looking forward to another great year.  It is an honor to work with over 1900 students and nearly 160 staff members to ensure a positive and rewarding experience for your student. Central Union High School is proud of our rich history of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic programs designed to benefit and advance student curricular and extracurricular achievements.  We offer a variety of course offerings and pathways that are rigorous and supported by wonderful staff members working to ensure students’ academic success.  Additionally, our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular and co-curricular activities that allow our students to showcase their talents throughout the year from athletic teams, Robotics Team,  cheerleading, tall flags, majorettes, Spar-teens and The Great Spartan Band to just name a few. 

This year (and every year), the students and staff of Central Union will work towards shaping the future of our students by developing skills, abilities, and knowledge. The Central Union staff believes that teaching above and beyond the standards helps ensure all students are Career and College Ready. Central Union is very proud of our rich traditions and we look forward to providing a safe and positive learning environment for all students. Help us encourage your students to become involved in our programs outside of the regular school day. Student organizations, clubs, and athletics all promote and support school community involvement and academic success.

I look forward to working with the many families that trust the Central Union staff to educate and care for their students. The administration team is always available to meet and discuss school issues or the individual progress of any student with parents, guardians, and the students themselves. Additionally, our excellent counselors and other support staff make themselves available at all times to assist in supporting our students’ experience.

To make the school year the best for you and your student please support Central Union High School in any way you can. Consider becoming part of the Spartan family, by joining the Spartan Athletic Club, our Band Booster club, or volunteering for help with school events and activities. I look forward to making the high school experience a positive and memorable one for you and your student. We hope to see you at our many activities that make high school a great experience!  On behalf of the staff here at Central Union, thanks for supporting us and your student and making this a great year!
