November Notes

Veterans Day Assembly

We had a wonderful Veterans Day Assembly on Monday, November 9th. Thank you Veterans for your service!

Rebel Pride

We had our first Rebel Pride Assembly of the school year on Friday, November 15th. We celebrated our students for all the wonderful things they are doing, including earning Golden Tickets and those with Perfect Attendance! A special thank you to the Wells Fire Department for coming to present toy fire trucks to our Fire Prevention Week winners.

A Time to Be Thankful

Mrs. Jacobson had a special Thanksgiving treat for her ELL and Rebel Time students... Turkey Cookies! Her message was as she shared the cookies was "I am thankful to be your teacher." She spent Thanksgiving week teaching the concept of thankfulness and for most of her ELL students, butterscotch was a new word and new flavor!

Flexible Learning Day Information

This August the USC School Board once again approved a plan to implement up to three Flexible Learning Days in the event of emergency closings during the school year. With the plan in place, students and teachers will do school work from home on up to three days when Flexible Learning is implemented.

PK-4 students will complete hands-on learning activities during the day and online work if students have WiFi and devices available. Students in grades 5-12 will log into Schoology, USC’s online learning site, and communicate with teachers to complete the tasks assigned. These potential days away from the school building would not be rescheduled as face-to-face school days.

Families and students will be notified in several ways that a Flexible Learning Day has been called: through the school messaging system from Superintendent Fleming, via the school website, via the school’s official Facebook page, and, if possible, in conjunction with the school closing announcements on television and radio.

Transportation Changes


If there is a change in your child's regular transportation schedule, please continue to put a note in your child's planner so their teacher knows. We would also like to ask that you contact the elementary office. Your child's safety is our number one priority!
