USC Elementary

Rebel Review - November 2020

Rebel Rights - Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe

October Notes

Our students and staff have done an outstanding job staying safe! We are consistently wearing masks, hand sanitizing, and cleaning our high use areas. A reminder to parents - please wash your child's mask daily!

Thank you for continually supporting our elementary fundraiser. We were able to earn more than $15,000 to be used to enhance learning opportunities for students at United South Central Elementary. Your support is greatly appreciated!

On October 14th our staff had an extra workday to help meet the needs of all learners. The school board recently approved November 13th as a planned Flexible Learning Day to provide more time for our staff to meet the challenges of teaching and learning in the Covid age. We appreciate your flexibility as we modify and adjust to best meet everyone's needs!

Homecoming Week is November 2-6!
