December Notes

December absolutely flew by! We had a great time at USC Elementary celebrating the holidays in our classrooms and at our concerts! We also had a lot a fun with our school-wide behavior instruction through PBIS. A big thank you to our high school students who came to our classrooms to read Decibella and teach us about the appropriate voice levels in our different school settings.

Winter Weather

Parents - Please send your child to school dressed appropriately for the weather. As a general rule, we go outside for recess if the wind chill is 0 degrees or above. Please make sure your child has a winter jacket, hat, gloves/mittens at minimum. Snowpants and winter boots are highly encouraged!

If you need assistance in obtaining some of these items, please contact one of our School Social Workers - Jen Crawford ( or Melissa Haugh ( via email or call 507-553-5810.

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!
