Homecoming 2019

September 30 - October 4 was Homecoming Week at USC. We had great participation for dress-up days and door decorating. We ended the week with a great pepfest!

USC Elementary Makerspace

USC Elementary students will begin Makerspace activities on Monday, November 4th. Students will go to the media center to take part in Makerspace activities on a rotational basis. We can't wait to see what our students will create during this time!

USC Elementary Makerspace Vision Statement

The USC Elementary Makerspace is a place for students to unlock creativity and imagination through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) based projects. These projects help students turn knowledge into action in a hands-on, innovate environment designed to promote both individual and team-based learning.

USC Elementary’s Makerspace will support United South Central School’s Mission Statement of Establishing Opportunities for Tomorrow’s Learning… Today!

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!

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.
