We are thankful we have been able to stay with the in-person learning model this year.  To help us sustain this model, which includes both in-person and distance learners, the school board approved Wednesday, October 14th, as a non-instructional teacher workday.  There will be no instruction (in-person or distance learning), meal deliveries, or child care on this day. We appreciate the cooperation, flexibility, and support you have offered as we continue to navigate teaching and learning in the age of Covid-19. School will resume on Tuesday, October 20th Thank You and Stay Safe! USC Admin Team
