Public Hearing for Regular Board Meeting October 10, 2023 at 7:00 PM.
Rainy, cozy fall day? 🍂 Students still need to attend school! If your child is trying to convince you they should stay home, remember that every day at school counts toward their success. Missing 2 days a month makes your child chronically absent. We want your child at school so they don't "fall" behind! 🧡
Families! Did you know MSUSD subscribes to a 24/7 reading program for your child? Every MSUSD student can now access over 3,000 online books and news articles to read! The best part is that every book your child chooses from his/her library is at his/her reading level. Research shows that in order for students to make growth in their reading they must be reading 20-30 minutes a day within their Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). We encourage every student to read at least 20-minutes every day. The Renaissance Learning myON program is a great way for your child to choose from a wide variety of interest books at his/her level and take an embedded comprehension assessment to follow. Have your student log in to their AR account here using the same password they use at school. https://global-zone05.renaissance-go.com/welcomeportal/711719 Here is a video for you to learn all about myON! https://renaissance.widen.net/view/video/mq6ghmv8bv/Meet-%EF%BF%BCmyON-for-Parents-and-Families.mp4?u=zbhbc2%EF%BF%BC%EF%BF%BCThank Happy reading!

Dear MSUSD Families, We want to let you know that we are constantly discussing and practicing safety protocols. We are frequently in close communication with the Mount Shasta Police Department and have a safety plan that includes them. Moreover, we are committed to communicating information to you that is necessary and timely. Now is a good time to remind you that if we were ever in an emergency situation, you would receive information as soon as it would be safe to do so. It is vital you listen to your message rather than calling the office to see what the message said. Doing so will tie up the phone lines. In addition, it is not safe to come to the site, as we may be in an emergency situation. Immediate communication will be given to you stating further directions. We are saddened and concerned by the current state of affairs. MSUSD will continue to make the safety of our students and staff our number one priority, along with timely communication to all of you. If you have any questions, please contact your site principal or Superintendent Beall at 530-926-6007
There will be a Regular Board Meeting on Tuesday, September 12, 2023. Closed Session will begin at 6:00 PM and Open Session will begin at 7:00 PM, located in the Education Center.

Attendance is vital for the success of your child. Please send your child to school unless they are experiencing one of the symptoms listed below. Make appointments for later in the day or after school. If you are going out of town, send your child to school for as long as possible. Every minute of their education counts! Develop healthy routines while they are young. They will last a lifetime!
MSUSD Families, Please note the following bus changes: For this Weds.- Friday we will not have an afternoon bus run. Next week: Monday: morning and afternoon route both running. Tuesday: morning route only running. All following days are covered, both in the morning and afternoon, unless an unforeseen conflict arises. If this creates a hardship for your family, please call the school office.

Dear Families, Aug. 21, 2023 The entire staff at MSUSD would like to welcome you to the 2023-2024 academic year! We are so excited to share this journey with you. We have had many positive changes that are in place for your child this year. First, we have a new bus! Please wave at bus 23 as you drive by. It is air conditioned and has seat belts! Next, we have a new 50% English Language Teacher to assist our students whose home language is not English. Laurel Kessler will be teaching these students for 30 minutes daily. We also added a School Improvement Coordinator position, with Mr. Belzer leading the charge. We are excited to have his drive, determination, and expertise assisting the staff and students with improved academics and attendance. This is in addition to his principal duties at MSE. We also hired a Community Schools Coordinator. Jessica Sanchez will be primarily focused on opening a preschool for the 24-25 school year! She will also help in translation services and resources for all families. We are so happy she has joined our team. Also hired is Angie Danel, or Miss Angie as the students call her, as Secretary at MSE. We also hired many new instructional aides as well as a new Kindergarten Teacher, a 4th Grade Teacher, and a Bridges Teacher. Look for communication via emails, Sisson and Mount Shasta Elementary’s Facebook pages, our website, and for more important and timely information, we will send out a group text and/or phone call. As always, please reach out to the office if you have any questions, or your site administrator. We are here to support you and your child in any way we can. Here’s to an amazing year! Warmly, Tami Beall Superintendent
Happy 1st day of school! We are looking forward to a great year with our MSUSD students and families! 💙🍎
