Our goal in the Eureka USD is to encourage good health habits with our staff, students and families in order to foster good health and help prevent the spread of communicable diseases. Diseases, such as influenza, pertussis (whooping cough), enterovirus- D68, and Ebola have been featured in the news media recently.

The Eureka USD Health Services and administrative team, in collaboration with Placer County Health and Human Services and the Placer County Office of Education, will continue to monitor current information about these health issues and follow guidelines provided by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). Please review the helpful information from Placer County Health and Human Services in the following attachment. Thank you very much for your cooperation in keeping our schools healthy places to learn.

The Olympus staff is committed to providing a variety of instructional supports based upon the individual needs of each student. We recognize that students learn at different rates and may need additional support at different points in the curriculum.  Our school-wide supports are as follows:

Math Lab                      
Math Lab is a "Math Specific" study hall that is led by our Math teachers. Students are welcome to attend any Math Lab session.
Tuesday   7:00-7:45 AM    Rm C2
Wednesday   2:25-3:10 PM    Rm C3
Thursday  7:00-7:45 AM    RM C1
Study Hall                        
Study Hall will be held in the Library.
*Monday  1:20-2:20    This is a great place for our student athletes to go while waiting for their 2:20 practice. 
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday   2:20-3:20
 

As you continue to support your student’s immediate progress in each of his/her classes, we recommend that you check teacher’s websites.  Each teacher updates individual class websites to provide an overview of current work and assignments.  This is a great way to empower yourself as a parent when checking the planner and/or engaging in conversations with your child about his/her homework assignments for the day.

In order to effectively monitor your student’s improvement and academic progress, we recommend that you check your student’s grades on a weekly basis.  You can access your student’s grades by logging on to Power School: https://powerschool.eureka-usd.k12.ca.us/public/. You can also sign-up for weekly emails through Power School that will notify you of your student’s current academic progress and grades. Please contact the school if you have lost your username and/or password.

We are very proud of the support options that our school has to offer our students.  We look forward to working closely with you and your student to strengthen his/her academic skills.
