Dear USD #416 Wildcat Family,
We did it! We have navigated a very challenging school year and have had many accomplishments to be proud of throughout the school district! It wasn’t easy, but by sticking to our “We Are All In It Together” motto, we had a successful school year despite the incredible challenges! I appreciate the community’s support to our teachers and staff during this past year. Our district is appreciative of all of the support you have provided.
As you are aware by now, the last day of school will be on Friday, May 21st. It will be an early dismissal day so please get all the needed dismissal times from your child’s school. We will be celebrating our graduating senior class on Saturday, May 22nd. Graduation is slated to be at 10 am at the football stadium. All are welcome to attend!
We will begin some of our construction projects as soon as school ends. It will be a busy next 15 months as the plan is to have all of the construction projects completed by August 2022. It will take some patience and flexibility, but the reward of having updated and safer facilities for our teachers and students is well worth it!
Please check out next year’s calendar that is posted on our website so you know when school begins next school year. We will be working on an appropriate plan for next school year and will communicate it to all families when we have the details ironed out. It is always a challenge as guidance and recommendations continue to evolve. Rest assured, we will always fulfill our district’s mission statement “to educate each student in a safe and nurturing environment.”
I wish each student and family an enjoyable and relaxing summer! The summers always go by fast, so enjoy every minute of it that you can! Once again, our school district appreciates the ongoing support from our Wildcat Nation!

This standard of excellence is reflected in the state’s five best school districts, as each one excels academically, and has earned its share of merits. Louisburg USD #416 School District made the list taking the #14 spot. The list is provided by backgroundchecks.org.

Each year, USD #416 selects an Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year.
This year, Tracy McCombs, 2nd Grade Teacher at Rockville Elementary, was selected as the Elementary Teacher of the Year! Tracy was selected because of her dedication to her profession. She not only wants what is best for her classroom students, but all students at RES. You will never see Tracy complain about her teaching. She loves working with all students and goes above and beyond to find ways for her kids to get their work accomplished and to be successful. Tracy is the first one to try something new to engage her students in the lesson. Her caring attitude and wonderful smile make all of her students feel loved! Any student who gets to work and learn with Mrs. McCombs is one step ahead!
The Secondary Teacher of the Year is Mr. Jarrod Worthing, Math Instructor at Louisburg High School. Mr. Worthington is involved in Louisburg beyond the classroom. He is a coach, mentor, academic resource and great teacher. When students state they are doing well in math at LHS, it is no surprise when they state they have Mr. Worthington as their teacher. The impact that he has had on his students, nurturing a desire to learn in many, is a testimony of his teaching style, ability and character. Each year, Mr. Worthington has always nominated another colleague for this award. He has never missed a year of nominating someone else. This is just another way that Jarrod is always putting others in front of himself.
