Shelley Moore, Principal

Dear Families,

I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2018-2019 School Year! For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to a wonderful place to learn and grow. I am beginning my second year as the principal of Sam Case and am so thankful and happy to be here. I have lived in Lincoln County for 25 years with my husband and two grown children. I am committed to the Sam Case community and firmly believe that all students can succeed.

Our teachers and staff are caring, innovative, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of educators who strive to have our students reach their highest potential and give our all each day!

I’ve enjoyed meeting many of you and look forward to our continued partnership in ensuring a productive and fun educational experience for your child(ren) I believe that building strong relationships between home and school is a key factor in increasing student achievement. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I strongly believe that family involvement is an essential component to student success, as research continues to show strong correlation between increased involvement and high student success.

School Hours

8:05 a.m. – 3:05 p.m.

Arrival Times

Our school day begins at 8:05 a.m. every day. Please be sure to have your child/children here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and unprepared. All students who arrive after 8:10 am must sign be singed in at the office by an adult. If your child will not be present, please call and inform the attendance office at 541-265-8598.

Free Breakfast/ Lunch

All students will receive FREE breakfast and lunch daily. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria starting at 7:45 a.m. Remember breakfast is an important start to our students day. We will have on the go breakfast for students that arrive late. They can take this to their classroom to eat.

School Supply List

School supply lists for each grade level are available in the office and also posted on our district website. All fifth grade students will use an academic binder/planner. Sam Case will provide those materials to them.

Drop-off and Pick-up

Parent Drop-off and Pick-Up will remain at the front of the school.At the end of the day, teachers will escort students to the bus and students will proceed to the parent parking for pick-up as they proceed down the hall. Staff are on duty to escort students to parent cars. It is possible that you may be asked to pull around again to keep the line moving.


Students who are walkers will proceed with their teacher down the hall and release out the west exit with a supervising staff member. They proceed out the playground gate and cross with the crossing guard across 12th street. You may pick them up in that area or they may walk to their destination.
