SCOTT SCHOLARS: EDUCATING FOR SUCCESS

  • Greetings families!                                                                                           

    The staff at Scott Elementary School is excitedly awaiting your return to our building for the 2023-2024 school year. At Scott, our mission is to provide a solid foundation and prepare all students to progress and develop into successful, healthy, and globally competitive citizens. In order to do so, we pledge to provide a rigorous education and teach our students how to follow the 3Rs (Being Ready, Being Responsible and Being Respectful) but we can’t do it alone! We look forward to partnering with you this school year.

    Please see below for important information and changes this school year:

    1. Join us on August 23, 2023, from 4:30PM to 6:30PM for Back to School Night. Families will get important information and have the opportunity to meet the teachers.
    2. The first day of school is Monday, August 28, 2023.
    3. The school dress code has been modified. Uniforms are no longer required. However, there is a clear policy regarding what is acceptable and unacceptable for students to wear while at Scott. Please refer to the enclosed flier for more details.
    4. A new visitor policy has been implemented to ensure the safety of all students. All visitors will be required to present a valid driver’s license or other state-issued identification when arriving at each of our schools and buildings. That will be scanned and checked against the sexual offender database. Visitors who are cleared will receive a printed ID badge that includes their photo, name, and barcode.
    5. School doors open at 8:35 am and the Late/Tardy bell rings at 8:50am. Breakfast will be served from 8:35 AM to 8:50 AM only. Students enter through the following doors: Kindergarten at Derry St. Door, Grades 1-3 at Kensington St. Door, Grades 4-5 at Berryhill St. door
    6. Dismissal will be as follows: Kindergarten- 3:35 at Derry St. Door, Grade 1- 3:35 at Kensington St. Door, Grade 2- 3:40 at Kensington St. Door, Grade 4- 3:40 at 19th St. Door, Grade 3- 3:45 at Kensington St. Door, Grade 5- 3:45 at 19th St. Door All K-2 students must be signed out. No early dismissal will be allowed after 3PM. Please pick your student up promptly.
    7. A word on attendance…Students need to be in school each day unless they are ill. When students are absent, they miss important instruction. Chronic absenteeism (2 or more days a month) has been shown to negatively impact student achievement. If your child must miss a day of school, please ensure they return with an excuse note. Refer to our attendance policy in the parent/scholar handbook for more details.
    8. A packet of paperwork will come home with your child on the first day of school. Please review it and complete all information needed and return it to school with your child no later than August 30, 2023. Always keep phone numbers current so that we can reach you in the event of an emergency.

    Thank you for allowing us to educate your child and we look forward to a fantastic school year!

    Best regards,

    The Scott Administrative Team

    Saludos familias!

    El personal de la Escuela Scott espera con entusiasmo su regreso a nuestro edificio para el año escolar 2023-2024. En Scott, nuestra misión es brindar una base sólida y preparar a todos los estudiantes para que progresen y se conviertan en ciudadanos exitosos, saludables y competitivos a nivel mundial. Para hacerlo, nos comprometemos a brindar una educación rigurosa y enseñar a nuestros estudiantes cómo seguir las 3R (estar listo, ser responsable y ser respetuoso), ¡pero no podemos hacerlo solos! Esperamos asociarnos con usted este año escolar.

    Consulte a continuación para obtener información importante y cambios este año escolar:

    1. Únase a nosotros el 23 de agosto de 2023 de 4:30 p. m. a 6:30 p. m. para la Noche de regreso a clases. Las familias obtendrán información importante y tendrán la oportunidad de conocer a los maestros.
    2. El primer día de clases es el lunes 28 de agosto de 2023.
    3. El código de vestimenta de la escuela ha sido modificado. Ya no se requieren uniformes. Sin embargo, existe una política clara con respecto a lo que es aceptable e inaceptable que los estudiantes usen mientras están en Scott. Consulte el folleto adjunto para obtener más detalles.
    4. Se ha implementado una nueva política de visitantes para garantizar la seguridad de todos los estudiantes. Todos los visitantes deberán presentar una licencia de conducir válida u otra identificación emitida por el estado al llegar a cada una de nuestras escuelas y edificios. Eso será escaneado y cotejado con la base de datos de delincuentes sexuales. Los visitantes autorizados recibirán una credencial de identificación impresa que incluye su foto, nombre y código de barras.
    5. Las puertas de la escuela se abren a las 8:35 am y el timbre de retraso/tardanza suena a las 8:50 am. El desayuno se servirá únicamente de 8:35 a. m. a 8:50 a. m. Los estudiantes ingresan por las siguientes puertas: jardín de infantes en la puerta de Derry St., grados 1-3 en la puerta de Kensington St., grados 4-5 en la puerta de Berryhill St.
    6. La salida será de la siguiente manera: Kindergarten- 3:35 en Derry St. Door, Grado 1- 3:35 en Kensington St. Door, Grado 2- 3:40 en Kensington St. Door, Grado 4- 3:40 en 19th St. Puerta, Grado 3- 3:45 en la puerta de Kensington St., Grado 5- 3:45 en la puerta de 19th St. Todos los estudiantes de K-2 deben firmar para salir. No se permitirá la salida temprana después de las 3:00 p. m. Por favor recoja a su estudiante puntualmente.
    7. Una palabra sobre la asistencia... Los estudiantes deben estar en la escuela todos los días a menos que estén enfermos. Cuando los estudiantes están ausentes, pierden instrucción importante. Se ha demostrado que el ausentismo crónico (2 o más días al mes) tiene un impacto negativo en el rendimiento estudiantil. Si su hijo debe perder un día de clases, asegúrese de que regrese con una nota de excusa. Consulte nuestra política de asistencia en el manual para padres/estudiantes para obtener más detalles.
    8. Un paquete de papeleo llegará a casa con su hijo el primer día de clases. Revíselo y complete toda la información necesaria y devuélvelo a la escuela con su hijo a más tardar el 30 de agosto de 2023. Siempre mantenga los números de teléfono actualizados para que podamos comunicarnos con usted en caso de una emergencia.

     

    ¡Gracias por permitirnos educar a su hijo y esperamos un año escolar fantástico!

    Atentamente,

    El equipo administrativo de Scott
