*A NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL SCRIVO*

Thank you to those parents that picked up and dropped off their students materials. We had a fantastic turn out. It was so great to see our Scotch family again even if it was from a distance.


The district has set up a very last chance to hand in any outstanding technology devices. Chromebook/hotspot collection will be Tuesday, June 16th, and Wednesday, June 17th, at the WBSD ACS Building (5810 Commerce Rd, West Bloomfield 48324) between the hours of 9am-3pm. Boxes will be on a table outside the set of doors to the left of the main entrance (closest to Commerce Rd.) for collection. Please place items in these boxes. All district devices, with the exception of WBSD summer school programs devices will be shut down Thursday, June 18th. Once shut down, the device will no longer be able to be used. Devices used by WBSD summer school programs will be collected at a later date.

LIFETOUCH SPRING PHOTO UPDATE!

Spring photos will be mailed out by Lifetouch to families by the end of next week. Thank you for your patience!

CAR LINE HANG TAG/BACKPACK TAG

Remember students will have the same car line number/tag throughout their stay at Scotch. Please do not throw away their/your car line tags. We know many students replace their backpacks over the summer. Please just carefully cut off the zip tie and we will replace it when they return to school. Incoming siblings will use the same family car tag number.

STUDENT MEDICATION 2020 - 2021

New medication consent forms with physician signatures are required for the upcoming school year for students who must take medication, both prescription and over-the-counter, at school. Please click HERE to print the necessary medical consent form. This form may be used for Scotch School as well as Abbott Middle School.

WELLNESS RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES

1ST DAY SCHOOL SUPPLIES

We have collaborated with 1st Day School Supplies to help parents and teachers get the exact school supplies needed for the 2020/2021 school year without the hassle and aggravation of having to go out and shop at Walmart, Target, or Staples. You simply order all of your school supplies online and they are delivered to the school for you.


The teachers have created grade level specific lists for their classrooms. Your supplies will be delivered to Scotch in a customized kit for your child at the beginning of the school year. Students will receive 50 customized labels in their kit to personalize their items.


We have found 1st Day School Supplies to be convenient, easy and hassle free plus the prices are competitive! You have the option to order your supplies until July 1st. CLICK HERE to begin shopping!

THANK YOU PTO BOARD FOR ALL YOU DO FOR OUR STUDENTS & COMMUNITY!
