District Science Fair February 4, 2023
Ten Scott Science Fair projects will be continuing on to our District Science Fair on February 4th. The District Science Fair will be held at the Coatesville Area Senior High School from 10:00 to 2:30 in the cafeteria.
All families are invited to walk through the cafeteria to view projects.
Reviewing our PBIS Expectations
On Friday, our PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) team continued to reinforce our message of Respect, Ownership, Courage, Kindness, and Safety. Each student was given a passport that was stamped when they participated in a lesson that was given in the different areas of the building. Students have been invited to take it home for their family to sign and then bring it back to be entered into a drawing for a Dunkin Donuts gift card.
We appreciate your ongoing support in reminding your students to be respectful, take ownership for their learning, have courage, be kind, and be safe while they are at school.

Cell Phone Usage at Scott
We have many students taking their phones out during class and refusing to put them away. We have students taking their phones with them to the restrooms and making bad decisions. We also have students using their phones to take pictures and/or videos of students and staff without their knowledge. Many of these actions are receiving suspensions as a consequence.
Our district policy at the secondary level states that a student's phone should be off and away unless a teacher has allowed for the phone to be in use. It also states that a student should put the phone away or turn it over when asked.
Moving forward at Scott, if administration has to get involved with a student using a cell phone inappropriately or refusing to put it away, the privilege to be able to have it on them during the day will be taken away. Students will either be asked to keep their phone at home or turn it into the main office at the beginning of the day, and retrieve it at the end of the day.
This is only for students whose cell phone usage is a problem. We can no longer tolerate the disruption, disrespect and distraction that cell phones are causing for these students.

Just a couple reminders to families:
- Students should not be contacting families to be picked up when they are not feeling well. Students need to be assessed by the nurse and calls home will be made as needed. If families want to be called each time their student comes to the nurse, please email Ann Keenan, school nurse (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is not standard practice to call home for non-urgent matters.
- Emergency Health Forms were sent home last week (lime green). If you did not complete the Emergency Health Information online, you must complete the paperwork and return it to the school nurse.
- Covid 19 is still causing illness and absences. Please continue to test and take precautions to avoid further spread. 5 days of isolation followed by 5 days of well-fitting masks is the current CDC guideline. (see below).
- The school nurse will be starting health screenings (Vision, Growth and Scoliosis). If your student has glasses, please make sure they have them for school.
We have had a couple cases of head lice at Scott. Please read the attached letter for more information.
