Scott 6th Grade Center
First Day of School: August 29, 2022
Back to School Night
Thank you to all of the families that came to our Back to School Night last week. It was wonderful to see you all and have our school hallways full again.
I know we are going to have a wonderful school year!
Nurse Keenan would like to remind you that all 6th grade students must have a physical completed. Physical forms are due by January 3, 2023.
Also, if your student requires medication during the school day :
- Medication Order Form must be completed by doctor/ PCP and signed by parent/guardian.
- Medication is brought to the school by an adult and given to the school nurse.
- Medication is in the original container.
Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
Arrival: Busses will begin to arrive at 7:00 and drop off students. Busses pull onto Olive Street and let students out in front of the school. Students will enter into the auditorium (entrance on the left side- door number 2) where they will wait until 7:15 when they can be let into the hallways to head to our cafeteria for a "Grab and Go" breakfast if they wish or head straight to advisory.
If you plan to drop your student off, you do not need to drop them off until 7:15. You will pull onto Olive Street and let your student out in front of the school. (Please be aware of cars behind you and pull up as far as you can). Announcements start at 7:25, with our school day starting at 7:27.
Dismissal: At 2:08 our dismissal starts. We will begin by sending our walkers out the cafeteria doors at the back of our building onto Stirling Street. They will be immediately followed by our first wave of 8 busses. The busses will be double parked outside of the front of our school on Olive Street. The hope is for the busses to pull away by 2:10, but no later than 2:15.
At 2:15, we will begin our parent pick up. Please do not arrive before 2:15 to allow our busses to fill up and be on their way as quickly as possible. Mrs. Murray will be out front asking you who your student is. To speed up this process, we would love if you could write your student's first and last on a piece of paper that Mrs. Murray will be able to read from your car. We are hoping to have all of our parent pick up completed between the two waves of busses.
Around 2:25 (maybe earlier), the second wave of busses will arrive. They will line up single file on the right side of Olive Street (closest to the school). If parent pickup still needs to continue at this time, we will ask families to stay single file on the left side of Olive Street (closest to the field).
I appreciate your patience as we navigate through these procedures at the beginning of the school year. From experience, it does take a couple weeks to get things running smoothly.
Code of Conduct and Discipline Matrix
Please click on the links below to read our Code of Conduct and Discipline Matrix. These documents outline the rights and responsibilities of our students, families and staff. They also explain the expectations for behavior in school and the supports, and consequences that are put in place if necessary. Both documents will be gone over in detail with your student during the first week of school and throughout the school year.
