Principal's Pen

Dear Scott Family,


Whether you believe in resolutions or not, the concept of being able to reflect and remember is great. As we are looking forward to 2016 and the second semester of our second year together, let's celebrate the wonderful things we have accomplished thus far. Here is our list: partnering together with this amazing community, our first Scott parade, Meet the Teacher Night, the first day of school, working the kinks out at carpool, Curriculum Night, Music programs, Scott Trot, Book Fair, and the list goes on. Through all these events, we don't want to lose site of the wonderful culture we are building with our families and students. We are looking forward to what the New Year as in store for us as we partner together.


We hope that you have safe travels and make precious memories with your children, family, and friends.


Please join me and the Scott faculty as we take time to rest and enjoy our families over the winter holiday break. We will see each of you in 2016.


Fondly,

Paige and Leanne

Safety Reminder

We have had some near misses with our students and staff during morning and after school carpool. Please be patient with our staff and students as they exit cars and drive on and off campus. It may not always be obvious to you as to why you are being asked to stop and wait, but know that student safety is ALWAYS our top priority. Give yourself extra time as the weather gets colder so that you can have the patience needed if delays occur.

Updates and Reminders

Morning Drop-off: Please DO NOT drop off your children in the middle of Millbend Drive. The only drop-off allowed in the mornings is around the back of the school in the FIRST carpool lane. We have had numerous parents allowing their children to hop out of the car on Millbend and run across the street. This is extremely dangerous and can't happen; your children's safety is our #1 concern.


Parking on Campus: Please do not park in the fire lanes at anytime including lunch or Celebrate Scott.


Texting/Calls: Please refrain from texting in/around the school. We are responsible for getting 650 students safely to and from school. Please help by keeping your eyes on the road and not looking at your phone.


Bikes on Campus: Parents, please talk to your child about not riding his/her bike or scooter on campus grounds. We also will be talking to all our students. We have had some near misses with student safety because of bike riders nearly running into other students or failing to stop at the crosswalk. Again, your child's safety is always our #1 concern.

All FISD Community Workshops are held at the FISD Administration Building.
