Veteran's Day Celebration

Calling all Veterans! We are so thankful for your service, and we would like to celebrate you on November 11th during our Veteran's Day Celebrate Scott. Please send Whitney Zorn ( a picture of your Veteran, name, student they are associated with & relationship, and the branch they served with. We can't wait to honor you.

Principal's Pen

Scott Family,

We've had another busy and exciting week at Scott Elementary. Many of you have told us stories about your kiddos coming home and not being able to recall details about their day. Asking, "How was school today?" might not get you as far. Instead, ask questions like these for a better picture of your kiddo's day:

  • "What's the coolest thing that happened? What wasn't cool?"
  • "Pretend you're the teacher. How would you describe the day?"
  • "What made you laugh?"
  • "What was the most creative thing you did?"
  • "How were you kind or helpful today? Was anyone kind or helpful to you?"

We can't thank you enough for sharing your precious kiddos with you!

Paige & John

Updates and Reminders

Morning Drop-off:

  • Students must exit from the passenger side of the car per the City of McKinney ordinance.
  • 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 cannot happen; your children's safety is our #1 concern.
  • The speed limit for carpool lanes is 10 miles per hour.

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

Texting/Calls: It is against the law to use a phone in an active school zone. Please refrain from texting in/around the school.

Bikes on Campus: Students must walk their bikes/scooters on school grounds. 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.

Birthday Parties/Class Parties: Per Frisco ISD, elementary students may only bring items for distribution to classmates on the three party days: Winter Party, Valentine’s Day and end of year celebration. In addition, students issuing invitations to individual birthday parties or other celebrations may only do so at school if all students in the homeroom class are invited. These birthday invitations must be passed out at the end of the day with permission from the teacher.
