Raise Right Gift Cards for Holiday Shopping
The holidays will be here before we know it! Will you be ready? Let PTO help you cross gift cards off your shopping list! We are using RaiseRight (formerly Scrip) to raise money to support our students and teachers. You buy gift cards to your choice of hundreds of retailers, restaurants, etc. and the school gets a percentage of the total at no extra cost to you. Cards can be purchased now through December 8th and will arrive in time for the holidays. This is a great way to support our school while getting your holiday shopping taken care of!
Cell Phone Usage
As you know, the expectation for students in school is that their phone is turned off and away in their bookbag. We have had a recent uptick in teachers having to remind students of this expectation. I appreciate you speaking to your student about keeping their cell phone away at school.
As a reminder, if students need to go home, they should go to the nurse and she will call you if you need to come pick your student up from school. If your child calls you from their cell phone to come get them at school, please direct them to the nurse instead of just coming for them.
Mr. Altland and I would also like to ask if your child calls you about an incident at school, please have them tell a teacher or one of us. We have been receiving calls from families about incidents that we don't even know about because students are calling home rather than telling an adult at school that can help them with the situation.
I greatly appreciate your support with this!
We will be starting a flag team to raise and lower the flag each morning and afternoon. Two Scott students who are boy scouts will be working with students that are interested to learn how to complete this process as well as fold the flag. Teachers spoke with their classes last week, and Mrs. Lamothe will be meeting with all interested students on Monday to talk about the process and solidify volunteers. Our Boy Scouts will begin training interested students starting on Tuesday.
There will be a schedule made so all interested students will be able to participate.
Thank you to our Boy Scouts for helping to set this up, and our student volunteers!

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.
