SMS Scoop

August 17, 2020


We had a fabulous start to the 2020-2021 school year last week! The students were excellent listeners. The parents were patient and understanding. The teachers were flexible and creative.

It looks like the word of the year is change. Thank you for working together to make this a memorable learning experience for us all.

Scott 2's New Parent-School Communication Platform

At the beginning of this school year Scott 2 transitioned from SchoolMessenger to ParentSquare. All Scottsburg Middle School parents should have received an invitation to join the SMS ParentSquare. If you did not receive an invitation or if you have questions about ParentSquare, please contact Mrs. Hammons.

We will use Parent Square to communicate with our students' families about school events, general information, and school delays/cancellations.

Student Phone Not Available

We do not currently have a phone available for student use. Please plan ahead so students know a "Plan B" to follow when clubs/sports are cancelled or when the normal after school transportation plan is not feasible.
