As the start date for the school year approaches, we are watching the data closely and working with our Health Department to plan for the next few weeks.  At next week's worksesssion, I will be recommending to the Board of Education that we extend the phase-in period an additional week to allow for increased distancing and to focus on health procedures.  It is possible that additional changes could be necessary.  Please be patient as we work through this ever changing situation.  Any announcements will be posted on the district website

Billy M. Hall, Director of Schools

It is with great regret that the Museum of Scott County announces that we  will not be hosting the Scott County Heritage Festival this year.  We have not made this decision lightly, but due to the necessity of extensive planning and unpredictable conditions related to Covid-19, we feel this is best for our school and community. Retaining the spirit of the festival would be impossible with distancing guidelines, and safety is our greatest concern for everyone. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.


The 2020-2021 District Reopening Plan can be viewed at the link below.  Please remember that information on COVID-19 changes daily and this document will be updated to reflect those changes.  The sign-up form for attending school Online is being completed and will be posted in the coming days.

The Scott County Schools is participating in a Universal Breakfast and Lunch Program for the current school year. If your children attend any of the schools in the Scott County School System, a reimbursable breakfast/lunch will be available to them at no charge. All students enrolled at a school may participate in the breakfast/lunch program at no charge to them.
Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing breakfast/lunch to all children at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.
The school breakfast and lunch that we serve follows U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The Universal Meals Program cannot succeed without your support; please encourage your children to participate in school meal programs.
All meals will be served to all students at no charge regardless of the eligibility status.
If you have any questions about the program please contact Paulette King, School Nutrition Director, at 663-2159.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
