There will be a parent / player meeting with Coach Henry on Tuesday, May 26 at Scott High at 6:30 PM at the football field - weather permitting - if weather is a problem, we will meet in the gym.  Coach Henry will have physical packets and summer practice schedules. All young ladies that plan on playing soccer at Scott High need to be in attendance. Parents are encouraged to attend so they can ask questions about what summer practice will be like with the current health department guidelines.

Dear Parents,

The Scott County Schools still want to provide food and nutrition to our students even during this time while school is closed, so we’re announcing a new program that will deliver meals at your doorstep for free. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between our district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University.  All Scott County Schools students are eligible to participate in the program.

Scott High is working on registration information for transitioning 8th graders and new students.  Nothing needs to happen at this time.  More information will be released later in May.

An Edited Message from RSCC Scott County Campus Director -- 
I hope you are staying safe, and more importantly, healthy!  

 Many SHS seniors are unfortunately having to change or consider changing their college plans.  I just wanted to pass along that we feel like our enrollment for the fall semester is going to increase.  Many students now wish to stay closer to home or may definitely need to use the TN Promise scholarship due to changing employment in the home.

First, let me say – WE MISS YOU, and we are heartbroken that we won’t get to see you until the Fall.  Please know that we are all still here for you. If you need anything, please reach out! We will do our best to help.

Second, I know there is A LOT of different information floating around about what “school” and “classes” look like from here. Not all of it is correct.  Use THIS document as your guide.

  1. School is not over. Classes are not finished.  We still have some things to do, so do not stop communicating with your teachers!
  2. The school calendar has not changed. Our last full day is still May 22, so we will need to be able to contact you until then.

As we creep up on these dates and the predictive health models have changed, we believe that we are in a better position now to make adjustments to the dates of our Special Events.  While our goal is to make these adjustments once, there is no guarantee that we won’t have to shift things further.

All school buildings will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  However, our @Home Learning programs will continue throughout the normally scheduled end of the school year with a focus on helping students complete their current assignments and achieve a (P)assing grade for Semester 2.  Per school board policy voted on 4/16/2020, the Spring Semester (S2) grading policy has been modified to the following:

All Parents & Students -

As we enter Week 2 of our extended dismissal, I want to sincerely thank every student and family.  You were given very little notice and a lot of responsibility, and you all really stepped up! The things that we’ve seen over the last week have been amazing, and we’ve never been prouder of our students, parents, and teachers.

Parent & Student Access to PowerSchool is Now Available!

Each student's report card has instructions on how to access that student's PowerSchool Student account.  Also provided are instructions for parents on how to create their Parent Portal account.  This information can be accessed through a normal web browser as well as mobile apps for both Students & Parents. (Parents will need to create their account on the Parent Portal website first before accessing the Parent App)
School Employees - Your PowerSchool Admin / Teacher accounts are not tied to the Parent Portal.  You will still need to create a Parent account per the instructions on your child's grade card.

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.
