Scotland Elementary News

There’s nothing we enjoy more than sharing all the great news about our students and staff members. We love featuring their accomplishments and celebrating with them. And we have a lot to share! Stop by here regularly to read about student and staff awards, past happenings, upcoming events, and so much more!

Early Dismissal Day

Please note that Friday, February 17 is an early dismissal day. We will dismiss all students at 11:40 a.m. due to professional learning for our staff.

No School

There is no school on Monday, February 20 in observance of Presidents Day. There is also no school on Tuesday, February 21 through Friday, February 24 for our February recess. School resumes on Monday, February 27. Enjoy your week off!

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the 2023–2024 school year is coming soon. If you have a child turning five before January 1, 2024, please contact the main office at (203) 894-5825. Please note that kindergarten enrollment numbers have an impact on the number of sections of kindergarten and the overall staffing within Scotland. More information will be forthcoming!

April Parent-Teacher Conferences

Spring parent-teacher conferences will take place on Tuesday and Thursday, April 4 and 6. During this conference period, meetings are not expected to take place for every student. A teacher or parent/caregiver may make a request for a spring conference.

Both conference days will be early release days for students. We will also have an evening option for conferences on April 4. Wednesday, April 5 will be a normal day. Spring conferences will take place in fifteen-minute sessions.

Library Volunteers

It's not scary to help in the library! We are excited to once again have volunteers during library classes. The SES library is looking for volunteers to help with library book checkout, reshelving returned books and hands-on activities. If you have time in your busy day to volunteer, the SES library would appreciate your help!

No long-term commitment necessary, and it is not hard to do. If you have some time during the day and would like to be a part of the fun, here's how it works:

  1.  See our sign-ups by grade online.
  2. Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you would like. Please be considerate of other families and choose a few spots to begin with. Once everyone has had a chance to sign up, you can go back and volunteer for any open spots. If you do not see your class listed, it means it already has a volunteer.
  3. Fill out the visitor form to let us know the time and day you are coming to volunteer.

Please contact Amy Tomasco with any questions.

Scotties Helping Scotties

Within the Scotland community, affording supplies, field trips, yearbooks, enrichment, and activities is never something a student should miss because of financials! The PTA sets funds aside to help families in our community. We all experience financial challenges, from layoffs to life's moments and everything in between. If you are experiencing any type of financial challenge, please email the principal about your needs. Your request is fully anonymous to everyone except our principal. Do not be bashful; our community is always here to help! Please reach out to Jill with any needs you may have!

Weather Reminder

Please find all the information you need about snow days, early dismissals, and delay starts on our weather reminder page.
