Scotland County Elementary will be hosting Summer School from June 1st – June 19th. The enrichment program will be offered to all students in kindergarten (entering in August 2020) through 7th grade. Summer School will be open to all students in the Scotland County School District only.
Doors will open at 7:30 am for breakfast and classes will begin at 8:00 am. School will dismiss daily at 3:00 pm.
In an effort to adhere to social distancing guidelines created by the Coronavirus, students will be in classroom groups no larger than 12-15 students and will remain with their class for the entirety of the day. Students will be served breakfast and lunch in their classrooms to avoid large groups in the cafeteria. Students will be spaced 6-feet apart in the desks in the classrooms. Hand washing will be encouraged frequently and sanitizer will be available.
Recess times will be staggered so only one group is out at a time. Students will wash hands and sanitize going to and coming in from recess each time.
Transportation will be provided to students however private transport is encouraged when at all possible..
“To assist the district with social distancing efforts, we ask that any parents able to pick up and drop off their students, utilize this option to reduce student numbers on buses<” said SCR-I Elementary School Principal Erin Tallman. “Students will be loaded on buses back to front with seats between students and only members of the same family will be allowed to sit together. Additionally, the school will provide a staff member on each route to assist in social distancing efforts.”
Temperature checks will be performed daily on each student as they enter and exit the classroom. Any student with a temperature of 99.5 degrees or above will be asked to go home.
Students will be asked to bring a refillable water bottle from home daily. Water fountains will not be available for use, but the water bottle filling stations will be available.
The enrichment program will feature core curriculum aligned with the Missouri Learning Standards in the areas of reading/language arts, math, science and social studies.
“t is our hope to have structured learning time to continue our students academic progress,” said Tallman.
The afternoon will be enrichment activities in the areas of art, music, physical education, technology, etc.
“Our goal is to prepare our students for the 2020-2021 school year and bridge the gap from this year to next,” said Tallman.
Parents are asked to complete an online enrollment form to register their child for summer school. The forms are available at the district website and Facebook page or can be picked up in the elementary school office. Deadline to register is Friday, May 22nd.
