HIGHLIGHTS, COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES,  AND ITEMS THAT DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THE CALENDAR

March 26, 2021

Good Morning Scotland School Families,

We have just been made aware that we have a positive case of COVID-19 at Scotland Elementary School. Out of an abundance of caution we will be closing at 1:00 pm today, Friday, March 26th.

Scotland Elementary School will move to distance learning on Monday, March 29th and will follow the Distance Learning Plan academic schedule through Friday, April 9, 2021. We will return to in-person learning in the building on April 19th. There will be no classes during the April vacation week which is April 12 through April 16.

Student academic bins need to go home today with all students. Bus students will need to have their bins picked up by parents. Please call the office to make arrangements.

We truly appreciate your patience and understanding with all of this.

Thank you.

Mrs. Pinsonneault
