SCS to Return to School Under Plan B
Dear Scotland County Schools Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff,
During the Monday, September 28 Board of Education meeting, the Board decided to return to school under Plan B for the second nine-weeks of school which would begin October 12 for SEarCH and October 19 for all other schools. Plan B will follow a staggered schedule with students whose last name starts with A – L attending school in-person on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday would be a remote learning day for all students and allow for a deep cleaning of our buildings, and students whose last name begins with M – Z would come for in-person instruction on Thursdays and Fridays. Combined households with varying last names follow the A - L schedule. Please keep in mind that parents/guardians still have the option for their student to remain fully virtual and not attend school in-person for the second nine-weeks.
CLICK HERE to view a video in which we share details about how a school day would look under the Plan B model. We encourage you to view the video as we hope that it will answer many of the questions that you may have.
Parents/Guardians also need to CLICK HERE to be directed to the Opt-In/Opt-Out Form that all parents and guardians must complete indicating if you would rather have your student return to school under Plan B or remain completely virtual. To help us make plans for the second nine-weeks, we need you to complete this form for each of your students no later than Wednesday, October 7. If you would like to print out a copy of this form and submit it in-person to your school, you may do so by clicking here. Schools and the district office will have printed copies of the Opt-In/Opt-Out Form as well.
And finally, as our partners in education, I want to personally thank you for all that you have done and all that you will continue to do to ensure our students and staff are successful.
Cory Satterfield, Interim Superintendent

See Something. Say Something
Everyone is concerned about school safety. It has been, is, and will continue to be our Board and Administration's top priority for our schools to remain a safe place to learn. We have a multitude of safety measures and procedures in place in our schools and district offices, but we know that even with all the camera systems, drills, and exercises we conduct, our most valuable security system that we have on our campuses each day remains the many thousands of eyes and ears of our students and staff. We can’t stress enough how strongly we encourage anyone and everyone to say something to someone – a teacher, a counselor, an administrator, or law enforcement personnel – if they hear or see anything suspicious or ever have any concerns. Let us teach our children to always be kind. Let us do everything we can, with all that we can, to ensure that our schools and community remain safe.
