School buildings are closed for traditional face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year per the Governor’s Executive Order (April 2, 2020). Thus, for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, Scott 2 will use a mixture of e-Learning (Non-Traditional Instruction) and Waiver Days. An e-Learning Day is defined as a day when students are expected to be engaged in lessons and our school staff will be available to help students or families or will be engaged with students through various means in educational activities virtually. A Waiver Day is defined as a day when school staff are not “on-call” for that assistance and would not be engaged with students in educational activities. Students may work on their e-Learning or Non-traditional instruction lessons on Waiver days. Food Service through School Site Pick-ups, Remote Site Drop Offs, and Home Deliveries will be available on both types of days (see below for more complete details on the Food Service options for students).

All state of Indiana Assessment for the Spring of 2020 are cancelled.  This would include iLearn,  ISTEP+, IRead3, IRead Re-test,  IAM, WIDA Screener, and ISPROUT.

If your student is in an AP class at SHS, your student’s teacher will be in touch with the details once the College Board finalizes those plans for the Spring of 2020.

ELEARNING

School buildings are closed for traditional face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year per the Governor’s Executive Order (April 2, 2020). Thus, for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, Scott 2 will use a mixture of e-Learning (Non-Traditional Instruction) and Waiver Days. An e-Learning Day is defined as a day when students are expected to be engaged in lessons and our school staff will be available to help students or families or will be engaged with students through various means in educational activities virtually. A Waiver Day is defined as a day when school staff are not “on-call” for that assistance and would not be engaged with students in educational activities. Students may work on their e-Learning or Non-traditional instruction lessons on Waiver days.

Teacher hours for support are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the e-Learning (Non-Traditional Instruction) days. They may be reached virtually via email, Canvas Messaging, or by contacting your student’s school and they will call you back.

The best two ways to communicate with staff are email or phone. To reach your student’s teacher or building administration via email use Harmony Family Access. There are live email links to your student’s teachers in Family Harmony Access.  

Also, teachers can be reached by contacting your student’s school between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on e-Learning (Non-traditional instructional days). The school staff will relay a message, and the teacher will contact you back.

Teachers may use other methods to engage with parents.

WIFI SPOTS

In a recent survey, it was reported that more than 85 percent of Scott 2 students had reliable internet options. We realize with the recent state mandates and state guidance, some of those internet options might have become limited if they were community led hotspots. Therefore, Scott 2 has increased the bandwidth on the internet access points in the building and have created drive-in/parking lot hot spots so that students can come to the school parking lot as needed to work or download and upload assignments.

SPECIAL EDUCATION

Teachers of Record (TOR) will make periodic contact/check-ins with students/student families concerning services that are consistent with the students’ IEPs. Any necessary IEP or 504 meetings will be conducted virtually through Canvas Conferences or phone.

The Section 504 Building Coordinator will be in communication with students and their families if the student has a 504 plan. Scott 2 will communicate with parents and guardians regarding their student services.

Teacher of Record (TOR) or District Special Education Staff (including School Psychologist) will contact families concerning evaluation data to schedule virtual IEP meetings or to amend IEPs to include distance/eLearning language in the IEP.

GRADUATION & SPRING ACTIVITIES

School administration, in concordance with the CDC guidelines, City of Scottsburg, and Scott County Health Department, have released a graduation plan. Seniors, please check your school email for further details.

We will continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation and all federal and state guidance on gatherings.

All spring events and sports are canceled.  Our Athletic Director, Jamie Lowry, will provide future guidance when sport activities can resume.

Prom is canceled. If we can reschedule in the summer, we will look at having a prom; we will look at guidance from the local health department and governor.

SENIORS (CLASS OF 2020)

Seniors are expected to participate in their classes and complete assignments until the end of the semester.  This is an opportunity to improve grades before the end of the semester.  However, senior students will pass any class that they were enrolled in through SHS (including Plato) as of March 19, 2020, meaning the lowest grade a senior student will receive is a D- for each course they are enrolled.
