2023-2024 Henderson County Schools Full Faculty & Staff Inservice
Over the past several years, the student population at Scotts Hill Elementary has been growing. This has created a major issue on the state highway in front of the school in the afternoons when students are being picked up. In an attempt to reduce the number of cars on the main highway, the leadership team has decided to reverse the flow of traffic. The entrance will now be directly beside the gym and will be one-way traffic into four lanes to allow for more cars to enter the parking lot in the afternoon. That means the exit will now be on the other side of the Tucker insurance building. The dismissal time will be 2:45 and the gates will not be open until around 2:35. The leadership team asks that parents do not attempt to come early and park because the gates will be closed and it creates a security issue when there are so many people inside the campus. There is usually more congestion in the first week or two before the afterschool program starts. Parents are encouraged to wait until 2:50 if they are not pressed for time. There will be a number posted on the sign if you need to enter the campus to pick up children early or a call ahead will also help. The safety of our students and staff is the number one priority for our school system. We appreciate the patience of all parents in this matter, as we are attempting to make things better. The first few days may be some trial and error, but we will do our best to make sure that everyone is picked up timely and safely. Special thanks go out to Trey Davis for his work on this project and Mr. Danny Beecham for green-lighting the project.

This month we are celebrating the core value of compassion. Compassion means that we have sympathy for the suffering of others. Compassion means that we suffer along with them. This week, see if you can catch yourself in those moments when compassion wanes. When you notice, without beating yourself up, gently remind yourself that you and the rest of us are doing the best we each can at this point in time. Take a few breaths, and silently say to yourself, “at this moment, with this breath, I am doing the best I can.” Then apply this to the other person, silently saying to yourself, “at this moment, with this breath, he/she is doing the best they can.” Compassion and love can change the the paths of our schools and our homes.
We will be shutting the gates to the parking lot at about 8:15 this morning to ensure that our kids are safe during Waterworld. Any parent that wants to come and be present is welcome. Please park across from the gym and walk down the side of the gym and check in at the office and receive an ID tag. We ask that you not be in the building other than to use the restroom. If you are not attending, but you want to check your child out at some point today for an appointment, I would suggest that you call ahead to the office and let us start getting them ready so that you can get them expediently. Have a great day!
