Back To School Information for Parents and Students

Dear Scioto Families,

Welcome back! We look forward to this school year to provide students with a quality education. As you know or will soon find out, Scioto is a special place. We are fortunate to have an outstanding staff and student body. We look forward to forming partnerships that foster measurable student growth and outcomes.

I will be meeting individually with each class on the first day of school. If you or your child have any individual concerns, please feel free to contact your guidance counselor or administrator to request an appointment. We want to insure that all students are comfortable and excited to be here.

Following are some details to help in preparation for a successful year:
