Out of Zone Requests for 2018-2019

Parents please remember that any student attending Scott Teays Elementary school as an ‘out of zone’ student, must re-apply each school year.  When space is available for out of zone students, they are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Acceptance does not automatically renew and please note that students may be ‘bumped’ to their home school at any time during the year should enrollment numbers create overcrowding.  Forms can be obtained on the Putnam County Board of Education website or at the school office.

Speed in the Morning Drop Off Lane

Please be reminded that staff members travel outside through the side doors of the gym and cross the drop off lane to access the dumpster during the morning drop off time. On numerous occasions, individuals have been observed and picked up on our surveillance cameras driving fast in order to arrive at the back door before the 7:30 tardy bell rings.  Please allow enough time each morning and slow down to ensure safety for all!
