March 7, 2021 Weekly Message

Good Evening Scott Families,

This is Lisa Schaffer, Principal of Scott School, with the weekly message for the week of March 7th. 

Parents, students and teachers across Illinois will once again have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of your child’s school as it relates to the important elements of school effectiveness.

All survey responses will be kept confidential. The state will provide survey results for individual schools only if a school has at least 20 percent of parents take the survey. If you have children attending more than one school, we ask that you complete the survey for each school. The survey is open through April 2nd. Students in grades 4 and 5 will be taking the survey during the week of March 7th.

To take this short survey:

1. Parents- 5 Essentials Survey (English)  5 Essentials Survey (Spanish) when you have a  chance. The link can also be found on the district webpage at

2. Type and select “Cook” as the county

3. Type and select  “Scott Elem” as the school

If you have children at home between the ages of 2 and 4 who do not go to Mannheim Early Childhood Center? Mannheim Early Childhood Center is holding Virtual Preschool screenings for March and April. Please contact the MECC office at 847-455-3611 to get on the screening list.  Please note: a screening must take place to see if your child qualifies for the Pre-K program. Mannheim Early Childhood Center is filling up spots for the remainder of this year and registering students for the 21-22 school year now.

Have a great week!
