Handling Separation: From the Director

Children attend elementary school only once in a lifetime. At Scofield we are thankful for each child who walks through our doors. In order to facilitate a successful transition to the school year, parents and students visit the school the day before classes begin. During the first few days of school, parents are allowed to wait with their child before classes begin and escort their child to the classroom.
