Scales Elementary School was opened in the fall of 1977. Scales originally served a student population in grades K-6. Currently, Scales serves the student enrollment in grades K-5. The students of Scales live primarily in a residential area west of Franklin Rd. The population and ethnic make-up of Scales is reflective of the community and is of an increasingly diverse cultural and social background. Scales’ leaders believe the school is an extension of the community and guided by democratic principles, dedicated to enhancing the rights and privileges of citizens, and laying a foundation for leadership.
Scales Elementary School is proud to offer additional enrichment activities to continually challenge our student population. During the school year, students participate in several after school clubs. Classes are often created based on student interest. Some of our classes from previous years include: “Cup-cakery”, French and Spanish, “Promethean Professionals”, “Mad Scientist”, “Big Time Healthy”, “Lego-Mania”, Irish Dancing and many more! Students can also choose to become a part of our Destination ImagiNation team, where students work together in teams on various projects requiring creative problem solving skills. Those teams compete and often become recognized as some of the top teams in the state. We are very proud of our students!

Dismissal will begin at 3:35PM. Students not picked up by 3:45 are taken to the front office where a parent will have to pick them up. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED BACK IN THE CLASSROOM AFTER DISMISSAL.
PLEASE NOTE: EARLY DISMISSALS MUST BE PERFORMED BEFORE 3:10 PM. AFTER THAT TIME, STUDENTS WILL GO THROUGH NORMAL DISMISSAL PROCEDURES.
All teachers have a classroom website and their individual e-mail addresses and phone extensions can be found on our Staff Directory page.
It is vitally important in times of emergency that the school is in possession of information that will enable us to promptly and directly reach the parents. Please be sure to return a completed blue dismissal form with contact information. If there are any changes through the year, please notify the office immediately. In the event of an early dismissal during the school day (such as inclement weather), we will follow the instructions as provided by you on the dismissal form.
MEDICATION: Any non-prescribed medication to be dispensed must be discussed with the school nurse. Students who need to take prescribed medication must have the appropriate form available in the clinic, signed by the physician and parent before the medication can be brought to school. The medication must be in the original bottle, brought in by the parent, and be left in the clinic.
CLINIC: The school has an equipped clinic managed by a full-time registered nurse and is prepared to deal with minor accidents such as scrapes and abrasions. In the event of a sickness or an accident needing further attention, the school will notify the parents or designated person immediately.
Transportation changes: If you need to have your child changed from a bus rider to a car rider (or vice versa), please send a note to the teacher in the morning on the day you wish to make the change. Parents are not to go to the buses and take children off before they leave the school grounds. Students cannot change buses. If, in an emergency, a child needs to ride a different bus other than the one they normally ride, a note from the parent needs to be brought to the principal to be signed. The student will then give the note to the driver, notifying him/her of the change. If a note is not sent to school, parents are to call the front office to schedule the transportation change by 3:00pm.
