Recreation Forms and Policies

In order to provide our citizens and their families the best service possible, the Town of Scott has developed a Code of Conduct and Authorization for Emergency Treatment of Minors documents. The youth, who participate in any or all of the scheduled activities, are asked to abide by the code of conducts set forth. This code of conduct will be enforced by the summer recreation directors and or other staff.

All forms and calendars can be found in the document library.

Please look at the TOSSRP_Brochure_2019 for more information.
