IMPORTANT DATES

Creekside ElementaryMonday, August 2, 5 pm - 7 pm

                                  * Update - Families with last names beginning with A - M, please try to attend between 5 pm - 5:45 pm.

                                   Families with last names beginning with N - Z, please try to attend between 6 pm - 6:45 pm.  

                                  Creekside would like to space out our families a bit so that there is enough parking for everyone, and also to allow for more distancing and space. All doors will be open so families can come and go from any Creekside door. We encourage families to visit, meet the teacher(s), drop off school supplies, complete forms, and dismissal information, have questions answered, and then depart to the tent behind Creekside to end the night with ice cream! If families need to attend at a different time than what your last name calls for above, that is fine. These times are rules of thumb to try to spread out the open house event.

MEAL PRICES

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended flexibilities to allow free meals to be available to all children through the 2021-2022 school year.  

Please keep in mind, that in order for the meal to be free, your child must choose the entire meal.  Those who bring lunch and select a carton of milk will be charged $.50. 

While the USDA has extended free meals through the 21-22 school year, it is important for families who believe they would qualify for free and reduced meals should still submit a free meal application as this can help with qualifying for other assistance programs for the family and student. Benefits from completing applications stretch far beyond the cafeteria and impact students in the classroom and at home. All information submitted in these applications is private and confidential.
