Three Creeks Back To School News
It is my pleasure to welcome you all back to the 2018-2019 school year. For those of you that are new to our school, we welcome you to the Three Creeks family! The staff at Three Creeks Elementary work diligently to provide a learning environment that allows all students to reach their potential academically, behaviorally and social and emotionally. Our goal is to provide a safe, positive, and supportive school experience so that all students feel valued and encouraged to achieve their personal best. I am excited to join Three Creeks as the new Principal. I have been in the district for ten years first as a student teacher, then teacher. From there, I took a job in the district as an instructional coach, an Assistant Principal and most recently the District Coordinator of College and Career Readiness. I look forward to making Three Creeks my home and getting to know each person that makes this a great school!
Please note that we updated our website over the summer. Many of the same items will carry over but if there is something you are looking for to be posted on the web that you don’t see, feel free to reach out to us.
Below are just a few back to school reminders as we begin the new school year!
School Day Hours
School begins at 8:00 am and student drop off begins at 7:30am. In the interest of the safety of children, please refrain from dropping students off before 7:30 as there is no supervision during that time.
Car Pick Up and Drop Off
Parents picking up students from school will enter the drive at the south end of the property. Students should remain in your cars until a staff member opens the door of car #1. School drop off in the morning will begin at 7:30 am and pickup for car riders will begin at 2:20. During pick up and drop off, parents should remain in their car unless they need to come in to speak to school personnel.
Just a reminder that if school is cancelled for any reason, Tri-Creek School Corporation will utilize an Elearning day to continue the child’s education. Three Creeks’ teachers utilize Google Classroom to deliver the content and all learning objectives and work will be posted by 9:00 am. Teachers will be available for support throughout the day. The eLearning Day Help Desk is available from 8:00am until 11:00pm the day of an eLearning Day. Support by phone can be reached by calling 219-750-1315. You can also receive support via email by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grandfriends day will be October 16th and 17th this school year. Please note this is later than normal. More information will be sent home as we approach the days.
