What If? How to Find the Correct Person to Answer Your Question
In order to improve communication with our families, we have created a flowchart to help direct parents and guardians to the correct person who can answer their question(s). Please use this chart before calling the office with a question so that you can get the best and quickest response.
Note from Our Nurse
Dear Parents,If you are interested in having your child get an oral exam and cleaning by the Mobile Dentist, please turn in your form by September 14th. Also, thank you to all parents who have turned in updated immunization records. If you do not have an immunization summary turned in, please do so immediately.
Changes in Transportation
Additionally, if you are visiting the school for any reason, please do not park in the visitor drive in front of the school. All parents and guardians must park in the parking lot and then walk into the front entrance. The visitor drive is a fire, emergency, and bus lane only. Thank you for your cooperation.

Student Nutrition & Food Service News
Did you know that breakfast is offered each school day? A student breakfast includes an entrée, juice, fruit and milk. School breakfast gives students the energy to start their day right and a student breakfast only costs $ 1.65.
Breakfast and Lunch menus can be found on the Tri-Creek School website by choosing the Departments dropdown and then Food and Nutrition Services. The Nutrition and Food Service website also has other important and educational information. Check it out!
To help breakfast and lunch lines move quicker we encourage students to have their student ID cards or know their student ID number. The faster a student can be rung up at a cashier station means more time for them to enjoy their meal. Your help is greatly appreciated!
Quick Nutrition Fact: It’s important to stay hydrated. Water helps keep your body’s temperature stable, it carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues and removes wastes. Being properly hydrated helps your body function at its best. Make sure your student drinkw plenty of water before, during and after physical activity to put back what they lose through sweat. We often don’t feel thirsty even when we’re dehydrated, so it’s a good idea to drink water regularly even when you don’t feel thirsty. Water and low fat milk are good choices. They quench your thirst without giving you all the sugar and additives found in fruit drinks and juices, soft drinks, sports drinks and flavored mineral waters. Hydrate for your health!
