Timberwolf Times

Vol. 1 Issue 22, January 9, 2018

Hello Timberwolf Nation!

Happy New Year!! I sincerely hope everyone had time to relax and recharge over holiday break. The year is flying by and before you know it, we will be at the end of the Spring semester!


Please remind your child to wear their ID every day when they walk in the building and to keep it on throughout the day. At the end of last semester, we saw an increasing number of students who either did not have their ID at all or would take it off during the day. The guidelines for IDs are listed in one of the sections below.


I hope that everyone has a fantastic week!


Regards,

Dr. Melinda Stone

Help Coach DeForke AND the Katy ISD Educational Foundation!

Dear WoodCreek Family,


I recently registered for February 02, 2019 Katy Half Marathon 5K 1K. It’s a tough goal, and I’m excited to go for it! To support me in making this goal a reality, I've chosen Katy ISD Education Foundation as my Reason2Race. Racing for them will keep me accountable to my training and race day goal and will add a very special element to my adventure. My goal is to raise over $2,000 for the Katy ISD education foundation. Last year, two of our teachers received a grant from the Ed Foundation!


Check out my page and learn about Katy ISD Education Foundation here: https://my.reason2race.com/StockCreek/KatyHalf5K2019


Please consider donating to this worthwhile cause. Your support will make such a difference for me and them!


Thank you so much,
Coach DeForke

PARENT AND VISITOR IDENTIFICATION (ID) REQUIREMENT:

One of Katy Independent School District's top priorities is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents and community members, who visit our campuses and facilities.

This school year, Katy ISD announces additional campus safety and security measures which include:


  • All parents and visitors must now present a valid, current, government-issued picture ID outside of the main entrance at all Katy ISD campuses prior to gaining admittance. Each campus is equipped with a controlled access system that includes a camera and an intercom that parents and visitors will need to utilize when presenting their ID for entrance. To gain further access beyond the campus front lobby, individuals will again be required to present their ID to the front desk receptionist in order to be officially logged into the visitor tracking system.
  • Student Identification (ID) Badge Requirement:
    Secondary students must now wear their ID badges at all times during school hours, while on district property. Students in grades PK-5 will continue to use their badges during lunch and library times. Fourth and fifth-grade students are requested to wear their badges throughout the school day. At the secondary level, failure to follow the ID badge requirement may be considered a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Campus Door Unlock Times:
    Controlled access systems on campuses will now unlock main entrance doors at a set time each morning. The standard door unlock times for main entrance doors at the Junior High is 8:10 a.m.

Lunch Deliveries

Students and Parents, please be aware that we cannot accept lunch deliveries from restaurants or delivery services for student lunches in the front office. We just do not have the space or manpower to engage in these types of deliveries during the day. We thank you in advance for your cooperation in this regard.


*All lunch boxes and water bottles must be permanently labeled with the student's first and last name before delivering to the front office.* When you enter front office please place drop off items on back table and leave items on table provided. Deliveries will be made during at the beginning of each lunch to the cafeteria.
