Rock Creek -2021-22
BIRTHDAY TREATS AND INVITATIONS
Due to student allergies, equity and the number of birthdays we celebrate each month we do not allow birthday treats/prizes at school. We will however, be recognizing and celebrating birthdays on their special day in other special ways!
We also ask that private birthday party invitations or other type of private invitations NOT be delivered and distributed at school. This can lead to hurt feelings among students. Please make an effort to deliver these important messages in another manner.
Thank you for your cooperation. It is greatly appreciated.
IMPORTANT STUDENT ARRIVAL TIME
For the safety of our students, students that are parent drop off, walkers and bike riders are not to arrive before 8:20 am. Bus riders arrive at 8:15 am because the school buses need to leave earlier to pick up middle school students. Classroom doors do not open until 8:20 am. We do not have space or the supervision for all students to safely line up outside the doors until 8:20 am.
We are required to track all student absences and illness symptoms. When calling in your student's absence please leave detailed information ie. cough, fever, vomiting, etc. If we do not have detailed information we are required to call parents. Our 24 hour attendance line is 503-356-2450. Thank you for your cooperation!

Clothes FOR KIDS
To see open appointment slots, families need to click on a calendar date that works for them, then select either a Large Family (4 or more students) or a Small Family (1 - 3 students). After they've indicated the family size, open appointments for a date selected will be on the right side of the screen. If times are not shown, either family size has not been selected or they need to select a different date on the calendar. They need to click on the time that works for them and then complete a short form to book the appointment. While online is best, families can all call 503-356-4322 to schedule an appointment. (Press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish.)
District staff are more than welcome to schedule appointments for families. When you book the appointment, if needed, you can leave your information under the contact questions and fill out the remainder of the form with the student's information. On the day of the appointment, families will be asked to complete another very short form with the student's information.
In addition to scheduling the appointment, if needed and appropriate, you can shop for the family. You would just need to have an idea of what the student needs, their sizes and preferences. If you'd like to shop for several students and/or families, please book a 45 min timeslot. Volunteers will be there to help you.
Appointments are not needed to make a donation. For the program, donations are best when the program is open during the times listed above. Or, there are two donation bins on the walkway in front of the program that are available Monday through Friday during normal business hours.
