State Testing Information for last year
If your student was in the 3rd-8th & 11th grade last year and participated in state testing, score reports are now available in the OSTP Parent/Student Portal.
Please note that new enhancements have been made to the OSTP Parent/Student Portal. One student can now be associated with up to three guardian/parent accounts and one parent account can be tied to multiple students. These enhancements to the OSTP Parent/Student Portal require all users to create an account as a ‘First Time User’.
In order to create an account in the OSTP Parent/Student Portal, you will need your student’s state ID number (STN) and date of birth. Please check your Deer Creek Parent Portal account for a letter containing your student’s state ID number & information on logging into the OSTP Parent/Student Portal. The letter containing your student’s STN can be found in the Deer Creek Parent Portal under Documents> Testing Portal Information.

THIRD GRADE FLASHLIGHT READING
Every meal is a chance to fuel student achievement and performance. With that goal in mind, Deer Creek School District in partnership with Sodexo is excited to launch an expanded menu for grades K-6 from September 12th. Our Antlers will have 4 entree choices instead of 2. This will include a vegetarian option daily. Please visit the Child Nutrition Website for more information.
Birthday Invitations & Parties
Please do not hand out party invitations unless every child in the class is invited. Birthday parties at school are not allowed. Please do not have gifts, flowers, or balloons delivered to your child, at school, for special occasions. Transportation will not allow any gifts, flowers, or balloons on the bus after school.
**BIRTHDAY SNACKS - must be store bought and a simple bite size snack. Please do not send any other birthday type items (candles, balloons, favors, hats, etc.) as this is just a snack to honor the birthday child. Snack items are not allowed on the bus per transportation rules.
IMPORTANT SITE & DISTRICT LINKS
We would appreciate it if all of our families would fill out the above compact showing our shared responsibility and dedication to the academic success of our students.
“The Deer Creek School District has made arrangements to offer Student Accident Insurance for all students from K&K Insurance Group. We make this coverage available to parents for their children who are students enrolled in our schools. The Deer Creek School District does not provide insurance coverage or medical reimbursements to parents for injuries that occur during school, including those incurred during gym classes, recess, etc.
While this coverage is optional, it is important that you review the coverage options available to you and consider purchasing this coverage, especially if your family has health insurance with a high co-payment for doctor and emergency visits, or a high-deductible plan, etc. Go to the link below for the application and additional information.
