The updates with Google are continuing and it is impacting speed and connections, especially during meets.

Additionally, please remember to reboot Chromebooks at least once a day.


Due to COVID safety measures in place, parents/guardians are not allowed in the building. This includes our reception vestibule.



During this time, we need to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our students, teachers, and support staff. We have created a daily pre-screening survey for you to pre-screen your student(s) for the primary COVID-19 symptoms and ensure they are able to attend school. Our school nurses will monitor the survey results to look for possible spread of COVID-19 in order to minimize the spread.

Please fill out the daily survey in ParentVUE for your students before they arrive at school or start attending school online for the day. If you want, your students can fill it out for themselves in StudentVUE.

If your student has any of the primary COVID-19 symptoms listed in the survey, please do NOT send them to school and call the school office. If your student is able to attend school online because they have mild symptoms, please have them do so.


Just a reminder, please call in known absences and be aware if a student is ill, we will have to ask questions for contact tracing. If your child has been in close contact with someone (family member, friend, etc.) who has tested positive for COVID, they should NOT come to school, even with a negative test. Please notify the main office of the situation and they will collect information to put you in touch with the school nurse. Hybrid students who are in quarantine will be enrolled in eGBSD and then re-enrolled into hybrid once medically cleared.

AAPI Statement

The Clear Creek Equity Team stands in solidarity with the Asian American Pacific Islander community. The recent attacks are a culmination of current and historic anti-AAPI attacks and misinformation in the United States. We will unite and build strong communities of trust, where all people feel safe, where all people are treated with dignity and respect, where all children feel comfortable and safe going to school, and where all our loved ones have the freedom to thrive. We stand with you today, and everyday as part of our community.

CCMS Equity Statement

We believe each student has assets that enhance the Clear Creek Middle School community, and our job is to nurture their potential.

  1. We believe all students have potential that is enhanced by their individual experiences including their race, ethnicity, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, home language, country of origin and religious preference.

  2. We believe all families want their child to have academic success and a positive social emotional experience.

  3. We believe all students must be seen, heard, and valued in order to actively engage in their learning.

  4. We believe all members of our community are bound in collectivism and our strength lies in our solidarity.

The Clear Creek Middle School community commits to identifying and eliminating systems of oppression within our school and we commit to advancing systems that empower our students to achieve academic and social emotional success.

  1. We commit to decentering dominant culture in order to see and hear other perspectives.

  2. We commit to using a culturally relevant equity lens when making decisions about student and family engagement strategies, curriculum, discipline practices, resource allocation, and school improvement planning.

  3. We commit to recognizing every family’s contributions and centering student and family voices.

  4. We commit to building relationships and staying engaged in courageous conversations with students, families, and colleagues which includes sitting in discomfort, resisting defensiveness, and seeking support.
