Willow Creek Newsletter
August 28th, 2020
Hello Willow Creek Families! As we prepare to start school next week we have some important updates and events coming up. Please see the below information about iPad pickup, our Virtual Meet the Teacher event, music classes, and more.
See you all soon,
Willow Creek Middle School.
Students will need to know their student id# for iPad setup. If you are able to work with your student to have this number available for device pickup that would be appreciated as it will speed up the process a little. If not, we will help you out with that when you get here. Please see the schedule below for times that we are asking students to come. Depending on the grade level, there are different steps we need to take to ensure devices are set up and issued correctly. Returning 7th and 8th graders will be issued the same device they used in the past year(s). 6th graders who attended 6th grade seminar will be issued the device they set up during the Seminar. Below is the schedule for iPad pick-up.
Monday August, 31st
9:00am-12:00pm - 7th grade families
12:00-3:00pm - 8th grade families
Tuesday September 1st
9:00am-1:00pm - 6th grade families

Meet the Teacher - September 1st
Our Office staff will also be available to help if you are having difficulties accessing the site. Please don't hesitate to call if you have quesitons.
In preparation for this night, please have your student ensure they know how to log-in to their @isd535.org email address. The email address is Studentidemail@example.com for example firstname.lastname@example.org. Student passwords were not reset, so check to see if your student remembers their password. If not, no worries, please call the Main Office at (507) 328-5900 and we will help you reset it.
Parents will receive a phone call notifying them if their student was absent at 5pm if an absence occurs that day.
To report a student absence due to illness, appointment, or other reason, families can either utilize the Skyward reporting system or call our attendance line at (507) 328-5910. To report an absence on Skyward, follow the directions below. If your student is ill, please give a description of the symptoms.
District Return to Learn Plan and other important documents
Block Scheduling for Distance Learning
The District will implement a later DL start time for secondary students of 8:25 AM - 3:10 PM, with a 45-minute lunch period. A later start time while in DL will offer benefits for our students. Given current transportation scenarios, we will not be able to continue a later start time if the District goes to in-person learning.
