It is my pleasure to welcome you all back to the 2019-2020 school year. For those of you that are new to our school, we welcome you to the Three Creeks family!

Our goal is to provide a safe, positive, and supportive school experience so that all students feel valued and encouraged to achieve their personal best. 2018-2019 was a great school year full of firsts.

Registration

Online registration will open up for any returning TCSC student on Monday, July 29th. Please note, that teachers will not appear upon registering. We will release teachers after all registration is complete the first week of August. Please look for an email that indicates when you can log in to Skyward to see your teacher's name.


Back to School Night

Will be on August 12th from 5:00-6:30. Come out to meet your teacher, say hello to the staff, drop your school supplies off early, and find out who might be in your class!


School Supplies

Three Creeks will not be utilizing the PTO sponsored school supply vendor this year. Students will need to purchase their supplies outside the vendor. The items noted on the school supplies list, that need to be purchased from the bookstore will be for sale on Back to School Night, Monday, August 12th from 5:00-6:30 and can be taken directly to their classroom that evening. A full school supply list can be found by clicking here.


School Day Hours

School begins at 8:00 am and student drop off begins at 7:30am. In the interest of the safety of children, please refrain from dropping students off before 7:30 as there is no supervision during that time.


Car Pick Up and Drop Off

Parents picking up students from the school will enter the drive at the south end of the property. Students should remain in your cars until a staff member opens the door of car #1. School drops off in the morning will begin at 7:30 am and pickup for car riders will begin at 2:30. During pick up and drop off, parents should remain in their car unless they need to come in to speak to school personnel. Under no circumstances, should a car pickup, park in the parking lot across the street to get students in the walker line. We take student safety as our top priority and don't know which car or who they are getting in with when that happens. Car pickups take about 10 minutes. LPD will be contacted for any parent not utilizing the proper safety procedures for pickups, drop-offs and walkers. More detailed information can be found in our Parent FAQ here.


ELearning Days

Just a reminder that if school is canceled for any reason, Tri-Creek School Corporation will utilize an Elearning day to continue the child’s education. Three Creeks’ teachers utilize Google Classroom to deliver the content and all learning objectives and work will be posted by 9:00 am. Teachers will be available for support throughout the day. The eLearning Day Help Desk is available from 8:00am until 11:00pm the day of an eLearning Day. Support by phone can be reached by calling 219-750-1315. You can also receive support via email by emailing elearning@tricreek.k12.in.us.
