Rodeo Day-September 13th
We are excited to announce the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is coming to Parr Elementary this year! On Friday, September 13th, all students will be participating in our Rodeo Day. The students will be rotating from classroom to classroom to learn about different components of the rodeo.
Here is some important information you need to know:
· The campus will be closed to parents this day. The parking lot will be full due to speakers on campus and students will be rotating through varied locations around the building.
· Students are encouraged to dress in “rodeo attire” (boots, cowboy hats, belt buckles, etc) as long as it appropriate for school.
· The cafeteria will be serving sack lunches. If your child brings his/her lunch, they may still do so. All students will eat lunch from 11:30 – 12:30. Parents will be unable to eat lunch with their student(s) on this day.
· If you plan to pick up your child early for any reason, please either let his/her teacher know in advance. This will allow the teacher adequate time to have your child ready and will assist the office in locating your child’s class in the day’s schedule.
· This will be like a field trip for your child. Please discuss with him/her appropriate behavior and encourage them to be respectful to all the speakers we have present.
This is a free event that the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is providing for our campus. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.

Clear Creek ISD has implemented a new online volunteer application form for parents and community members, which now requires volunteers to register on an annual basis. As of July 15, all volunteer records have been deactivated, and effective July 16, both former and prospective volunteers must apply/reapply using CCISD’s new volunteer application to be eligible for upcoming volunteer opportunities in the 2019-2020 school year. It can take up to 3-4 days to be approved. If you think you may be volunteering this year, go ahead and take care of applying. We appreciate all our volunteers!

Dine Out to Donate
The Clear Creek Education Foundation is gearing up to host its sixth annual “Dine Out to Donate” on Monday, October 7. The process is simple – citizens enjoy a meal at a participating restaurant, and in return the restaurant will donate a portion of the proceeds to CCEF to benefit the students and teachers of the Clear Creek Independent School District.
This event brings fun, district-wide competition between all CCISD schools. The top three elementary, intermediate and high schools with the highest percentage of participation based on student population will each win the following 1st - $1,000, 2nd - $500 and 3rd - $250. Overall, the top school wins the “Top Dog Trophy” which comes with very special bragging rights.

Change of Transportation
Reminder, please note that any transportation changes during the school day should be in the form of a written note signed by the parent and/or guardian. If faxing your note to the office, please include student and teacher name, date, and change of transportation with a copy of your driver’s license. The school fax number is 281-284-4105. All transportation changes must be in the office by 2:30 p.m. so we can inform the teacher in time for dismissal. Thank you for your diligence in this matter. *Please note-if calling the school to change transportation, you must be able to fax in your request in writing with a copy of your photo ID. No calls about change in transportation will be allowed unless accompanied with this note. This allows us to ensure that safety procedures are followed and students’ whereabouts are closely monitored.
What to do if your child is absent
This information is help clarify some attendance questions and give you helpful information regarding our state’s mandatory attendance policies.
Excused/Unexcused Absences –
When your child is absent, you must provide a written, signed note within three (3) days of returning to school that includes the following information:
· Name of student
· Reason & date(s) the child was absent
· Parent’s signature
The Texas Education Code requires a written, signed note as phone calls and emails are not accepted. If a note is not received within three (3) days, the absence may not be excused. If a student has three (3) or more unexcused absences the parent will receive a truancy warning letter. Five (5) or more consecutive absences due to illness require a doctor’s excuse when returning to school.
Medical Appointments during school –
If your child attends a medical appointment during the school day and then comes to school after his/her appointment, please bring a note from the doctor’s office so your child’s attendance can be marked as “Medical” which will not count as a state absence.
Daily Attendance –
Students arriving after 10:00am are counted absent for the day, unless they arrive with a doctor’s note dated for a visit that day.
If a student arrives after 8:10 am, they will be counted tardy. If a student misses consistent instruction time by being tardy or checked out early, this information is sent to our attendance officer.
Unusual Causes of Absence (Ex: Vacations or Family Events) –
A “Request for Excused Absence for Unusual Causes” form may be picked up from the front office, signed and returned two (2) weeks prior to the absence to excuse unusual causes such as vacations or family events.
Additional attendance information can be found in the Student Handbook or on the district website at www.ccisd.net.
