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.
