Hey this is Matt Scott, Principal @ Creekside Primary. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

We will have holiday pictures this Thursday, October 29th. Virtual students can be made from 3:30-4:30 this Thursday as well. We will not have make-ups for holiday pictures.
Just a reminder, please do not send your child to school if they have a fever, have a cough, or they have thrown up. We want to keep our school a safe place from germs. Please stay in direct communication with your child’s teacher and our school nurse if your child is sick and needs to stay home.
