Hey this is Matt Scott, Principal @ Creekside Primary. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
We had a wonderful start to our school year. I want to thank all of our students, parents and our Creekside staff for making last Friday a great 1st day of school.
We have a super supportive PTO at Creekside and I am very thankful for everything that is done for our school. Our PTO supplied lunch and snacks for our staff workday. Thank you PTO!
On Friday, I was also very proud of our students. We had a successful day of wearing masks at school. Parents please make sure you are sending your student with their mask each day.
Parents, it is very important you take your child’s temperature each day before leaving for school or before putting your child on the bus. We want to keep our school a safe place.
Just a reminder for Kindergarten, tomorrow is girls only day. Our boys will come Tue and Wed this week and then all K kids will come on Thursday.
If we can ever help you please don’t hesitate to come by the school, email us, or give us a call. We want you to have a great school year.
That’s all for tonight. Have a great week of school and #gocreekside!
