Greetings Creekside Family,

It is my goal to provide excellent customer service to all stakeholders. It is my desire that each staff member is aware of the process to conference with me. When requesting a meeting with me, please communicate directly with Ms. Scott in the front office. Ms. Scott has full access to my calendar and will ensure you are scheduled at my earliest convenience. Although, I have provided this procedure for a requested conference, I am also available for brief conversations during my daily morning walk of the campus and throughout the day. I recognize my duty to serve all stakeholders and want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to reach me directly or indirectly as needed.

Thank you

Fulton County Schools Policy on Outside Food and Snacks

Full Message Below

Greetings Creekside Family,

Last week, one of our learning community schools experienced some challenges relative to outside food that impacted the operations of their building. In light of those unfortunate events, I would like to take this time to review our policy regarding outside food and homemade items:

• Students are not permitted to bring outside food, for sale or distribution, to Creekside for any reason. This includes homemade meals/dinners, treats, prepackaged items, and meals provided by a delivery service like uber eats, grub hub, postmates, etc.

• All items are subject to be confiscated by an employee in our building and turned over to our school resource officer where the items will be held until further notice.

• Violation of this policy is a Tier II offense in our student code of conduct and we will support our students through this discipline cycle. Parents we are asking you to resist the temptation to have a food delivery service bring outside food to our campus as the food will be collected by an employee or staff and turned over to our school resource officer thus creating disciplinary consequences for your child.

Student safety is our first priority and our staff is unable to differentiate between items that have been compromised, items for which students have a food allergy, and items that are otherwise safe for consumption. To that end, all items regardless of their origin of purchase or creation, will be confiscated and turned over to our school resource officer. To be clear, again, I am referring to products that are brought into the school for sale or distribution as taking or eating these items that come from an unknown source constitute a negative choice for our students.
