Norton Creek Open House
You are cordially invited to an open house event here at Norton Creek the evening of September 23, 2021! We will have three time slots for you to sign up for using THIS SIGNUP GENIUS LINK. Please, pick one time slot (5:00-5:30, 5:30-6:00, or 6:00-6:20) clicking on the appropriate class(es) for your Eagle(s) and the time slot that works best for you. These time slots allow for a 20 minute visit to the building (using a scavenger hunt format to guide your way around the building meeting teachers) followed by ten minutes to empty the parking lot and bring in the next families. Guests who come for the 6:00-6:20 time slot do not have a shorter visit; we just don't need to have the ten minutes on the slot to change out the parking lot.
To structure all of this fun, here are our guidelines for the evening:
- Regardless of vaccination status and in accordance with Governor Pritzker's executive order, please, wear a mask that fully covers your nose and mouth with straps that wrap around your ears.
- Please, socially distance when inside the building .
- We love our Eagles(students); however, to facilitate social distancing, they will need to stay at home.
- When signing up, you will notice 10 signups per slot in each classroom. This not only helps with social distancing but also with 442 Eagles, it keeps our parking lot orderly for all of our guests and staff.
Please call the office with any questions you may have at 331-228-2700.
