How Salt Creek Beats the Heat!


Forecast says it will be hot on on Thursday, July 24.   Here’s what we have in place to beat the heat at Salt Creek :

  • Teachers are monitoring that students stay hydrated with water throughout the day.
  • The air-conditioned Multipurpose Room is open and available for students to read and sit with friends during recess time.
  • Noon duties are reminding students to drink water and that they can enter the Multipurpose Room during recess.
  • Teachers are limiting and modifying outdoor activities.


First Day of School, July 23!

First Day of School

The first day of school is fast approaching, and we are eager to start another great school year!  We will see you all on Wednesday, July 23!  We suggest that you plan to arrive to school early on the first day, and no later than 8:10 a.m. everyday to ensure that you are not late.   School begins promptly at 8:15 a.m. and dismissal for the first day is 1:15 p.m. for 1st-6th grade and 1:05 p.m. for Kindergarten.  Students may line up on the blacktop and wait for their teacher.  Although there is staff supervising students walking the track and waiting in their lines, we do ask that students save playing with friends for recess and lunch.  Please make sure that you review the dismissal plan with your child, whether it’s riding the bus, going to DASH or YMCA, getting picked up, or walking home.  We allow 15 minutes grace period at dismissal before we ask students that are still waiting to be picked up to wait in the quad area.  This measure is for safety of our students.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Kindergarten parents must accompany their children to the kindergarten area and remain there in line for one-to-one handoff.  Kindergarten bus riders will be picked up by Salt Creek staff and walked over to the kindergarten area.

If you were not able to come to our Info Fair on Saturday, please come into the school office to pick up your Information packet.  You may also provide residency verification if  you have not done so.

We will see you all on Wednesday!!

Mrs. Perez and Mrs. Du-Song

10th Anniversary Tile Fundraiser Is Back On PTAvenue

Our 10th Anniversary Tile Fundraiser was a big hit with Salt Creek Families! So due to overwhelming demand, we are selling additional tiles on our new PTG website (PTAvenue.)

Click here to visit the PTG’s online store and purchase your tile.

These tiles will only be on sale through July 30th. Tiles will be delivered August 1st and MUST BE PAINTED at Daydreams Ceramic Cafe no later than August 11th to be installed in the Salt Creek courtyard (outside the school office).

For those of you who purchased a tile in June, we hope you enjoyed visiting Daydreams Cafe over the summer to paint your tile. If you purchased a tile in June and did not paint it before the July 11th deadline, there is one more opportunity for you to paint your tile before they are installed at the school. Please have your tile painted no later than August 11th.

If you have not painted your tile by August 11th, you will miss out on the opportunity to have your tile installed at the school.
