ALL parents are invited to this opportunity to learn about CVESD’s plan to meet specific goals that impact your child’s learning experience at our schools!  This plan outlines how District funds are used, and we want YOUR input, opinion, and feedback!  This plan is called the LCAP, or Local Control Accountability Plan.  Find out more about it and participate in the Thought Exchange during this meeting.

This meeting is not only for parents of students in Dual Immersion or parents of English Learners, but ALL parents!

We hope you join us on Thursday, March 14 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the multipurpose room at Salt Creek!

Please participate in the LCAP Thought Exchange!


Salt Creek Parents!

You should have received via email a link to the CVESD LCAP Thought Exchange this week!  This is your opportunity to provide your input and thoughts into how the District supports important initiatives and programs for your child’s learning.  You can provide your thoughts about our VAPA (Music and Art) program, reading programs, school safety, personnel, and more!

If you did not receive the link, you can click the link below and participate!

In addition, we will be having laptops available in the auditorium on March 14th during our DI ELAC meeting from 8:30-9:30 a.m. so that we can help explain the process to you and facilitate your participation!

Attendance Concern Letters and Truancy Letters


Dear Salt Creek Parents,

At the end of each month our Attendance Office sends home Notifications of Attendance Concerns and Truancy Letters.  Attendance is extremely important, and students should only miss school for reasons justified per District Board Policy.  Should you need to clear up an unexcused absence or tardy, please contact our new Attendance Health Secretary, Ms. Irene Lemos.

Strategies to improve your child’s attendance include:

  • Make doctor/dental appointments before or after school or during breaks.
  • Plan vacations during our scheduled Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer Breaks.
  • Should you need to be out of town for an emergency for 5 days or more, please ask for an Independent Study Contract 2 weeks in advance from the Attendance Office.
  • Bring doctor’s notes to excuse appointments.
  • If tardiness is the issue, set your alarm a few minutes earlier and adjust morning routines using a timer, or have all backpacks and clothes laid out and ready to go the night before!

Thank you for working with us to help improve your child’s attendance!  The more students are here, the more they learn!
