Welcome to our home for resources in support of our military families at Salt Creek.

If you are a new family moving into the Salt Creek area – WELCOME!  You will enjoy our school and community!  We have a wonderful Parent Teacher Group (PTG), lots of parent engagement, a variety of after school programs, and about 30% of our students participate in the Spanish Dual Immersion Program. Salt Creek is one of the larger schools in the Chula Vista Elementary School District with an average enrollment of about 970 students K-6th grade.   Our registration process for the 2017-2018 school year began in March, and although we are hopeful to accommodate all of our resident students, some grade levels may already be full.  We take registrations in the order in which they are received, and for any families registering later, we do inform you of the possibility of being overflowed to a nearby school until space becomes available.  In the event that this happens to any families, the district provides free transportation.  To prevent having to overflow our own resident students, we are not taking new Zone Transfers this year.  We hope to make your transition to Salt Creek a smooth one!  Please contact the school office at (619) 397-5494 or contact me, the school principal, Lalaine Perez at lalaine.perez@cvesd.org for more information!

We are excited to have our Military Families Support Program to assist families transitioning into our school community, as well as provide support throughout the school year.  Funded through a grant through the Department of Defense, teams from seven CVESD schools received training and resources from the Military Child Education Coalition. Your Military Families Support Team is:

Lalaine Perez, Principal – lalaine.perez@cvesd.org

Vanessa Valdivia, School Secretary – vanessa.valdivia@cvesd.org

Emma Williams, Attendance/Health Secretary – emma.williams@cvesd.org

Gayle Doddridge, KIDCO Support Staff – gayle.doddridge@cvesd.org

Mary Mendoza, 6th Dual Immersion Teacher-mary.mendoza@cvesd.org

In addition, we have a student Ambassadors Program, where a team of responsible 5th-6th grade leaders greet and give your child a tour of Salt Creek on their first day of school, and follow up with your child on their transition one week later.

Please feel free to speak to any one of us to find out more!

We are also happy to continue our partnership with the University of Southern California, where we receive support from a Social Worker Intern, who can work directly with our military students and their families.  You can visit their Building Capacity and Welcoming Practices in Military Connected Schools website where you can read more and access their newsletters.   If you would like a referral, please contact someone from our Military Families Support Team.
