DI Parent Network & ELAC Meeting this Wednesday!

Come start off your Valentine’s Day sharing what you LOVE about Salt Creek and CVESD through our Thought Exchange survey!  Provide input using this tool to also advocate for programs and improvements that you would love to see implemented!  Laptops will be provided to collect your input during the meeting!  In addition, details about the newly implemented ELPAC test for English Learners will be shared.  If you are a parent of an English Learner, please come and learn how you can support your child in their English Language Development as it is measured by this new state test that replaces the CELDT!


Notifications of Attendance Concerns 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, please contact our Attendance Health Secretary.

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!
