Review of Absence Reasons

Dear Canyon Creek Families,

There has seemed to be some confusion about absences and what is considered an excused absence and what is not. Below are some of the rules we have listed in the handbook regarding absences. Thank you for taking the time to review these.

Reporting Absences:

1. parents are asked to call our attendance hotline prior to 9:00 a.m. or send a note to excuse student absences

2. Absences will not be excused unless the school receives a phone call or note, signed and dated by the parent, stating the reason for the student's absence

Excused Absences:

1. Personal illness

2. Appointments with health professionals

3. Legal appointments

4. Emergency family situations

Calling in a student will either mark it as an excused absence or unexcused absence, based on the reason. Not calling in a student at all will mark the student as truant and will result in you being notified by our automated system.

Hopefully, after reviewing these rules we have cleared up any confusion.


Canyon Creek Office Staff

School Board Trustee Vacancy

Canyon Creek School District #4 is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the School Board. At the February 20, 2017 meeting at 6:30 p.m., the trustees intend to select someone to serve on the board until the May 2017 school election. At that time, the appointee will need to seek election in order to remain on the board.

The Board of Trustees holds regular meetings on the third Monday of each month. Occasionally, emergencies arise which require special meetings in addition to the regular monthly meeting. All trustees also serve on committees which meet occasionally. The position requires an investment of time to attend these meetings, as well as time to obtain and study information packets pertaining to issues, policies, proposals, finances and other matters prior to meeting. Board members are also encouraged to attend two or three conferences or workshops each year.

If you are a resident of the district and registered voter who is interested in serving your community, committed to the education of children, willing to contribute time, and able to work with diverse groups for the betterment of the school, then please consider applying.

Applications may be obtained at the school. Please return your completed application, along with a letter of interest, to Business Manager/ Clerk Jeanne Carroll, Canyon Creek School, 3139 Duck Creek Road, Billings, MT 59101. Questions?? Call 656-4471, ext. 202.



Please Take Note....

To avoid confusion at the end of the day regarding how your child will get home, please make sure to follow these helpful tips:

1. if you are unsure whether your child will remember to go to the car line or to the bus, please either send a note with them or call the office by 2:45 pm so we can give them a reminder slip at the end of the day (656-4471)

2. If you have a change in plans and your child needs to do something different than what they were told in the morning, please call the office and we will give them a reminder slip at the end of the day with the new plan

3. If your child is going in the car line with another child, please make sure to let their teacher know in advance with either a note or an email

4. If your child is going on the bus with another child (either a different bus or a different stop to get off on)- each of the involved children's parents will need to send a note with their child detailing what the plan is. The notes will then need to be brought to the office by the children and signed by an office staff member.

If you have any questions regarding any of these tips, please contact Ms. Egan at 406-656-4471. Thank you!


Just a reminder that Canyon Creek is a Healthy Choice School. Please help us promote healthy choices for our student's lunches, snacks, and birthday treats! That also means that we do discourage bringing candy to school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
