A Message From Mr. Lipp...

As spring approaches, we are looking for your support and help in maintaining the excellent educational opportunities that our children have at Canyon Creek School District. This year Canyon Creek School Trustees have voted and approved in asking our local taxpayers to support a Technology Levy. A Technology Levy is designed to fund technology acquisition and depreciation. This levy is not a general fund levy but rather a specific levy that is designed to help schools stay current with technology needs. Currently technology demand at Canyon Creek is at an all-time high. Students are using technology in many different ways at school and our computers specifically are being used all day long by our students. Obviously with this type of usage, we wear our technology out very rapidly. The idea of the Technology Levy is to continue to be able to replace our computers and printers when needed. By approving out Technology Levy we are able to support our students' needs and allow for them to use technology in a way that gives them the skills they need to be ready for the workforce. Computers are no longer an option in schools but a necessary item to keep up with the modern educational trends. 

Currently all expenses for technology come from our general fund. This is a huge burden on our general fund which is already very stretched, so it limits our ability to use this money on technology. The end result being that we are not able to replace our technology, resulting in outdated equipment or a shortage of access for our students. This levy is very important for our students' needs, I cannot express in words how much this levy would help our school not only in providing current technology equipment for our students, but also taking some pressure off of our general fund so that we can stretch our budget further to keep from asking our community to pay more taxes for our general fund.

I encourage all of our tax payers to register to vote and share your voice in this decision. I am grateful for the support we have at Canyon Creek School and encourage all of you to make a difference in your children's education and future by voting. I encourage you to call me at the school if you need more information to make your voting decision. 406-656-4471

Thank you for your support!

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.

Sincerely,

Canyon Creek Office Staff

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!

Reminder...

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.
