School Update (4-28-20)

Dear Canyon Creek Parents, We are reaching out to you today to let you know about the packet pickup and dropoffs for the remainder of the school year. At our April 20th board meeting, the board of trustees voted to continue the remainder of the school year online or with packets. We know this time of year can be very busy and we want to make sure you can plan ahead for your student(s) school work. This Friday, May 1st we will have the pickup and drop off from 3:00-6:30. We ask that you come at whatever time is most convenient for you. Our next packet pickup and school work drop off will be Tuesday, May 19th. This will be a mandatory pick up for all students. We will have all of their locker, desk, and personal items in a bag ready for pick up. We will also have our lost and found items outside for you to look through. This mandatory pick up will be from 4:00-8:00. Again, we ask that you come at the time that is most convenient for you. Our final packet drop off will be Wednesday, May 27th. This will be another mandatory drop off for all students. We will need all the school materials; Chromebooks, classroom novels, library books, school work, etc. be turned in at this time. This final mandatory drop off will be from 3:00-7:00. Again, we ask that you come to the school at any time that is convenient for you. Keep in mind that we will continue to be practicing social distancing during these pickup sessions. We will have a series of X’s on the sidewalk that we will ask you to stand on while you move up to the front door as the line continues. We have had some families request that we scan, mail, or deliver the work. Unfortunately, we are not doing this because to accommodate every individual exceeds our ability to provide an efficient service. We will do our best to keep people safe and only one person will be allowed to pick up the work. We want to thank all of you for the support you have provided to the school and students. We appreciate all of you! Please call if you have any questions. 406-656-4471. See you Friday!

Meal Information, Medication Pick-up (3/16/2020)

Canyon Creek Families,

Per Governor Bullock we as a district will continue to provide meals to our free and reduced families. We ask that you please call the office at 406-656-4471 and leave the names of your students who need meals by 10 am each day. This will give us a more accurate idea of the number of breakfast and lunches to prepare. Pick up of these meals will be from 11:30-12:30 each day at the bus parking lot parallel to our playground. Our meals will include a hot lunch to go and a grab and go breakfast for the morning. This will go into effect starting Tuesday, March 17th.

Also, for those students who have medication on-site that you need during the shutdown, please stop at the school during our meal pick up time of 11:30-12:30. If you need to schedule a different time please call the school and we will set up a time to meet you.

Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter. We as a community will get through this together.

Respectfully,
Brent Lipp and Haley Morales

Covid-19 School Closure Announcement (3/15/2020)

Attention Canyon Creek Parents:

As you are aware Governor Bullock has closed all schools in the state of Montana from Monday, March 16th-Friday March 27th. Please do not send your students to school. We understand this may be a hardship for some you, but due to COVID-19 and the risks, this has to be done. We ask that you limit students’ social exposure to prevent the spread of the virus. At this time we are not providing online learning opportunities but will be working on some academic options during this two-week timeframe the governor has given us. If you are a family that is apart of our Give H.O.P.E. backpack program, we will be reaching out to you in the next 24 hours. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.

Respectfully,
Brent Lipp & Haley Morales

Give H.O.P.E. Pantry


Dear Parents and Guardians of Canyon Creek Students:

In an effort to support our families, the staff at Canyon Creek School have received a grant to develop the Give H.O.P.E. Pantry (Helping Other People Eat) through the support of Cole's Pantry in Bridger, Montana. Cole was a second-grade student who attended Bridger School. In 2009, he died in a tragic horse accident. To honor him, his sister Fallon started Cole's Pantry to feed families in rural Montana. Currently, 13 schools in Montana are part of Cole's Pantry and over 500 kids were fed each weekend in 2018.

Parent Newsletters and Mailings

In an effort to stay efficient and keep parents updated on what is going on at Canyon Creek School and events that may affect their child(ren), Canyon Creek has the option for second mailings. This option is for families where the parents have separate households. It offers a way for both parties to stay involved in their child(rens) school lives. If you would like to set up a second mailing household, please contact Ms. Egan.

Buses

NOTE: The contracted bus service for Canyon Creek School District supplies buses that are equipped with video surveillance cameras. These cameras will record all video and audio conversations at all times.
