Preparing for Winter Weather
With snowflakes in the 10-day forecast, please make sure your family and child care givers are signed up for snow day closure and delay texts or emails from our Transportation Department through FlashAlert. (Only families with verified mobile numbers in Family Access will receive texts from the District.) The District and school websites will post information by 6:30 a.m. Please take a moment to locate your Emergency Transportation Bulletin (ETB) that was mailed out in October or access the ETB online. Also take a moment to use SNOW E-Link to find your emergency snow route and make sure you check the chart below to become familiar with program changes due to delays and closures. For more information, including how programs such as field trips and athletics are affected during school closures, please click here

Get your children in the habit of saving money by participating in Creekside’s Bank Day. We have paired up with Washington Federal to create a Save at School program. As an incentive, the bank will give your kids $5.00 once their account is setup. For those of you with accounts already, please send your kiddos in with their deposits (limited to a max of $20 cash, no limit on checks) for a trip to the prize box! For more information or to get your child signed up to participate visit creeksideptsa.ourschoolpages.com/Program and get your child saving!
Keep your photos coming! Send in photos from fall activities (Hawk-A-Thon, Halloween Bash) and upcoming concerts and parties so we have plenty of candids of all of the kids for this year’s yearbook! Submit photos at link.entourageyearbooks.com
While you’re there, don’t forget to order your yearbook! This year’s yearbook will feature student artwork for the cover, plus at least 88 pages of full color photos of our Creekside kiddos. Yearbooks are distributed in class in June so kids have the opportunity to sign each other’s yearbooks before the summer. Order your yearbook at link.entourageyearbooks.com, or follow the link on the Creekside PTSA website under Items to Purchase.
