Salt Creek School District 48 will be on Spring Break starting on Saturday March 25 and running through Sunday April 2, 2017. All district schools and offices are closed over break. School will resume with a regular full day of school on Monday April 3, 2017.
Effective Monday, March 13, 2017, any change to your student’s regular dismissal routine MUST be made before 2:30pm. If the school office is not notified of a change by 2:30pm that day, we are required to dismiss your child according to their normal routine. Your child’s safety is our number one concern, and last minute changes negatively impact this. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

All forms must be filled out in their entirety (front and back) and fees must be paid by April 28th in order to complete the registration process.
This was truly the most pride we have seen our students take in MAP Testing this session. The students took their time, asked questions, and were so proud of their results. The MAP Tests are given to show our teachers and administration how are students are learning. Teachers use this information to better plan and differentiate their instruction. In celebration of such a great job, both Salt Creek and Swartz hosted a MAP Finale Dance Party. Great job everyone!
We do go outside most days in the winter for recess. We follow a temperature and wind chill chart that the Illinois provides schools for this purpose. Please make sure to dress your son/daughter for outside play all winter long. We suggest snow pants and boots as well, so students can have full access to our playground. If not, they are only able to play in dry areas such as the blacktop. When in doubt, please over dress. Students are unable to stay inside from recess for more than three days without a doctor's note saying it is necessary. If you have any questions, please contact the office.
