On Monday January 16, 2017, Salt Creek School District will not be in session, in observance of the birthdate of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King. School will resume with a regular full day of school on Tuesday January 17, 2017.
Our Winter Wonderland Dance will be held in the Swartz gym for Swartz students from 7:00 - 8:30pm Friday (12/16) night. A flyer went home with your son/daughter about the event. We all hope to see you there.
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.
We are very excited to offer after school care of our K-4 students on half days this year. Our before and after school program, Right at School, has planned this for us and new students are welcome. It is available for this Monday's half day (9/12). The cost is $30 per half day, or $25 each if you sign up for all five half day sessions (9/12, 11/8, 2/28, 4/4 & 5/12). Enrollment will be open today, 9/9, at 9am. Please make sure you provide a lunch for your son/daughter if they are attending. This program goes until 6pm.
You can sign up directly through Right at School by calling 855-at-school or online at https://apm.activecommunities.com/rightatschool/Activity_Search
We set a goal for students to read 180,000 pages in 180 days and they have surpassed that goal and haven't stopped! I'm beaming with pride!
