Dear Parents of Ranch Creek Elementary School,
We’re enjoying a wonderful start to the school year. I sincerely hope your students have had a fantastic time during their first days of school! Here is some important information for all parents:
Testing Days: Thursday and Friday are elementary testing days in District 20 and school is not in session; students will attend only for a 90-minute testing appointment with their classroom teacher.
BYOD Registration: On Thursday and Friday, 4th and 5th Grade students and their parents will come to the Library before or after testing, or anytime, to register the student’s device for use during the year. Both the student and the parent must sign the Responsible Use Agreement.
Solar Eclipse Safety: On Monday, August 21, during the time of the eclipse, Ranch Creek students will be indoors. No students will go outdoors to view the eclipse, and we will observe indoor recess. Parents may choose to keep their children home on Monday to view the eclipse as a family, and the absence will be excused; please call the attendance line and let us know if you will be keeping your child at home. (Classes in the modulars will travel in and out of the main building for lunch, under the care and direction of their teachers.) Half-day Kindergarten students will be dismissed to parents inside the building; please make arrangements to park and meet your half-day kindergartener inside the main entrance on Monday only.
Parents, please always let us know any questions or concerns you have, especially if you are new to the Ranch Creek community!
Warmly, and always in your service,
Susan Paulson, Principal
Ranch Creek Elementary School – an IB World School
