Review of Absence Reasons

Dear Canyon Creek Families,

There has seemed to be some confusion about absences and what is considered an excused absence and what is not. Below are some of the rules we have listed in the handbook regarding absences. Thank you for taking the time to review these.

Reporting Absences:

1. parents are asked to call our attendance hotline prior to 9:00 a.m. or send a note to excuse student absences

2. Absences will not be excused unless the school receives a phone call or note, signed and dated by the parent, stating the reason for the student's absence

Excused Absences:

1. Personal illness

2. Appointments with health professionals

3. Legal appointments

4. Emergency family situations

Calling in a student will either mark it as an excused absence or unexcused absence, based on the reason. Not calling in a student at all will mark the student as truant and will result in you being notified by our automated system.

Hopefully, after reviewing these rules we have cleared up any confusion.

Medications at School

Parents, if your child(ren) needs medication administered at the school, you must complete a Medication Consent Form. This form must be completed for both prescription and non-prescription medication. A doctor's signature is required for all prescription medication.

If your child(ren) use an inhaler, he/she may keep it in his/her backpack, but an Asthma Health Plan Form and Medication Consent Form must be filled out.

If your child(ren) have an allergy that the school should be aware of, then the Emergency Care Plan Sheet and Medication Consent Form must be filled out.

Music Informances

A music informance for each class of k-5 general music has been scheduled during the month of February. An informance is a chance for parents and/or guardians to see what a typical music class looks like at Canyon Creek School. It is similar to a performance in that there is an audience, but instead of performing set pieces for a program, students simply participate in music class.

Below are the days and times the informances will take place. Your are invited to come during your child's music class to sit and watch the class in action. Please contact Mrs. Murphy with any questions.
