First Days of School
- Clear Creek administration staff and secretaries return to school by the first of August.
- Parents are encouraged to take care of as much “school business” before the first day of school.
- Ensure your student is registered and has been assigned a teacher before Meet the Teacher Night.
- Deposit money into your child’s meal account.
- Deliver medications to the school nurse and ensure all appropriate medication paperwork is on file.
- Ensure all information on the student registration card is up to date including emergency contacts and phone numbers for everyone listed.
- Ensure administrative staff knows of any special needs your child has.
- Set up a conference time with the classroom teacher if needed.
- Ensure your child knows what to do for lunch. Buying school lunch? Has lunch box?

The First Day of School
- Parents will be able to walk their student to the classrooms.
- Parents may take pictures of their child as they enter school and/or classroom.
- Staff will be on duty to help you and your child find your way to the classroom.
- Once in the classroom, wish your student a good day, kiss him/her good-bye and leave the classroom promptly.
- Many young students tend to cry and cling to parents as they realize mom and dad will not be staying in class with them.
- It is best for your child not to prolong the impending separation.
- Teachers and staff work very hard to engage the student so that they forget mom and dad are no longer around and begin to quickly work with the students to help them understand mom and dad will pick them up at the end of the school day.
- As heart-breaking as it may be to leave your crying child, please know that 99.9% of our students recover soon after parents are gone.
- Parents will be contacted in the event a child is not able to stop crying after a reasonable amount of time.
TEACHERS WILL NEED TO GIVE ALL OF THEIR ATTENTION TO THEIR NEW STUDENTS.
PARENTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONFERENCE WITH THE TEACHER OR HAVE A “QUICK MINUTE” WITH THE TEACHER UPON DELIVERY OF THEIR STUDENT TO THE CLASSROOM.
