Latest Creekside Emails to families

Sent:   Thursday, Nov 5 at 10:55 AM 

Subject:  Attendance Update Starting 11/9/2020

We are writing to let you know that, starting Monday, 11/9/2020, you will see some changes to attendance recording for your student(s) under distance learning.  

We are switching from a three-code system to a two-code system as follows:

Distance Learning Engaged (DLE), or code 1, will take the place of both code 3 and code 4 in order to simplify reporting your student as having met the attendance requirement, “present,” for a given day or class period.

Distance Learning Not Engaged (DLN), or code 2, will continue to be used to identify distance learning “absences”.

We look forward to launching this simplified system and appreciate your ongoing support this school year.

Thank you,

CVUSD Student Services

9/18/2020 Email to Families-

Drive-by student materials pick up #2

Dear Creekside Families,

We hope this email finds you doing well.  

We will be holding another drive-by student materials pick up event.  Additional items that students need at home for distance learning are ready to go.  Items include backordered workbooks, P.E. jump ropes, musical instruments, etc.  Every student (Main/Hybrid and CVVA) has something!  CVVA students will have an opportunity to pick up jump ropes, yearbooks, musical instruments, Chromebooks/Mifis, and/or bags of student items from last year.  

It is not necessary for students to come.  We don’t want them to be late to class!  

WHEN: The Week of Sept. 21-25.  Please see the schedule below for grade and first letter of last name.  This will be a very quick pickup, but if you come and the line is long, consider returning a little later in the time window to avoid blocking Center Street.  Tuesday and Friday is our RtI, by invitation only small group support time. If your scheduled pick up time is 8:00am-9:00am and your student has been sent an email invitation to meet with a teacher at 9:00am, please plan to arrive at Creekside no later than 8:30am. We want to make sure that students don’t miss their classes.

*Another option is to have someone other than the student come to the pick-up. 


Step 1: Place an 8.5”x11” piece of paper with your student’s name (last name, first name) and Student ID printed clearly in large letters on the passenger dashboard or window.  Please write CVVA if your student is in CVVA.

Step 2: Drive by the front of the Creekside cafeteria (main parking lot).  Staff will be there to pass out materials through your front passenger window. 

Step 3: If you have not exchanged your Chromebook or Mifi received prior to August 12th, please bring those items with you, park, and walk to the Main Office.  Krista Richey will be there to assist you. 


Please wear your mask and do not exit your car.  


Please Note:

  1. 6th grade - Please return any musical instruments not returned to Canyon at the start of the year.

  2. 7th-8th grade - Please return any textbooks or library books checked out last year.  Notices were just sent home from Carol Nalty, our librarian. 

  3. Any purchased 2019-20 Yearbooks not already picked up will be available.

  4. Yearbooks from last year (2019-20) are still available if you would like to purchase one.  Please have $50 (exact cash) or a check ready and payable to Creekside Middle School. 

Please come at the time indicated below based on your student’s grade and the first letter of their last name.

Starting 9/14/20, all Main Option (not CVVA) students will begin school on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:00am.  This is the published MTSS/RtI time in the Distance Learning Schedule here.  

The week of September 14th-18th 

Students will meet with their advisory teachers on Tuesday, September 15th and Friday September 18th at 9:00am to complete Second Step lessons. This is our social and emotional learning curriculum. The rest of the schedule for the week remains the same. 


Starting September 21st and through the rest of the year

We will be beginning our RTI Tutorial where students will only attend a tutorial session if they are invited by one of their teachers. Otherwise, they will be expected to be doing independent classwork (an at home study hall), in which they will not need to login to a live class. 


If you have any questions please call our front office for assistance. (510)247-0665
