  1. How to set up a prolonged absence

               Should your child be away for a known extended absence (like a trip,) please       

                              Inform your child’s teacher AND email Kris Shoup kshoup@sd48.bc.ca

  1. Bus schedules are available from the office upon request. District website (https://sd48seatosky.org/) has route information. Just click on the Parents top tab.
  2. Dismissal before 2:37: Please let us know. Email is good to the teacher and Kris Shoup kshoup@sd48.bc.ca
  3. PAC on Facebook: search “Spring Creek pac”. This is a great way to keep informed and to volunteer!
  4. Criminal Record check form from office will ensure you don’t have to pay to have this done. All volunteers for school field trips must have this completed and on file at the school. Parent volunteers are often more helpful in a class other than their child’s.
  5. Nut aware vs Nut free: We ask parents to NOT send food with nuts to school. There are students and staff with allergies. If nutty food arrives, we will ask the student to take it home, and we will replace it with nut-free alternatives that we keep on hand.
  6. Sign In Process: to enter the classroom wings of the school, parents are to sign in at the office and wear a guest badge.
