Provo City School District

Spring Creek Elementary School

December 3, 2023

Dear Parents, 

With cold, snowy weather approaching and the outside chance that the district would need to call an “online learning day” due to weather conditions, K-2 grade students will be sent home with take-home packets of work the night before a forecasted storm. Only students in grades 3-6 will take home Chromebooks and access their learning online if this happens. Please note that in the event take-home packets and Chromebooks are sent home it DOES NOT mean that the next school day will be an online learning day. That decision will be made the following morning by the school district. Chromebooks and packets will be sent home just in case weather doesn’t permit schools opening. Again, the possibility of an online learning day happening is very small but we want to be prepared in case that happens. 

Thank you for your support in sending students with coats, hats, and gloves. Cold weather is upon us and students play outside even when there is snow! We have a lot of exciting activities happening the next few weeks. Please look over the rest of the announcements.

Spring Creek Hawks don’t fly, they SOAR!

Mrs. Snow, Principal

Have your child fill out the wishlist that will be sent home tomorrow and bring money in a ziplock bag or envelope with their name on it. Wishlists can also be found on the school website.

Please see the attached schedule to find out when your student will be shopping with their class.

For a preview of everything that is for sale at the Santa Shop, please see the PTA YouTube channel.

The Santa Shop will also be open on Thursday from 4:30-6:30pm, and Friday during the school day, for parents and those in the community to come shop! 

We need all the help we can get!

You will be entered into a gift card drawing for every shift for which you volunteer!

We can’t wait to celebrate the holidays with your students! Hope to see you at the Santa Shop!”
