APPLY FOR FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH (FEDERAL PROGRAM)
Each year many families do not take advantage of this federal program due to thinking they wouldn't qualify. This program works on a sliding scale based on family income, # of children, living situation, etc... Please take a couple minutes to learn more about it.
Students who were on the program in this school district the prior school year are given a 30-school day grace period at the start of the new school year at their prior eligibility. BENEFITS EXPIRE ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year.
At Rock Creek, we take the safety and well being of our students very seriously and continue to implement programs, curriculum and philosophies that assist students in their day to day interactions with others.
We implement "In Focus" Mindfulness curriculum in which teachers take 10 min every day to teach students mindfulness. The curriculum used is research based and used as a guide to the teachers as they work with their students on their daily lessons.
In addition, we have implemented a Conflict Resolution program that focuses on teaching all students (TK-6) a unified approach to interacting with students in the classroom, cafeteria and on the playground.
Thank you in advance for your reinforcement at home regarding the proper way to handle situations that arise with other students.
