Apply for secondary transfers FEB. 2-27 2015

posted Jan 7, 2015, 4:21 PM by Clear Lake

Current fifth grade students (entering sixth grade in September) who want to attend a school other than their assigned school next fall (2015-16) must apply for in-district transfer (IDT) between February 2 and February 27, 2015.

The application window must be earlier than normal this year to coincide with changes to the district’s student data information system. IDT application forms will be updated to reflect the February dates. Please do not submit a transfer application form that reflects a deadline other than February 2015.

IDT applications received after February 27, 2015, will not be considered.

IDT request forms can be picked up at any middle school office, and must be completed and returned to the student’s assigned middle school during the application date window. There is no guarantee a transfer request will be approved. Students attending school on an IDT are not eligible for bus transportation.

More information on the in-district transfer process can be found on the Student Transfers page on the district website, http://www.salemkeizer.org/parents/student-transfers.

Safe Family Fun Friday, October 31st

posted Oct 23, 2014, 4:26 PM by Clear Lake

To All!

A week from tomorrow several youth will be out on the hunt for some sweet treats, creative costumes and fun activities.  Again this year, several of our fire stations and engine crews will be hosting trick – or – treating, hot cider, cocoa, engine/station tours and even a hospitality tent.

We would very much appreciate you sharing the attached flier with the children and families you know.  We hope to see a wide array of costumes this year!

AND, we have begun our annual holiday toy and food drive collections.  Our engine crews will be out and about in Mid-November delivering food collection barrels to various elementary schools in our fire district.  If you haven’t been contacted in the past for this activity, please let me know and we will get you on our contact list for our Toy & Food Drive Coordinator, Melissa, to reach out to you.  For now, please begin to spread the word, all of our fire stations are collection sites for canned foods, and toys/gifts.  Last year we served just under 300 families, help us serve that many and more this holiday season.  If you would like to come assist with the food sorting and delivery mark your calendar, for Saturday, December 20th.  We begin the food sorting at 8:00am at our Brooks facility: 4910 Brooklake Rd NE, Building #1.

Thank you for you continued support, if there is ever anything we can do for you please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Thank you,

It's that time of year again.  Clear Lake staff is very excited to show off our new floors at Open House.  

We hope you can join us from 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm on Tuesday, September 2nd.  This we be an informal time for students to come in and meet their teachers, see their classrooms and drop off classroom supplies.  Class lists will be posted at this time and we are asking parents to understand that there is a lot of consideration that goes into creating these class lists, therefore we will not be making any changes to them.  Our PTA will be here handing out lots of information about upcoming events and our kitchen will be open to collect money for lunches.  We hope that this opportunity to come in early will help ease back to school jitters.  

See you then, if you have any questions our office hours are from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
