Welcome to Harris Creek Elementary School! We are excited to have your child join us in Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year!
As a multi-track year-round school, we placed all children on tracks 1, 2, 3, or 4. We first place all siblings of current Harris Creek students onto the same tracks as their sibling(s). Next, we used the track preference information provided to us that was completed when registering at Harris Creek. Finally, we placed the children with no track preference information into the remaining spots. We were not able to accommodate all first or second choice requests, but we hope the track your child has been assigned will work for you. Every year, around January, we offer parents the opportunity to request a track change for the following school year. We try to accommodate these track changes if we have room on the preferred track.
During the first week of school, the Kindergarten students will only come to school for 1 day, which is referred to as “staggered entry”. During that time, teachers assess students, introduce them to key staff in the school, and allow them to become acclimated to the school procedures within these small groups.
During staggered entry, your child will be with both teachers on their track. After the staggered entry days, there will be a “Meet the Teacher” event for you and your child to meet their official teacher on their track. This will be a drop-in event. When you register, our Data Manager Ms. Edgreen processes your account and you will recieve your students Staggered Entry Date and Track Assignment via the USPS! If you have not received this letter, and registered before April 10th, please phone school and ask to speak to Ms. Edgreen to have another copy mailed to your address of record.

The “Meet and Treat” evenings will include information to prepare you and your child for kindergarten at Harris Creek Elementary School. Parents will receive information about kindergarten in the gym while rising kindergartners spend time in a kindergarten classroom with a kindergarten teacher. At the conclusion of the parents' meeting, the rising kindergartners will return to the gym to join their families. Then families can meet on the playground for a treat and the opportunity to meet other rising kindergarten families.
