up their last few days of school and everyone is eagerly
waiting for the summer to officially begin. I want to say
how much I have enjoyed watching your children learn,
discover, and grow over the year. They are truly a great
group of students and I am going to miss each and every
one of them! My seven years at Canyon Creek have
passed by so quickly but all great things must come to an
end. I’m grateful for all the experiences and positive relationships I have had an opportunity to develop over the
years. I will always remember my time at Canyon Creek!
As you and your family look forward to vacations, time
with relatives, or just relaxing in the backyard, I wish you
a healthy and restful summer!

Parking Lot Reminders
As we all continue to learn the new drop-off process, here are a few key
things to keep in mind before and after school:
-Please do not exit your vehicle in the “kiss & go” lane
-Pull all the way forward for others to drop-off passengers
-Please do not cross the solid white line. There are two lanes of traffic, if
you are in the drop-off only lane, please be patient and wait until the
traffic continues moving.
-When picking your child up in the afternoon, please know the parking
lot fills up quickly. Cars should only be parked in designated spots.
Vehicles can’t be left unattended in the fire lane, as this is a traffic violation.
-You can drive around the parking lot in a loop so you may stop momentarily for your child to get into your vehicle.
-Please remember to follow all traffic regulations by keeping crosswalks
and driveways clear and leaving 8-10 feet from corner street curbs in
