What is the morning classroom routine?
Teachers are expected to greet each child as he/she enters the classroom each morning in order to set up a welcoming and positive classroom environment for the day. Each child deserves to be greeted in the same manner and have the teacher's full attention and assistance to get settled in for a successful school day of learning. This is not an appropriate time to conference with the teacher.

How often should I check my child's backpack?
Ask your child to show you the contents of his/her backpack in order to check for flyers, newsletters, and work assignments. Fourth and fifth graders have daily assignment notebooks for you to check each day for assignments and their progress of work. This is also an excellent communication tool!
What is an SRO Police Officer Liaison?
Each campus is assigned a police officer who will periodically drop by the building and have lunch with the students and staff to establish relationships. They are available to assist with any situation that may arise during the school hours. Our SRO Police Officer Liaison for Wolf Creek is Leon Calhoun.
What are the school's disaster drill procedures?
Your child's safety is our primary concern. State law mandates periodic practice of fire and tornado drills. We also have procedures in place for a lock down, if necessary. When there is a lockdown, whether a drill or not, no one will be allowed into the building until the lockdown is cancelled.
