Important Announcement

Elder Creek families,

This is Principal Brandon Frink with a short announcement. I hope everyone has a restful and fun break. With that said, I do have an important message to relay to you. As many of you have heard, all students must complete the form reporting their vaccination or exemption status by 11/30/21. Thanksgiving break is a great time to schedule your student’s vaccination, meet with a physician if filing an exemption and get your paperwork completed. SCUSD is also posting school site and community vaccination clinic opportunities on the website. 


COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic
Offered at Elder Creek Elementary

SCUSD is hosting a COVID-19 vaccine & flu shot clinic on:

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Informational Zoom Meeting
Monday, August 30th @ 6 pm




Good Evening parents and guardians, this is Principal Frink at Elder Creek with a few important announcements. I know many of you have questions about the start of school, safety measures, and general procedures for the site. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we are unable to hold any orientation events, except for our kinder students. To help answer as many of your questions as possible, we will be holding an informational Zoom meeting on Monday, Aug. 30th at 6 p.m. 



Chinese Immersion Program










Elder Creek’s Chinese Immersion program has open spaces for its 2021-22 kindergarten class. The program helps students attain language proficiency in both Chinese (Cantonese) and English, through a dual immersion model. Interested kinder parents can enroll by calling the school at 916-395-4555 or picking up a packet in front of the school. We will be enrolling new students on-site until Sept 10th.
