School hours are 7:50-2:20. Children can be dropped off at 7:30 am and will go to the cafeteria. Children are not to be dropped off before 7:30 am as there is no supervision.
Please park in either of the parking lots and walk to the front of the school to pick up your child when his/her class walks by. Be sure the teacher sees you taking your child from the line. Remember: DO NOT PARK along the curb. This is a bus zone and drop-off zone only.
If you pick up your child during the school day, you must come into the school office and sign him/her out. We ask that you not go to the classroom to get your child. The secretaries will either notify the teacher, who will send your child to the office, or you will be given a slip letting the appropriate adult know that you have checked your child out of school. We know that these procedures are sometimes inconvenient, but the safety of your child is important to us. Please allow additional time when picking up your child.
Changes in Dismissal:
If your child is going home on a different bus or with a different person, you MUST send a note with the child in the morning. The child is to take the note to the secretaries who will notify the classroom teacher and bus driver of changes.
We invite you to come to school to visit and volunteer. When you arrive, please enter the front doors. We keep all other doors locked for safety reasons. Our wonderful secretaries will be in the office to greet you and have you sign in each time you work or visit inside the school. Be sure to wear a volunteer or visitor name badge when you are visiting the school.
Boeckman Creek works best when everyone works together. If you are able to volunteer, we have many ways for you to help. Your classroom teacher may have particular tasks to do, such as copying materials and preparing supplies. You may also have a particular skill that would help, such as typing or art. Please talk to your teacher about ways you can help in and out of the classroom.
Of course getting involved with the PTA is another way for you to help support our school. We invite you to assist at school events, such as Bingo Night, and the Bobcat Blast. We welcome and encourage you to attend the monthly PTA meetings on the second Wednesday of each month alternating between morning and evening times in the staff lunchroom. Check calendar for dates and times.

Since we have a debit system, with each child having their own account, you can send any amount and have it divided among your children as you instruct. When sending lunch money to school, please seal it in an envelope and write your child’s first and last name and ID # on the front. Another option is to manage your child’s lunch balance online with K12 Payment Center. All info on the district lunch page. If you would like information about free and reduced meals, please talk to one of the secretaries for a form or the Free/Reduced Lunch Application online.

Everyone loves birthday celebrations. If you desire, your child may bring something for the class on his/her special day (please check with your child’s teacher- some grades have adopted a ‘no treats’ birthday policy). We cannot have homemade treats. Instead of store-purchased treats, your child may prefer to bring a special book to give to the class. This book would become a part of the classroom library and include your child’s name and date on the inside cover. Please notify the classroom teacher if you wish to celebrate your child’s birthday at school so that they can help make the day special. If your child has a summer birthday, the class can celebrate at the end of the year or have a “half-birthday” during the year.
Your child will have two class parties, one to celebrate Fall and the other on Valentine’s Day, February 14. Room parents work together with the classroom teacher to coordinate these parties. Please be aware that there may be children who have food allergies in the classroom. Therefore, talk to the teacher before sending treats or offering food to the children in the classroom.
Starting in September 2004 the West Linn – Wilsonville SD adopted a latex free policy in all of the school buildings. This means parents and students are no longer allowed to bring any latex balloons to the school at any time. The change in this policy reflects the increasing number of people with severe latex allergies, some even life threatening. Mylar balloons are acceptable.
There are two restrooms to use for adults. They are located in the far hall corridor near the teacher’s lounge and work room.
The school will send out notifications via email for their enrichment classes. They are typically weekly classes for 6-8 weeks in duration and are taught after school with a teacher/staff or parent. Classes range from art, dancing and theater to legos, language and chess. The classes vary per segment.
There are several ways you can contact us when you have questions. Our secretaries, Delea Horch and Sandi Laschober, will assist you by answering your general school question or by directing you to the person who can answer your question.
Our office phone number is 503-673-7750. If you have any questions about your child’s academic progress, please call and ask for your child’s teacher. Zach Deets, our school counselor, is also available to talk with you concerning any counseling concerns. If you need help with Spanish translation, please ask for Travis Flynn our English as a Second Language teacher. If possible, making an appointment is the best way to have time to talk one-on-one with your child’s teacher.
