Sloan Creek Intermediate School Principal Message

Hello Sloan Creek Families,


Can you believe it?! It is almost time to welcome your sweet kiddos back to school. We are busy preparing for the year and are so excited about all the opportunities your students will have to learn and grow as a student. As you begin preparing for a busy year, please take note of some important dates coming up.  


Walk the Creek will be held on Monday, August 8th for 5th Grade and Thursday, August 11th for 6th Grade. This is a very important time to learn about the changes for the upcoming school year, pick up school supplies (if ordered through EPI), walk you student's class schedule, and meet their teachers. 


Monday, August 8th: 5th Grade students with the last name starting with A-L will meet from 3:30 PM- 4:30 PM. 5th Grade students with the last name starting with M-Z will meet from 4:45 PM- 5:45 PM. 


Thursday, August 11th: 6th Grade students with the last name starting with A-L will meet from 3:30 PM- 4:30 PM. 5th Grade students with the last name starting with M-Z will meet from 4:45 PM- 5:45 PM. 


Parking is available on campus, however, shuttle service to SCIS will be available both days from Creekwood United Methodist Church (261 Country Club Rd, 75002) beginning at 3:15 pm. 


In addition to Walk the Creek, our wonderful PTO would like to invite our incoming 5th Grade students to Kool Off with Kona Ice on Friday, August 5th from 7:00 PM-8:00 PM at Celebration Park Pavilion (701 Angel Pkwy, Allen 75002).

We will be returning back to the National School Lunch Program. The elementary paid lunch price will be $4.00 ($4.75 premium meal). To qualify for free/reduced-priced lunch, households are encouraged to complete the 2022-2023 Meal Application found on the LISD Student Nutrition webpage.
