What is Happening in Triad?
The old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words", refers to the idea that a picture can tell a story. We have hundreds of stories to share about our classrooms, students, building activities and events. To help share our stories, we have constructed a photo slide show that will be continually updated. Come back often and take the time to view our story and proudly share with others. We have amazing schools, staff and students and hope these moments capture some additional stories you may not have heard about. [ Slide Show ]

Silver Creek Elementary Drop off/Pick up Procedures
Welcome back! We are very excited about the upcoming 2014-2015 school year at Silver Creek Elementary. Below, you will find a few reminders and procedural changes about dropping students off at the beginning of the school day, picking up students at dismissal time, and entering the building during school hours.
**Please notice new school day start and dismissal times.**
Student Drop Off
The doors of Silver Creek Elementary will open at 8:25 A.M. Do not drop students off before this time as there is no adult supervision. Latch-key services are available for Silver Creek Elementary students through the Triad School District’s Beyond the Bell program. For more information call 667-8851 Ext. 5305.
Between 8:25 and 8:45 A.M., students are welcome to come into the building and either go to their classroom or go to the cafeteria to eat breakfast. Students who are eating breakfast should report directly to the cafeteria and should not go to their classrooms first.
ALL students must be dropped off at the front entrance near the main office. When dropping off students in the circle drive, please pull past the main front door entrance to the row of cones. All vehicles between the two sets of cones will unload. This process allows several vehicles to unload at one time and makes the dropping off process more efficient. There will be an adult in the parking lot to assist with this process and to assist any students crossing the circle drive to get into the building. Please remember to only cross at the designated cross walks.
In an attempt to make the morning drop off process more efficient and far safer, we need all parents to practice the following rules:
Parents will be allowed to walk students to the classroom on Wednesday, August 20th – Friday, August 22nd. For safety and security purposes, beginning Monday, August 25th, parents will not be allowed to enter the academic wings or cafeteria during morning drop-off. There will be school personnel to assist your child in walking to the classroom should they need assistance.
