Back to School Letter from CCE Administration

August 2017


Dear Cedar Creek Families,

Greetings! We hope you are having an amazing summer relaxing with family and friends! We are excited to hear about your summer adventures and looking forward to a great year of learning with all of our Super Cyclones!

On Friday, August 11th by 12:00 p.m. teacher assignments will be posted in the Power School Parent Portal.

Are you an incoming Kindergarten family or a family new to the Cedar Creek community? If so, please plan to attend a New Family Orientation on Monday, August 14th from 3:30-4:00 p.m. This informative session will give you the opportunity to meet some of the Cedar Creek staff, learn about school procedures and programming, and how to get involved with PTA.  Kindergartners and their parents are invited to a get-to-know-you play date on Sunday, August 13th on the Cedar Creek playground at 6:00 p.m.

We hope all families will plan to attend Meet Your Teacher Monday, August 14th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. This event will give you the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and drop off school supplies in the classroom. In the gym, informational tables will be arranged to help you and your family plan for the upcoming school year. Nutrition Services representatives will be available to assist with making deposits into your child’s lunch account. The Cedar Creek PTA will be selling PTA memberships and school spirit wear.

The first day of school, Wednesday, August 16th (NOT a late start), is only a few short weeks away! Remember this year we transition to an early school and our daily attendance hours have changed!  Students should arrive between 8:05 and 8:20 a.m. Schools hours are 8:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. All visitors to the building must enter through the main entrance. Visitors should report to our building’s office and check in. Late Start Wednesdays (excluding the first day of school and the October early release day) are scheduled for each Wednesday during the school year. Each Wednesday morning, school will begin at 9:20 and conclude at 3:20 p.m. Students should arrive between 9:05 and 9:20 a.m. Summit Rise, a component of Before and After School Services, is available free-of-charge to families in need of child care on late start Wednesdays at each school site. At Cedar Creek the program begins at 7:50 a.m. If you would like to enroll, please contact the office of Before and After School Services at 986-3440 or visit their website at

This is a milestone year for Cedar Creek as we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary!  Please plan to join us at our Back to School Picnic on Friday, September 22nd from 5:30-8:30 p.m. as we celebrate 20 years of learning and memories!

If you wish to bring or pick up your child at school during arrival or dismissal, please use the east entrance and loop around the lot.  Please make sure that your child, your child’s teacher and our office are aware of transportation changes well before dismissal.

Please feel free to call the school office if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing everyone and gearing up for another great year! Enjoy the rest of your summer!



Mrs. Jenifer Opie, Principal            Mrs. Melissa Hunter, Assistant Principal

Through InfoSnap online software, process is streamlined for families and school employees

Lee’s Summit R-7 families may begin online registration for the 2017-18 school year on July 6. The school district transitioned to online registration in summer 2016. The online procedures replaced paper enrollment in 2016 and are designed to make it easier for families to register and prepare for the school year.

Families may use their 2016-17 usernames and passwords. Families new to the school district are asked to contact their child’s school for enrollment and registration.  The Cedar Creek school office will be open starting Tuesday, July 25th.

In addition to the time-saving advantages, online registration improves the accuracy of data since parents will enter their children’s information directly into the program. The previous enrollment and registration process required parents to submit paper copies with school staff members entering data from these forms into the database. For convenience sake, families also have the opportunity to pay any school fees online.

Birth certificates (for new students only), proof of residency and immunization records are uploaded by families using the online program. More information about residency and other requirements for enrollment are available on the Lee’s Summit R-7 website at
