Welcome Back, Dolphins!

Dear Dolphin Family,

It is with great pleasure that I get to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year! 

All of us here at Minter Creek Elementary have been diligently preparing for the return to school and we are looking forward to another awesome year. Our dedicated educators have been engaged in professional learning opportunities to further our knowledge and expertise. Our committed custodians have been meticulously cleaning and disinfecting our building. While we know this school year will be different than previous ones, it will not damper our spirits nor our dedication to provide a top-notch education to our students! We will have a wonderful year of learning, growth, and discovery. We are excited about the opportunities that are in front of us.

Students are scheduled to begin the 2020-2021 school year on September 8. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as required by the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, students will start the school year in a remote platform and come back to school for in-person learning as soon as possible using a dialed approach. 

Though it will look differently than in years past, families will still be able to meet the teacher. Our Meet the Teacher event will be held Tuesday, September 8th from 4:00 - 7:00 pm. More information will be coming, but essentially you will drive through, briefly meet your teacher(s) and pick up some materials. There will be additional opportunities to conference with your teacher(s) over the weeks, but this will give a fun way to start off the year.

Communication between home and school is critical, especially during a time when circumstances can change rapidly. Throughout the year, the school will provide information to families via text, email, and our school webpage, so please ensure your information is updated in the Parent Portal. Without updated information, you may not receive important information.

This school year will be a new journey for all of us, but please know that we are committed to keeping our students, staff, and families healthy and safe while we navigate through these uncharted waters together. 

We look forward to a great year with you and your child!


Todd Hering, Principal
