Bullying / Cyber-bullying
Creekside High School takes bullying very seriously. We teach students the values of integrity, mutual respect, personal and social responsibility, and compassion and expect demonstrations of those values on and off campus. Furthermore, every student has a right to come to a school in a hostile free environment.
Students who feel they are subject to bullying are encouraged come speak to a counselor, administrator, teacher or any adult on campus. The school is equipped to help, but needs to know in order to address issues that arise.
Here are some valuable resources for students, parents, and teachers:
Community Based English Tutoring
Community Based English Tutoring is a free tutorial training program offered to parents of school-age children throughout the Irvine Unified School District. The program’s goal is to empower parents with the language skills and strategies necessary for them to become active participants in their children’s education. Experienced, certificated teachers instruct the classes.
IUSD Language Minority Programs Workshop
Every year IUSD Language Minority Programs hosts a free series of informational meetings for parents or guardians of students within the Irvine Unified School District. We invite you to attend the next informative meeting of the five part series. IUSD counselors will discuss the following IUSD Programs, Discipline, School Activities, Graduation Requirements, College & University Admission Requirements.
Cold and Flu Season is Upon Us
How can I help my child stay healthy during the cold/flu season?
Influenza activity is increasing in Orange County. It is not too late to get vaccinated against influenza. Influenza vaccine is available throughout the County. For publicly funded vaccine clinics, see www.ochealthinfo.com/flu. For retail locations, see the Flu Vaccine Finder at www.flu.gov. Persons with influenza-like illness should stay home from work or school until their fever has resolved for at least 24 hours. Don't forget to cover your cough and wash your hands!
One of the target areas for CHS this year is 1st period tardies. Please remember school starts at 8:20 every day . We have staff here as early as 7:30 each morning, and encourage students to arrive 10-15 minutes before the bell.

Who to Call @ Creekside
Thanks to a grant from the Whole Kids Foundation and the City of Irvine Afterschool Leadership Program under the leadership of Alvia, and the IUSD grounds department (thanks Andy!), what was once an idea to create a school learning garden to teach students about nutrition, sustainable farming practices, and the science behind gardening has become a reality. We are starting our first planting with a salsa garden. Our goal is to expand the garden to include fruit trees, flowers, and to add fencing around the plots to prevent our friendly rabbit population from helping themselves.
Important Contact Information
Below is a link of important phone numbers for Creekside High School. As questions come up regarding your student's education, please contact the appropriate person on the list, so that we can be of assistance.
Parent Guide to Enhance Student Success
In order to serve you better, we are asking all parents and guardians to update their student’s emergency
telephone contact information if this changes anytime during the year after the registration process. The web-based information portal for IUSD parents, MyIUSD.org, provides secure and private access to your student’s emergency contact information, as well as other information such as grades, progress reports and daily attendance.
Pertussis Vaccine Requirement
A new California law requires students entering grades seven through 12 to get immunized with a booster shot for pertussis, commonly referred to as “whooping cough.”
In response to a national epidemic, the state passed Assembly Bill 354 back in 2010, mandating that children 10 years and older show proof that they’ve recently received a pertussis vaccination called “Tdap,” which includes boosters for tetanus and diphtheria. Adults are also advised to get the shot if they haven’t already – particularly if they’re around infants.
