Climate Survey

It is school survey time and we need your opinion to make our school even better! Our goal is that 100% of our faculty and staff, 20% of our parents (approximately 600) and 40% of our students (approximately 1200) will complete the survey between April 8th- May 5th! The results of the survey are used for development of the School Improvement Plan each year. The information helps guide many decisions that impact your daily life at Creek. Here is the link to the directions and the survey:

SAC Elections
SAC Elections

It is almost time for SAC elections for next year. If you are interested in participating in SAC, please reach out to Mrs. Murray at by April 14th so that we can get your name on the ballet. Elections will take place between April 17-April 24. There will be an election box in the main office that parents and community members can access to vote. There will also be an election box in the media center for students, faculty, and staff to vote. Anyone can come to the April 22nd SAC meeting at 5pm in the media center to see what it is all about and to vote.

Here is the key information you need about elections:


The principal, following input from the existing School Advisory Council, will establish the size and membership make-up of the SAC team as follows:

  • The principal shall serve on the School Advisory Council as an appointed member.
  • At least fifty-one percent (51%) of the School Advisory Council shall be parents and community representatives not employed by the school district.
  • Each team must include at least one member from the school's support personnel.
  • School Advisory Councils in high schools shall include students.  
  • The principal, following input from the existing School Advisory Council, may appoint Business and Community stakeholders.
  • Membership of the School Advisory Council will reflect the ethnic, racial, and economic community served by the school.

At Spruce Creek High School, our policy is to allow SAC to contain as many parents, students and community members as are interested in serving, therefore any parent, student or community member who reaches out with interest will be elected in to serve. We actively reach out to parents and students from underrepresented groups throughout the year. For teachers, we typically can allow anyone who wants to be a voting member to serve because we have enough parents, students, and community members to balance out the 51%, but we encourage departments to discuss it and have someone volunteer to participate on their behalf. For the spring election, we vote in those who know that they want to participate the next year. At any point in the school year if additional members want to join and become voting members, we vote them in and the chair submits a new roster to the district. We allow anyone to attend any meeting as a nonvoting member at any time. 


Why Should You Join Us?

Participating in SAC is a great way to see how your school works and participate in some of the decisions that will directly affect student achievement. It is a great way to have your voice heard and help to choose the path of your school. In addition, for school employees, it can be a resource that helps you to see the school as a whole instead of just focusing on your individual situation. For parents, it can be helpful to see the inner workings of a school that you have a vested interest in. For students, it can be an awesome resume and application booster. For community members, you can have a hand in helping to make your community school even better, which makes our community better and improves the local economy! So join us today! For more information about SAC, visit

Laptop and Textbook Return

Laptops with chargers and textbooks must be returned in person to an adult in the media center where they will be scanned in immediately and taken off your record or you will be charged for them. All laptops must be returned with the charger or you will receive a $25 obligation. DO NOT leave materials in classrooms, lockers, or anywhere else on campus to avoid costly obligations. Check what TEXTBOOKS you owe by visiting vPortal and clicking on the app for DESTINY.


Seniors who have outstanding obligations will be unable to get their diploma at graduation. Be sure to come speak to us about issues early! When you return your laptops, all stickers must be removed, and you must wipe down the device before returning it with the charger. Lost chargers cost $25.

Monday, April 29th 8:00-3:45 (Last Day Before Testing)

This day is available for you to return anything you do not need through the end of the year. Anything you do not return this day must be HELD until we are able to be open. Remember, the media center is very involved in spring testing.

May 6th-10th 8:00-3:45 (Senior Return Days)

Seniors return all laptops and books in the back hallway of the media center when the front is closed due to testing. This will only be set up these days.

You can return any materials you still have before or after the Senior Breakfast and Legacy Walk. This is your last chance to turn in materials in time to have your diploma at graduation.


If your diploma is held after graduation due to obligations, you can visit school to clear up obligations and return materials at any point when you come to pick up your diploma.  

9th-11th Grade Students

Whenever the media center is open, we are available for check-outs and returns of laptops all year. All laptops must be turned in for the summer UNLESS you have a summer school class, summer DSC class, or other academic reason you need to keep it. You will receive the same device back, so you do not need to remove stickers unless you are not returning to our school next year. We will need you to put your name on the top of the device with painters’ tape that we will provide. You will need to wipe down the device and return the charger. When cleaning your device, never spray the laptop directly. Spray a clean cloth and use it to wipe it down. The media center will have cleaning supplies for you.


If you are registered for summer school and need a laptop, you MUST come to the media center to renew your device but know that you will need to turn in your device at the beginning of the school year for reimaging.

Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year, Bethany McClelland! The work that Ms. McClelland does with our modified ESE students is inspiring. She is able to help make them independent young adults who are ready to work and live the lives that they deserve. The families of her students are the biggest testament to the impact she has. She is certainly changing lives with her students. Ms. McClelland organizes and promotes various inclusion activities on our campus to ensure that not just her students, but all students with varying exceptionalities, feel accepted and connected on our campus. We are lucky to have Ms. McClelland represent us as our Teacher of the Year!
