    Technology/Curriculum Packet Pick-Up:

    The Cypress Creek Elementary iPad or curriculum packet pick up from our school takes place tomorrow, Friday, from 7 am to 10 am and from 3 pm to 6 pm.

    Please note: We have a limited number of iPads to check-out on loan to students. One per family, First come, First Served.​

    • The iPads are for students that don't have any other technology device at home
    • The educational apps for the iPads are already pre-loaded in the self-service KIOSK, your child won't be able to load or purchase any other apps. 
    • The iPads are managed by Volusia County Schools and their location is tracked.
    • In order for the iPads to work you must have internet access at home. 

    If you don't already have internet access, then we suggest you pick up a curriculum packet for your child(ren). 


    If you wish to check-out an iPad on loan for your child, you will need to complete the check-out form when you arrive which requires the following information:

    • Student's Name
    • Alpha Id (a list will be available at pick-up)
    • Parent's Name
    • Driver License # or ID #
    • Home Address
    • Contact Phone #
    • Contact e-mail
    • Parent Signature

    Once we return to school you will need to return the iPad along with the charging cable and power cube.  If the iPad is damaged or not returned you will be charged for the repairs or replacement of the iPad which is $360.

     
    Please follow the directions below to enter and exit campus to check-out an iPad or pick up the curriculum packet(s) for your child(ren).​ If you are able to complete the online instruction, we are recommending tthat you do so.

     
    We ask that you enter campus through the parent loop and pull in front of the main building and remain in your car. There will be district personnel present to complete the check out and distribution process from your vehicle.

     
    If you are only picking up curriculum packets you may slowly exit once you have received them.

     
    If you are checking out an iPad you must complete the check-out form which will be collected by a staff member and you will then receive the iPad, charging cable, and power cube.

     
    Please be patient as this process may take a little while to work through!  We are all in this together!

     
    We look forward to seeing some of you tomorrow!

    School Choice Applications

    School Choice Applications are used to request a school other than the zoned school. Applications open March 2nd and close May 29th.

    1. A separate application must be completed for each student.
    2. The school district will notify each family by email or letter of the School Choice Application Committee's decision.
    3. The Volusia County School District cannot guarantee placement at a specific school due to factors such as over-crowding, program placement, class size, etc.
    4. Transportation to and from school is the responsibility of the family.
    5. In order to remain in your School Choice Placement, your student must:
    • Comply with the Student Code of Conduct
    • Maintain satisfactory academic performance
    • Maintain satisfactory school attendance ​

    3 Methods to Complete a School Choice Application:

    Choose one type of application when completing your request to switch from the student's zoned school. Only one application will be evaluated per student per year. All three applications are evaluated by the district in the same manner. Duplicate applications will be returned or denied by the district.

    You may complete the application by one of the three following:

    1. Parent Portal Account: Only Currently Enrolled VCS Students
      • Sign into your VCS Parent Portal account and complete the application.
    2. Online Form: Current or New to VCS Students
    3. Paper Application: Current or New to VCS Students
      • Paper applications can be completed at any Volusia County School. The school will forward the application to the Student Choice Office using the county mail service. This application may be delayed due to the physical delivery of the form to the School Choice Office.
