  • For the families that checked out chromebooks today, April 7th, please let us know immediately, preferably before Friday, if the chromebook is not functioning properly or is not charging properly. If you need to clean the chromebook at any time, do not spray onto the touchscreen- you may damage the screen. Get a moist cloth or paper towel and wipe down the screen and key board. If you still need to check out a chromebook, call me, Sara Sampels, and leave a voicemail to make an appointment. My number is 464-0328 and leave a voicemail. My email is Thank you!

  • Hello Cougar families and students! If you have wifi at home and need a chromebook device to manage your school work, please come check out a device tomorrow, Tuesday April 7th, at Crescent Elk. Please bring your own pen, gloves, and mask if possible. A parent or legal guardian must be present with the student in order to fill out and sign the equipment loan agreement form. There is a $350 replacement fee for any equipment that cannot be returned in June in working condition. Our device check out will be located in the bus loading zone in the 9th street parking lot. Remember, this parking lot is a one way parking lot and so please be sure to enter in the enter only direction to keep traffic flowing as smoothly as possible. Please be patient and we will try to get you through the curbside checkout as quickly as we can. Prepare to have a wait and we will hopefully get you through the line as quickly as we can. Be sure to check out our facebook page for this information as well.

  • Last night the Governor of California issued a stay at home order for all Californians. While we know that the current situation may cause some anxiety, please know that, we will continue to support our students, their families, and our community by continuing to provide alternative learning opportunities, guidance to families on local resources, programs to help our first responders, healthcare and essential services workers find childcare so that they can continue to serve our community, seamless food deliveries to youth from 0-18 years old, and other services that will be necessary in the upcoming days and weeks. Our goal is to keep our community safe and healthy. Thank you, in advance, for your help and patience, as we work through this unprecedented time.

Hello Crescent Elk Families,

It is my pleasure to be a part of the amazing Crescent Elk Middle School staff who are here serving your children.  We are happy to be here and we look forward to a year of exciting learning, curiosity, exploration, and growth.

We would love to have parents participate in any way they can as part of their child's educational experience.  Children are more successful if their parents work as a team with the school. Please get involved in any way you can.  We can work together to make this a great year for your student.

We will be sending out information through newsletters, phone calls on our auto-dialer system, notes home, Twitter, Facebook, Remind App, Instagram and our school website which is  It is important that we have your most recent home address and phone numbers on file in order to be sure you are kept informed.  Please make sure you let the office know if there are any changes and if you need anything to ensure your child's success.

We look forward to a wonderful school year!
