LOWELL — Due to the extreme wind chills that will continue through Tuesday morning, Tri-Creek canceled school and we will be utilizing an eLearning day. All morning practices, activities and Adventure Club were also cancelled.

Students have three days to complete any assignments from the eLearning day. If you require technical assistance with accessing your child’s materials please contact the help desk by calling 219-750-1315 and following the prompts. The help desk will be available until midnight. More information on eLearning Days can be found at tricreek.k12.in.us/technology/elearningday.cfm.
