 READ ACROSS AMERICA - DR. SEUSS' BIRTHDAY

MARCH 2, 2017

During the week of Dr. Seuss’ birthday (Tuesday, February 28th - Friday, March 3rd) we will be having special events to celebrate.  As part of Read Across America we have invited special readers to come to school and enjoy spending time reading with our students and classrooms. Students also have the opportunity to read to other classrooms.  It’s great to see so many students and parents making reading important!    It will be a fun week for our kids as we celebrate reading!

 

“You can find magic wherever you look.  Sit back and relax, all you need is a book”
        – Dr. Seuss

SAFE AND WELCOMING SCHOOLS RESOLUTION

 

The School Board passed a resolution reinforcing their expectations for school and district staff to create and maintain safe and welcoming schools. The Board and Superintendent, Christy Perry have jointly written a letter for parents about the resolution and why it is important.  Below is a paragraph from the letter that explains the expectations put forth in the resolution:

 

“In basic terms, it [the resolution] says everyone is welcome in our schools regardless of race, gender identity, sexuality, immigration status, country of origin or other factors.  It also says that everyone is entitled to academic success regardless of their background or family circumstances and each student will be provided the necessary supports to ensure that success.

 

We would urge you to visit the website and read the resolution in its entirety.” Parents can download the letter and the Board’s resolution from the district website at: www.salemkeizer.org.

MAKE UP DAYS FOR SNOW CLOSURES

posted Feb 17, 2017, 1:45 PM by Candalaria Elementary   [ updated Feb 17, 2017, 2:47 PM ]

 

Due to inclement weather, Salem-Keizer students have missed four full school days, had one early release and one late start this school year.

 

Time at school is essential to student success. To make up for some lost instructional time, the district has decided to make changes to the school calendar.

 

Three school days have been added to the 2016-17 school calendar:

  • Thursday, March 23, 2017, will be a regular school day for all K-12 students and Parent-Teacher conferences will take place after school in the evening.

  • Thursday and Friday, June 15 and 16, 2017, will be regular school days for all K-12 students except graduating seniors. High schools will develop a revised schedule for second semester finals.

Dates of high school graduation ceremonies will not change
