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.

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
