[UPDATED] SKPS School Year Extended By One Day Due to Inclement Weather Make-Up

***Story has been updated to reflect the removal of Waldo Middle School from the exceptions list, which NOW ONLY includes Judson, North Salem and McNary.

Because of those inclement weather-related school closures, all Salem-Keizer Public Schools, with the exception of three secondary schools scheduled for major construction, will add one day to the 2018-19 school calendar. The updated calendar does not apply to Judson, North Salem or McNary – those schools remain on the original calendar so major construction will not be delayed.

*Please note that should any day be missed moving forward, SKPS will revisit the calendar to ensure compliance with state standards.*

Details On 2018-19 School Calendar Changes:

  • High School Finals – FORMERLY June 10-12, NOW June 11-13
  • Elementary Last Day – FORMERLY June 11, NOW June 12
  • Elementary Grading Days – FORMERLY June 12-13, NOW June 13-14
  • Secondary Last Day – FORMERLY June 12, NOW June 13
  • Middle School Early Release – FORMERLY June 12, NOW June 13
