Free Summer Meals Available Throughout the Community for Children and Teens Ages 1-18

Parents and guardians who utilized the Summer EBT for Children program last year should have recently received a letter from the Oregon Department of Human Services, outlining upcoming changes. Oregon did not receive funds to offer this program again in summer 2019, which means households will not receive these additional benefits this summer.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools is proud to partner with our local agencies to provide free meals for children and teens aged 1-18 throughout our community all summer long.

Available for breakfast and lunch, children receive free meals at 11 of our school sites as well as the KROC center and FACES Family Daycare and Literacy and Resource Center.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools Recognizes Students for Turnaround Achievements 2019

Middle and High School Students Receive Awards for Positive Change Toward Excellence

Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) recognized 20 students from across the district and community in the 25th Annual Turnaround Achievement Awards On Tuesday, May 7. Sponsored by Don and Ann Lebold of Town and Country Lanes, the Turnaround Achievement Awards recognize middle- and high-school students who demonstrate effort, commitment and perseverance in the face of adversity. Recipients of this award have shown personal improvement in their academics, behavior or attitude and continue to implement these qualities in their daily lives.

Since 1994, these awards have inspired and motivated more than 400 students to achieve success in their personal, academic and professional lives.

“I’m finally a great example for my little brothers,” said West Salem High School recipient Eddie Perez. “I’m really proud of myself.”

Each day, educators and students work together to achieve our vision: all students graduate and are prepared for a successful life. In just a few short weeks, eight students honored at this year’s Turnaround Achievement Awards will cross the graduation stage at their school’s commencement ceremonies, marking the beginning of their bright
post-secondary futures.

“These awards are so meaningful and truly encompass the true grit, determination and perseverance our students hold,” said SKPS Superintendent Christy Perry. “Over the past 25 years, it has been a privilege to honor our students and the positive changes they have made.”

Acerca del sarampión:

  • El sarampión es una enfermedad viral contagiosa que puede propagarse por el aire cuando una persona enferma con sarampión tose o estornuda. También puede propagarse por contacto directo con la secreción nasal y saliva de alguien enfermo con sarampión.
  • Los síntomas del sarampión comienzan con fiebre, tos, secreción nasal y ojos rojos, seguidos de una erupción roja que generalmente comienza en la cabeza o la cara y se extiende al resto del cuerpo.
  • Las personas son contagiosas con el sarampión durante cuatro días antes de que aparezca la erupción y hasta cuatro días después de que aparezca la erupción.
    Después de que una persona susceptible está expuesta al sarampión, los síntomas generalmente se desarrollan en 1 a 2 semanas, pero pueden desarrollar hasta 3 semanas.
  • Las complicaciones del sarampión incluyen infección del oído, infección pulmonar y, en casos raros, inflamación del cerebro.
  • Aproximadamente 1 de cada 1000 niños mueren de sarampión.
  • Cualquier persona que no sea inmune al sarampión y crea que tiene síntomas de sarampión debe comunicarse con su proveedor de atención médico o atención de urgencia por teléfono para hacer arreglos para evitar exponer a otros al virus.
  • Las personas se consideran inmunes al sarampión si se cumple alguna de las siguientes condiciones:
    • Usted es un niño en edad preescolar con al menos 1 año de edad con una vacuna contra el sarampión (MMR – sarampión, paperas, rubéola).

    • Ha tenido la enfermedad del sarampión (diagnosticada por un proveedor de atención médica y confirmada con una prueba de laboratorio).
  • Ha tenido un análisis de sangre que demuestra que es inmune al sarampión.
  • Cualquier persona que tenga preguntas sobre la infección por sarampión o la vacuna contra el sarampión debe llamar a su proveedor médico generalo al departamento de salud de su condado local:
