SKPS to reduce limited-in-person instruction and suspend athletic activities

SKPS to reduce limited-in-person instruction and suspend athletic activities

On Friday, Nov. 13, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced a statewide two-week freeze on activities, which will take effect on Wednesday, Nov. 18. After receiving additional guidance from the Oregon Department of Education, we have made the difficult decision to reduce our limited in-person instruction and suspend all athletic activities across the district.  

Key points to know:  

  • Effective Monday, Nov. 16, all extracurricular workouts, and activities are paused.  
  • If your school has plans for any supply distribution or limited in-person instruction next week, most will continue as scheduled until Wednesday. Your school will be communicating with you directly about those plans.  
  • Grab-n-go meals will continue to be available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. An up-to-date list of distribution sites is always available on our district website. 
  • School offices will be closed to the public. Schools can still be reached Monday – Friday by phone.  

These decisions do not come easy, especially as we know how our limited in-person instruction has supported our students through distance learning. We will continue to do our best to support students to ensure they can access their learning.  

We need to join as a community to slow the spread of this virus and do everything we can to support the health and safety of our SKPS family and our greater Salem-Keizer community.

SKPS reducirá la instrucción limitada en persona y suspenderá las actividades deportivas

En horas tempranas del viernes, 13 de noviembre, la gobernadora de Oregon, Kate Brown, anunció una suspensión de actividades por un período de dos semanas en todo el estado, a partir del miércoles 18 de noviembre. Después de recibir las pautas adicionales por parte del Departamento de Educación de Oregon, hemos tomado la difícil decisión de reducir nuestra instrucción limitada en persona y suspender todas las actividades deportivas en todo el distrito.

Puntos clave a saber: 

  • A partir del lunes 16 de noviembre, todos los entrenamientos y actividades extracurriculares estarán en pausa.
  • Si su escuela tiene planes para la distribución de suministros o instrucción limitada en persona la próxima semana, la mayoría continuará según lo programado hasta el miércoles. Su escuela le comunicará directamente acerca de esos planes.
  • Los alimentos para llevar seguirán disponibles de lunes a viernes de 11 a.m. a 1 p.m. Una lista actualizada de los sitios de distribución siempre está disponible en nuestra página web del distrito.
  • Las oficinas de la escuela estarán cerradas al público. Aún se puede contactar a las escuelas de lunes a viernes por teléfono.

Estas decisiones no son fáciles, especialmente porque sabemos cómo nuestra limitada instrucción en persona ha apoyado a nuestros estudiantes a través del aprendizaje a distancia. Continuaremos haciendo nuestro mejor esfuerzo para apoyar a los estudiantes para asegurar que pueden acceder a su aprendizaje.

Necesitamos unirnos como comunidad para frenar la propagación de este virus y hacer todo lo posible para apoyar la salud y seguridad de nuestra familia SKPS y nuestra gran comunidad de Salem-Keizer.

Inclement Weather Notifications – How SKPS Communicates About School Closures And Delays

As we begin to see cooler temperature throughout our community, it’s important to know how SKPS will communicate with you if there’s a school closure or delay. In the event of bad weather, district officials will make the decision by 5:15 a.m. that day to close all or selected schools or to delay the start of school.

School Closures and Delays

-Click Above for Full View-

If schools are closed or start times delayed, all students and staff will get a recorded message to the phone number on record with the district. The message will tell you about school cancellation, delay to start times or district closure. Make sure your contact information is up to date. Families who need to update their phone number should contact your school.

You can also visit our website at salemkeizer.org and click on the Emergency Closures & Delays tab at the top of the page. In addition, a message will be posted on the district’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts as soon as a decision is made to cancel school, delay school, or close the district.

If inclement weather is predicted, but there is no change to school schedules, that confirmation will be posted on social media channels; however, an automated phone call likely will not be made. For more details, see the Emergency Closures & Delays webpage.

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.”
