Cure the Summer Slide with Summer Reading

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Thu, 07/09/2020 - 10:35

It's a well-documented fact that kids slide backward in their learning over the summer. In order for kids to retain the skills and knowledge that they have acquired during the school year, they must keep using their brains. There is no better way for kids to do that than to read. Also, since they are probably more cooped up in the house this year than ever before, with so many vacation destinations closed, reading is a great alternative to constant video games and cell phones. 

Check out these resources to help you find fun, entertaining books for your kids to read this summer.

YEARBOOKS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Submitted by neely.mcewan on Sun, 06/21/2020 - 19:20

On Monday, June 22nd, from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM, we will be doing two things: checking in items that need to be returned to the school (e.g. Chromebooks, instruments, choir uniforms, textbooks, library books, etc.) and handing out yearbooks (if purchased). This will be done in a drive-thru fashion in two of our parking lots (see attached map), alphabetically by last name.

LAST NAMES A-K
If your last name begins with A-K, you will pull into the front parent pick-up/drop-off and proceed along the curb to the canopies (the yellow circle on the map). First you will drop off items that need to be returned. Staff will be available to label items, if needed. Then you will pick up your yearbook, if purchased, and we will send you on your way with a treat.

ONLY ONE LANE will be accommodated against the right curb. Please do not cut through the parking lot.

LAST NAMES L-Z
If your last name begins with L-Z, you will pull into the North parking lot (by the tennis courts), and proceed along the curb to the canopies (the yellow circle on the map). First you will drop off items that need to be returned. Staff will be available to label items, if needed. Then you will pick up your yearbook, if purchased, and we will send you on your way with a treat.

ONLY ONE LANE will be accommodated against the left curb. Please do not cut through

FAQ

Are there still yearbooks available?
YES! At this point, we are getting distribution ready, so you may purchase a yearbook the day of distribution by parking in the front parent pick-up/drop-off lot and walking into the main office.

I'll be out of town on the 22nd, so when can I get my yearbook and return my Chromebook and other items?
After the 22nd, yearbooks will be available for pickup in the front office during our summer office hours (see below). We appreciate you returning any other school items as soon as you are able so that we can inventory and get ready for next school year!

How do I pay my fees?
You can go to myschoolfees.com to pay your fees. Our financial office will be closed for a few weeks, but you can pay fees in person on distribution day, as well.

Summer Office Hours
During the summer, the school and office are open Mon-Thur from 9-2. The financial office will be closed through the beginning of July, but will be open on June 22nd during distribution. The school is closed on Fridays.

We hope you are having a great summer, Spartans!

******ONLINE REGISTRATION (OLR) WILL OPEN DISTRICT-WIDE ON JULY 13 ******

Submitted by neely.mcewan on Mon, 06/15/2020 - 16:29

All parents will need to create a parent portal and complete the Online Registration process to complete their student(s)
enrollment at Salem Jr High School.

If your student is already enrolled at Salem Jr High School, you will complete the annual update process of verifying information, electronically signing documents, etc. If your student is new to Nebo School District (did not attend or withdrew prior to the end of the 2019-2020 school year), you will need to complete the OLR for new students, which will include uploading your student's birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residency documentation. The "secondary education" link below will walk you through the process.

Once the above is complete, you will need to email your student's course request (found below by grade) to Mrs. McEwan (neely.mcewan@nebo.edu).
