Tabitha’s Way Canned Food Drive: Monday, October 19 - Friday, October 23 we will be having a canned food drive for Tabitha’s Way.  Our school’s focus is canned corn and chicken broth, however any canned food item is welcome!  Our math classes will be having a friendly competition for the most cans donated.

Changing to Remote or At-School Learning: As we approach the end of first term (October 29), parents wanting to change their child’s learning option for second term from Remote Learning to At-School Learning, or vice versa, can do so by submitting their decision in this link between October 5 and October 20.  If parents do not wish to change their student’s learning option at this time, they do not need to submit a decision. Once the second term begins on November 2, parents will need to stay with their decision until the term ends on January 14. At that time, parents will have another opportunity to make a change. Please contact your school if you have any questions.

Student Quarantine Update:There have been some much needed improvements made to the quarantining policy for COVID-19.  Please read through the UPDATE to see all of the details. It is great to finally reward students for wearing their masks.

Halloween Dress-up: Students are allowed to dress up for halloween on Thursday, October 29, 2020. Please remember the following things: To help us keep our school safe, students need to be recognizable. Students are not allowed to wear face or body paint and will be asked to wash it off before going to class if they have face or body paint. Make-up should also not interfere with students being recognizable while wearing masks. The only masks that students are allowed are the COVID masks that they have been wearing that are school approved and appropriate. We ask that you do not allow your students to wear costumes that distract from learning in classrooms (big blow-up costumes or other costume accessories that will be distracting). Please make sure the costumes follow the district dress code as well as the safe school guidelines to avoid costumes that contain weapons or facsimiles of weapons. Our Salem Spartans have traditionally made Halloween a fun celebration and it’s one we look forward to!
