New Students: If you are a new student here at Salem Jr. or you haven't ever checked out a Chromebook, please stop by Mrs. Teuscher’s room #104 and get a permission slip. Then bring the signed permission slip back to Mrs. Teuscher and she'll get you taken care of. We highly encourage you purchase the Insurance for the Chromebook for $30.00. If you do not buy the insurance, you are liable for any and all damage to your Chromebook. You can pay Mrs. Cook in the finance office with cash, check or credit card.

Changes to Quarantine: There have been some changes made to our procedures dealing with COVID cases.  In the past, when a student tested positive and was at school during their contagious time, we had to quarantine all students that were in close contact with that person. Now, as long as all students wear their masks, we will not have to quarantine those that have been exposed at school.
