Salk Seahawk Scoop
Week of September 13, 2021
Welcome Back Seahawks!
What an exciting start to the 2021-22 school year at Salk Elementary!
The first week of school has come and gone and we had two excellent "Meet the Teacher" nights. I was filled with joy and pride to see so many families and students filling the hallways and classrooms to meet the wonderful Salk staff. The 6th grade breakfast was a success and the 6th graders are ready to be the leaders of the school. All Salk students participated in our PBIS Training Day as they learned behavior expectations for around the school.
Salk Elementary's reputation as having dedicated parents/guardians, amazing teachers/staff, and a wonderful student body have been completely true and well deserved. The sense of community, teamwork, and togetherness were on full display during this week. A big thank you to everyone for helping to make Salk a special place to be a part of and for making my first week at Salk full of memories I will never forget!
This is just the beginning....our Seahawks are already Soaring!

FIND YOUR CHILD’S BUS STOP ONLINE
Bus stop information will be available online for the 2021–2022 school year starting August 30. You can access your child’s bus stop information by visiting www.fraser.k12.mi.us. Click on the "Bus Stops" link and enter your address to retrieve your child’s bus stop information.
It is very important to check your child’s bus stop, as routes have been modified for the 2021–2022 school year.
Students will be assigned a route number in lieu of a bus number. The route number is located on the left side of the entry door. To ensure transportation, all students must be at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time. Please review with your child the bus rules found on the Transportation Department’s website.
Health, Safety, & COVID-19 Communication
We hope our Sak families are staying healthy. Please continue to reach out to keep us updated about your family's health and notify the office if someone in your household tests positive for Covid-19 or if you find out that your child has been exposed to someone who has tested positive. This information will help mitigate the spread and keep our Salk community healthy.
FPS Mask Policies
Masks are optional for all staff, students and visitors on campus. We will have masks available in all of our buildings for anyone who needs one. Fraser Public Schools encourages everyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear a face covering. Facial coverings are a safe, and proven strategy to prevent secondary transmission of this aggressive Delta variant in schools. Masks are primarily intended to reduce the emission of virus-laden droplets. They also help reduce inhalation of these droplets by the wearer. We ask everyone to respect each individual’s choice whether or not to wear a mask.
Masks must be worn on Fraser Public School buses. The CDC requires masks to be worn on school buses.
Free Breakfasts & Lunches Continue
The State of Michigan will continue to provide a free breakfast and lunch for all student who wants them throughout the 2021-2022 school year. We will provide monthly calendars with scheduled meals as we have in the past, but families do not need to pre-order. Although note required, we do ask. that families complete the Lunch Application at www.LunchApp.com. By doing so you help ensure the school receives additional funding.
