SCHOOL CALENDAR

Updates to 2020-21 academic calendar

In February, the Salem and Keizer communities were hit with severe inclement weather, causing widespread power outages across the district. With students and staff accessing classes through comprehensive distance learning, ongoing power outages impacted the ability for classes to continue, causing a week of school closures for our students.

Due to these school closures and the transition to hybrid learning for students in grades K-12, the district needed to make the following adjustments to the 2020-21 academic calendar:


Key changes for SKPS parents/guardians:

  • April 8 – School day for Elementary/ No student contact day for Secondary (EDGE program continues as previously scheduled)
  • April 9 – School day for Elementary/ No student contact day for Secondary (EDGE program continues as previously scheduled)
  • April 12 – Updated to full student support Monday, previously partial grading day for secondary
  • June 8 – Additional day added for SKPS high school graduation ceremonies
  • June 17 – Last day for students, previously June 15


The full updated academic calendar, including a breakdown of key dates for parents and guardians, is available on our district website.

GUIDELINES FOR FACE COVERING

As more students and staff return to in-person learning, face coverings are required when in a Salem-Keizer Public Schools building, with situational exceptions. They should be worn both indoors and outdoors, including during outdoor recess.


If a student needs a face covering, the school has them available for students.

FREE MEALS AVAILABLE

Meals available at all elementary, middle, and high schools

While your student is in school for hybrid learning, they will receive all their meals at school, at no cost. Hybrid learning students will be fed breakfast and lunch on site and will be offered a supper as they leave. Each student is allowed one breakfast, one lunch, and one supper per day so that means parents cannot pick up meals from the Grab-N-Go sites when their student is on site for hybrid learning. On the days your student is not on site for hybrid learning, meals are available at any of the Grab-N-Go sites throughout the community.


Grab-N-Go meal sites will be open at all elementary schools from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with all middle and high schools distribution from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.


Meals are free for any child or teen ages 1-18, and adults with special needs ages 18-21 who are enrolled in a Salem-Keizer Public Schools program.


Breakfast, lunch and supper

We are now including suppers in the Grab-N-Go meal bag. Each bag contains breakfast, lunch and supper. If you are picking up multiple bags, we recommend bringing your own bag to help carry the amount of food being distributed.
