Roberts and ECHS Weekly Newsletter

Week of February 15th - February 19th

A note from our Administration

Hello to our Salem Keizer Alternative Education Community-

We know you come to us from across the city, and the region- and that the snow and ice likely looked different depending on where you are today!

As a reminder, in these kinds of weather events, we are still providing our regularly scheduled online classes- students are still expected to log in, engage, and complete work, even if our buildings are closed!

Across the district we are expanding options for Limited In-Person Instruction. These opportunities are not replacing the lessons or content online, but do serve as an way for students to get support on their online classes in an in-person setting. Our schools are identifying students and contacting them directly, if you have any questions about this please call our offices.

While Mondays are reserved as Student Support Days without synchronous classes, it is important to know that our staff is off on Monday, February 15th in observance of President's Day. Our offices will remain open if you have questions, but teaching and support staff will not be working.

We are so grateful for your students, and your continued engagement and support through Distance Learning. Please check our websites for additional announcements, details and resources. You can also track your student's grades, schedules, and progress through Synergy ParentVue as we get further into Quarter 3, we want to see your student succeed in all their classes!

Thank you,

Brad Shreve, Lisa McIntyre, and Miranda Cryns

February is Black History Month

Black History Month is observed in February to recognize and celebrate the numerous contributions Black and African Americans have made and continue to make in the United States.

Here are some ways we are honoring Black History Month in Salem Keizer:

The Salem Keizer School Board adopted the Black History Month proclamation, honoring and celebrating black history month.

Superintendent Perry launched her Student Art Gallery with Black History as the central theme for this month's selections.

Later this month, McKay High School will be hosting a FREE Black History Month celebration – The Dream: A Celebration of Black History. This virtual event will feature a video presentation of student performances, re-enactments and history lessons highlighting black history. More details about this event will be shared in the coming weeks.

The week ahead:

Monday, February 15th: President's Day - Teaching and support staff are off work in observance of President's Day. Our offices will be staffed for phone calls or other needs.

Tuesday - Friday, February 16th - 19th: Follow your class schedule.

The times are the same as Q2, but your classes and teachers will have changed!

GED testing Wednesdays and Fridays @DTLC - Scheduled by staff

Limited In-Person Instruction Tuesdays - Fridays - Scheduled by advisors and staff
