Salk Elementary School - Vol. One 2021-2022


Greetings Families,

My name is Adam Fichter and I am proud to be the new Principal at Jonas Salk Elementary. I am so excited to have everyone return to the NEST! I can't wait to meet the students, parents/guardians, and the whole community who comes together to make Salk Elementary such a great place to be. As families have made it through some difficult times, we are anxious to have school return back to normal for everyone. The focus of the year will be on excelling academically, growing in character and emotional development, and having some fun in the process!

Lets get ready to Soar into the 2021-2022 school year Seahawks!

Please review with your child the bus rules found on the Transportation Department’s website.
