BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Our goal is to teach our students about the African American figures who have shaped our culture and to represent the diversity of our school district and society as a whole, because black history is American history.
FREE GRAB-N-GO MEALS
With a new year comes new changes, including a few meal distribution updates!
Starting January 4, 2021, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will be offering Grab-N-Go meals at 90 locations. Meals will be available for pick-up at the locations below from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. They 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.
Four previous locations are closed
Our Food Services team monitors daily usage at each of our locations. Occasionally, this means that some sites will close to consolidate with nearby locations. Also, we will no longer be distributing weekend meals; however, the inclusion of daily suppers will actually increase the amount of food distributed each week.

However, we are aware that weather can have an effect on our ability to connect. If that is the case, please make sure to contact the office. Students are to be excused from absences when technological issues arise due to weather.
SCHOOLMESSENGER - NOTIFICATIONS
At the start of each school year, information from student registration forms is input into the student information database.
SchoolMessenger, the system the district uses to send out phone notification to parents, receives updated information from this database once each day.
It is very important that parents keep their contact information current.
Be sure to let your school office know if you have a new address, email or phone number.
The parent or guardian marked as the primary contact in the student information system will receive automated communication.
Messages will also be sent to the student’s home phone number contained in the database, if different from the primary contact phone number.
WATCH US ON TV!
During this school year, FOX 12 has been coming into our school to interview staff and students to get a behind the scenes of our distance learning model. The series is called Keizer Strong and there are new segments aired every few weeks.
