Taking Care of Business Day

Taking Care of Business Day (TCB Day) will be held this year on Thursday, August 16th from 8AM to 8PM. TCB Day allows students and parents to get a head start on the school year by getting registration information in order, school photos, student IDs, pay sports fees, order yearbooks and students can get their class schedules.

Three sessions will be held on TCB Day: 8 to 11AM; 1-4PM; and 5-8PM. All grades may attend any of the three sessions to register. Students new to Salem-Keizer School District will report to the Guidance Office to register, then proceed to the other stations.

The North Athletic Boosters will be selling Viking-wear that day. AVID students can stop by the AVID station for a meet and greet with teachers and get information for the 18-19 school year. We have a lot planned so don’t miss out. Call 503-399-3241 if you have questions.

Message from our principal.

As we head into summer break, we want to say “thank you” to our community for approving the 2018 bond!

Because of the community’s support, our school will receive many improvements that will address overcrowding, prepare us to serve our growing enrollment, and improve school safety.

Construction is expected to start at North in summer 2019. When construction is complete, we’ll have 20 new classrooms, a new science lab, two additional career-technical education spaces, a new main gym, a new auxiliary gym, a satellite commons area and kitchen, an updated electronic badge access system and more!

We can expect that construction will take place during the 2019-20 school year. Our school design team will work with the district’s bond program management team to minimize disruption of the educational environment caused by construction. However, it’s important for parents, students and staff to be aware that school operations will be different during construction. In spite of the expected disruption, our staff’s commitment to student safety and success will be unchanged during construction.

We’ll share more information about construction at North in the next few months. Please keep an eye on your newsletter and on our website.

Thank you, once again, to the Salem-Keizer community for supporting students and schools by approving the 2018 bond!

On May 1st,  The North Salem Viking Association and the American Red Cross have partnered with the Oregon Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Portland Post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) to host a community awareness event to highlight seismic risks and vulnerabilities in Oregon. The event will feature a showing of the Oregon Public Broadcasting and Oregon Field Guide documentary UNPREPARED. A panel of local engineers and emergency managers as well as Allison Pyrch and Chris Goldfinger, professionals featured in the documentary, will be available for questions following the film. The panel will answer questions about the Cascadia Event as well as other local seismic risks and how Salem and Oregon are preparing. The event is free and open to all ages. Door prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. We will also have representatives from many local emergency preparedness organizations on hand to answer questions, provide information, and offer services to get Salem prepared! The award winning UNPREPARED documentary highlights our seismic risks in Oregon and the potential for major disruption after the expected 9.0 Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. It also starts the conversation about what we as Oregonians can do to be more prepared, both individually and as a community.

Location: North Salem High School Main Auditorium 765 14th Street NE, Salem 97301

Date: Tuesday May 1, 2018  6:00 – 8:45 pm
