Changes to bell schedules districtwide for 2021-22 school year | Cambios en los horarios de clases en todo el distrito para el año escolar 2021-22

Starting in the fall for the 2021-22 school year, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will have new bell schedules for all schools across the district.

For the past several years, we have heard from our families and educators that they want a later start time for older students and an earlier start time for younger students. Research shows many benefits of later start times for middle and high school students and we needed to align our elementary schools to a similar schedule.

We believe that the new bell schedule will better serve the needs of students across the district and lead to improved outcomes at all levels.

All schools will start one hour late on Wednesdays to give school staff a regular time for collaborating and planning support for students.

If you have any questions about bell schedule adjustments for the 2021-22 school year, please contact your child’s school.

Bell schedules 2021-22 (English)

A partir del otoño para el año escolar 2021-22, las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer tendrán nuevos horarios de clases para todas las escuelas del distrito.

Durante los últimos años, hemos escuchado de nuestras familias y educadores que quieren una hora de inicio más tarde para los estudiantes mayores y una hora de inicio más temprana para los estudiantes más jóvenes. Las investigaciones muestran muchos beneficios de las horas de inicio más tarde para los estudiantes de las escuelas intermedias y preparatorias, y necesitábamos alinear nuestras escuelas primarias con un horario similar.

Creemos que el nuevo horario de clases atenderá mejor las necesidades de los estudiantes en todo el distrito y conducirá a mejores resultados en todos los niveles.

Todas las escuelas comenzarán una hora más tarde los miércoles para darle al personal de la escuela un período de tiempo regular para la colaboración y para planificar el apoyo a los estudiantes. Si desea formular alguna pregunta sobre los ajustes del horario de clases para el año escolar 2021-22, comuníquese con la escuela de su estudiante.

It’s time to complete online registration & enrollment verification

It’s time to complete the registration/enrollment verification process for the 2021-22 school year! Completing this process early ensures our district can best prepare for staffing, program offerings and more.

Steps to complete online registration & enrollment verification

(1.) Gather needed documents:

  1. Proof of age (new student)
  2. Proof of address (new students)
  3. Immunization records

*If you are unable to provide any of the following documentation, you can still complete online registration. Your school will work with you individually to meet the needs of your student for enrolling in school. We welcome all students and families regardless of nationality, place of birth or other circumstances.

(2.) Log-in to ParentVUE:

Online registration and enrollment verification is done through a program called “ParentVUE.” Families will have one ParentVUE account for all students in their family.

If you have never used ParentVUE before, follow these steps to complete the activation process.

(3.) Complete Registration

Families can complete registration completely online through a desktop or mobile device. If you need assistance, please contact your child’s school. If a paper form is needed to complete registration, your school can assist with this.

During the registration process, families will register for school as well as elect if they want their child to attend in-person learning through their resident school or access instruction through the EDGE online program.

Updates to 2020-21 academic calendar | Actualizaciones del calendario académico 2020-21

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 SKPS 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.

En febrero, las comunidades de Salem y Keizer se vieron afectadas por inclemencias del tiempo que provocó cortes de energía generalizados en todo el distrito. Con los estudiantes y el personal atendiendo a las clases a través del aprendizaje integral a distancia, los cortes de energía continuos afectaron la capacidad de las clases para continuar, causando una semana de cierre de escuelas para los estudiantes de SKPS.

Debido a estos cierres de escuelas y la transición al aprendizaje híbrido para los estudiantes del kínder al 12º grado, el distrito necesitaba hacer los siguientes ajustes al calendario académico 2020-21:

Cambios clave para los padres y tutores legales de SKPS:

  • 8 de abril: día escolar para la escuela primaria, día sin contacto con los estudiantes para la secundaria (el programa EDGE continúa según lo programado previamente)
  • 9 de abril: día escolar para la escuela primaria, día sin contacto con los estudiantes para la secundaria (el programa EDGE continúa según lo programado anteriormente)
  • 12 de abril: ha sido actualizado al apoyo estudiantil completo el lunes, previamente designado como día de calificación parcial para la secundaria
  • 8 de junio: día adicional agregado para las ceremonias de graduación de las escuelas preparatorias de SKPS
  • 17 de junio – Último día para los estudiantes, previamente el 15 de junio.

El calendario académico completo actualizado, que incluye un desglose de las fechas clave para padres y tutores legales, está disponible en nuestra página web del distrito.
