Calling on everyone who loves game day!

2021-10-25T11:04:46-08:00October 1st, 2021|

There’s nothing like attending an athletic or sports event in person, experiencing the thrills and cheers from a live crowd while watching one’s favorite athlete compete to win. Much like these athletes and their fans, Salem-Keizer Public Schools wants to continue the joy of this in-person tradition and, we can, if we have everyone’s help.

Salem-Keizer Sports Fans, you can help reduce the spread of Covid 19 in our schools by always wearing your face coverings during school games. Doing so, will allow SKPS to keep hosting in-person events without having to reduce the number of spectators.

So, what can we do?

Follow safety protocols. Wear face coverings when gathering in school athletic stadiums, fields and gyms, and remember to do so regardless of vaccination status.

COVID-19 continues to have an unfair advantage and does not discriminate, but we can change that by working together to reduce the spread in our school facilities and communities. Simply, follow health and safety protocols. The surest way to stop the spread is by wearing a face covering, frequently hand washing and physically distance to the greatest extent possible as we cheer on our favorite athlete or team to victory.

Can we count on us?

Yes! Together we will make this a successful 2021-22 school year.

Important Update from North Salem High School Athletics: Football Game Day, 10/1

2021-09-29T17:10:39-08:00September 29th, 2021|

Viking community, 

As we enter the fall season, increased illness is to be expected even outside of impacts due to COVID-19, much like before the pandemic. However, out of an abundance of caution, our varsity football game will be canceled on Friday, Oct. 1 against Wilsonville High School due to increased illness. Activities are anticipated to resume the week of Oct. 4. 

Although we are disappointed to have to make this incredibly difficult decision, we know we must do what is best for the health and safety of our entire NSHS community. 

Remember, COVID-19 and other forms of illness impacts us all daily

It is critical that we follow all recommended health and safety protocols such as vaccination, wearing a face covering, hand-washing and maintaining physical distance both while in our school facilities, and out in the community.
