Estimados familias vikingas,

Quiero tomar el tiempo para comunicarles sobre una posible demostración/huelga que puede ocurrir el 20 de abril.  Espero que con este comunicado puedan tener un mejor entendimiento sobre lo que va ocurrir el día 20, y puedan tener la oportunidad de hablar con sus estudiantes sobre este posible evento.

Primero que nada, cualquier demostración/huelga no son eventos sancionados o endosados por la escuela; sin embargo, los estudiantes tienen permitido a ejercitar sus derechos de voz.  El rol principal de los empleados de la escuela preparatoria de North Salem, y del Oficial de Recursos de la Escuela, durante una demostración/huelga es de mantener a todos seguros.  El personal de la escuela no comparte su opinión sobre la demostración actual que se esta protestando.  Tuvimos una demostración en marzo para honrar a las 17 víctimas de la tragedia de Parkland, Florida.  Esa demostración fue pacífica, los estudiantes se mantuvieron en la escuela y regresaron a clases después de los 17 minutos de huelga.  Es nuestro entendimiento que los estudiantes organizando la huelga para el 20 de abril, están planeando salir de los terrenos de la escuela y caminarán al capitolio.  Lo siguiente es información sobre la huelga el 20 de abril:

 

  • La demostración empezará a las 10 a.m. el 20 de abril con estudiantes que quieran participar en dejar la clase.
  • La demostración es un llamado a la Reforma de Control de Armas.
  • No hay un plan para llevar a cabo una huelga en los terrenos de la escuela.
  • La tarea principal de North es de asegurar que los estudiantes estén con bien mientras salgan de los terrenos de la escuela.  Nosotros (personal de la escuela) no va a supervisar la huelga en el capitolio.
  • Cuando los estudiantes salgan de la escuela para ir a la demostración, será una ausencia injustificada.

 

Puntos importantes de saber por si su estudiante decide participar en la huelga del 20 de abril:

 

  • Esta huelga no es sancionada o endosada, es importante saber que si el estudiante sale de los terrenos de la escuela, están eligiendo estar en un ambiente sin control en donde no habrá supervisión del personal de la escuela North o de las escuelas públicas de Salem-Keizer (SKPS).
  • Las reglas y horarios de transportación del distrito no se cambiarán para este evento.  SKPS no será responsable por cualquier incidente que pueda ocurrir durante actividades de paseos que no sean aprobados.
  • El distrito trabajara con la policía local para ayudar a que los estudiantes estén lo más seguros posible mientras estén fuera de la escuela, pero es importante entender que los estudiantes que dejen los terrenos de la escuela ya no serán responsabilidad de las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer.

 

Si tienen alguna pregunta, por favor de llamarme o mandarme un correo electrónico, o comunicarse con cualquier administrador de la escuela North Salem.

Dear Viking Families,

I want to take some time to communicate about a possible demonstration/walkout that may occur on April 20th.  I hope that this communication allows you to better understand what may occur on the 20th and to also give you an opportunity to have discussions with your student about this possible event.

First of all, any type of demonstration/walkout is not a school sanctioned or endorsed event; however students are allowed to exercise their freedom of speech rights.  The main role of North Salem High School  employees and our School Resource Officer during a demonstration is to keep everybody safe.  School personnel do not share our opinions about what the actual demonstration is protesting.  We had a demonstration in March that honored the 17 victims of the Parkland, Florida tragedy.  That demonstration was peaceful, remained on campus, and students returned to class after the 17 minute walkout.  It is our understanding that the students organizing the April 20 walkout, plan to leave  campus and walk to the State Capitol building.  The following is more information regarding the April 20 walkout:

 

  • The demonstration will begin at 10 a.m. on April 20th with students who choose to participate walking out of classes.
  • The demonstration is to call for Gun Policy Reform.
  • There are no plans to conduct a demonstration on campus. 
  • North’s main task will be to ensure that students are safe from the point of walkout to exiting campus.  We (school personnel) will not supervise the demonstration at the Capitol.
  • When students leave campus for the demonstration, it will be an unexcused absence.

 

Here are some important things to know if your student elects to participate in the April 20th walkout off campus:

 

  • As this walkout is not sanctioned or endorsed, it is important to know that if students leave campus, they are choosing to enter an uncontrolled environment where there will not be supervision from staff at North or Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS). 
  • The District’s transportation policies and schedule will not be altered for this event. SKPS will not be liable for any incidents that may occur from non-approved forms of travel during this non-sponsored activity.
  • The District will work with local law enforcement to help keep students as safe as possible while off campus, but it’s important to understand that students leaving campus will no longer be the responsibility of Salem-Keizer Public Schools.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me or any North Salem High School administrator.

 

Thank you for your support,

 

Sara LeRoy, Principal

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.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools is happy to announce we will be hosting two events to feature the documentary Screenagers. This documentary is designed to delve into the struggles our students face with technology and the issues of social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. 

When are these showings? 

  • Wednesday, April 11 |  Salem Public Library, 585 Liberty St. SE, Salem
  • Tuesday, April 24 |  Keizer Civic Center, 930 Chemawa Road NE, Keizer

We will also be hosting a Q&A panel consisting of members of SKPS staff, Salem and Keizer Police Departments, and Marion County Health Department. This panel is designed to continue the important dialogue with our parents and community members around how we can keep our students safe and healthy online. This will not be an opportunity for school specific concerns or personal matters concerning students. Debbie Joa, Prevention and Protection Coordinator for SKPS, will be at the event should a parent/guardian wish to privately discuss a personal matter involving their child.  Debbie will then forward information to the appropriate school administrator.
