Superintendent Perry’s update about athletics and CDL | Actualización del la Superintendente Perry Sobre Atletismo y CDL

2021-01-11T11:49:30-08:00December 17th, 2020|

Hello Salem-Keizer Families,

First, some good news. We are planning to return to outdoor athletics in January. For students involved, coaches will be reaching out during the first week of January with details on athletics that qualify, including schedules. While we are excited about this, we were really excited about having students back in school.

Each week, the metrics in Marion County continue to rise. Recent numbers are over 600/100,000, so as it looks like right now, we won’t be able to start blended learning in February for students, K-12. Meanwhile, the district will continue to monitor metrics over the break and keep you updated if anything changes.

Please know, we are eager to see your kids in school when the metrics improve, and we need everyone’s help. Please remember to wear a face covering, socially distance, avoid large gatherings and continue to follow the guidance from our state.

My best to you all for a safe and enjoyable winter break.

Christy Perry
Superintendent of Salem-Keizer Public Schools

Saludos, familias de Salem-Keizer:

Primeramente, les tenemos buenas noticias. Estamos planeando regresar a los deportes al aire libre en enero. Para los estudiantes que participan en los deportes, los entrenadores se comunicarán durante la primera semana de enero con detalles sobre los deportes que califican y los horarios. Si bien estamos entusiasmados con esto, estamos realmente emocionados de tener estudiantes de regreso en la escuela.

Cada semana en el condado de Marion, los índices continúan aumentando. Las cifras recientes superan los 600 casos por cada 100.000 personas, por lo que parece que en este momento no podremos comenzar el aprendizaje combinado en febrero para los estudiantes del kínder al 12º grado. Mientras tanto, el distrito continuará monitoreando los índices durante las vacaciones de invierno y los mantendrá actualizados en el caso de cualquier cambio.

Por favor, sepa que estamos entusiasmados por ver a sus estudiantes en la escuela cuando mejoren los índices y necesitamos la ayuda de todos. Por favor recuerde usar una mascarilla o protección facial, distanciamiento social, evite reuniones numerosas y continúe siguiendo las normativas de nuestro estado.

Mis mejores deseos para que todos ustedes disfruten unas vacaciones de invierno seguras y agradables.

Christy Perry
Superintendente de las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer
