NSHS Theater Arts program presents..

2016-09-29T07:05:43+00:00 September 29th, 2016|

North Salem High School Theater Arts presents…


This is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.

Playing in the NSHS Auditorium:

September 29th, 30th, October 6th, 7th, and 8th at 7pm.

Matinee October 8th at 2pm.

New Online Payment Portal

2016-08-13T09:12:44+00:00 August 13th, 2016|

This fall, parents of Salem-Keizer students have a new, convenient option for paying student fees.

Through the Online Payment Portal, parents can use a credit card to pay athletic fees, library book fees, purchase ASB cards, make a donation, and take care of other payment transactions. The Online Payment portal processing fee is the same as the fee charged when making a credit card payment in the school office (2.75 percent).

The Online Payment Portal does not replace the food service payment system, EZSchoolPay.

Find a link to the Online Payment Portal on our school website, or visit https://skpay.salkeiz.k12.or.us.
