Make-up days for snow closures announced


Due to inclement weather, Salem-Keizer students have missed four full school days, had one early release and one late start this school year.


Time at school is essential to student success. To make up for some lost instructional time, the district has decided to make changes to the school calendar.


Three school days have been added to the calendar:

·         Thursday, March 23, 2017, will be a school day for all students. Parent-Teacher conferences will take place after school and in the evening.

·         Thursday and Friday, June 15 and 16, 2017, will be school days for all students except graduating seniors. High schools will develop a revised schedule for second semester finals.


Dates of high school graduation ceremonies will not change.


Please be aware that additional calendar changes could be made if there is more inclement weather.
