Good evening Salem parents. Due to a bus driver shortage for tomorrow, bus 23 students will be picked up later than usual (possibly an hour). If your students ride bus 23 and if possible, we encourage you to bring your student to school. If your student can't be picked up later, please contact the school and your student will be excused.

After school Own Transportation (OT) will follow the same system and pattern as last school year. We do ask for your patience as we get back into our routine for OT pickup. Please follow the map as a reminder for the end of the day procedures. We will not release vehicles to pick up in the OT line until all of the buses are leaving our parking lot with our bus-riding students. Please note that masks for parents are recommended and not required as our picture states. Thank you all!

We will try to complete testing by lunch each day and will need students here promptly at 8:15 to give them a calm start with school provided breakfast. Please schedule appointments for the afternoon, if possible, to minimize makeups of the missed sessions. We will test Tuesday through Thursday each week until May 6th (if needed). Chromebooks should be charged each night, and please encourage ample sleep each evening. Thank you! #LionPride
