District Facilities Closed to the Public – 8/19 – 8/21

Due to safety concerns for visitors and students, all district facilities will be closed to the public for the weekend of the solar eclipse through Monday, August 21, 2017.

Campuses will be closed to the public from 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 18, 2017, through 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.

The exceptionally large numbers of visitors expected to travel to Salem and Keizer could create severe traffic problems – even gridlock. Local authorities anticipate delays in responding to emergency needs, and will be prioritizing responses based upon available resources. This could mean limited, delayed or possibly no support for urgent circumstances.

Normal rental uses of schools have been cancelled or rescheduled. A very few exceptions for use have been granted to some high schools for required programs on Saturday, August 19, 2017, only. Exceptions were granted through a stringent and early application process, and no additional exceptions to district facility use during the closure period will be granted.

Is your student interested in football? Salem-Keizer’s 8th grade middle school football programs offer students a safe, fun and memorable experience.

Safety is the focus of Salem-Keizer middle school football. All coaches are skilled in the USA Football Program Heads-Up Training part of which includes concussion prevention techniques, along with this training, students, with parent permission, test in a program called ImPACT Testing & Computerized Neurocognitive Assessment Tools helping support students and coaches in support of concussion management injuries.  Athletic trainers will monitor and split their time between all middle school football games each week and only a phone call away if needed at another middle school site for support.

Each middle school’s program teaches students the fundamentals of safe play, develops skills, and helps student form friendships that can last a lifetime. Students play on JV or Varsity squads based on skill and experience levels. Students can advance to Varsity as they progress.

Middle school programs are connected to their respective high school programs, so students can smoothly progress to the next level of play. Having this connection also helps ease the transition to high school.

Football in Salem-Keizer middle schools is available to all. Football is a no-cut sport so anyone interested in playing can sign up. Plus, the annual fee is only $45 to participate, or $15 for qualified families.

Pick up or drop off registration packet as soon as our office is open on Wednesday, August 16th.
