NEW & NOTEWORTHY
NEW PARENT ORIENTATION
This is a required orientation for all 2021-2022 parents of new students, including all Kindergarten parents AND parents who were new for the 2020-2021 school year. We recognize that most of our procedures, processes and programming last year were affected by Covid and that we are heading into another new year for those who began last year. This will be a great opportunity to make sure that we are all on the same page heading into the 2021-2022 school year.

REGISTRATION DAYS
We are offering two days for registration this year. On Wednesday, August 11th registration is from 9:00am-12:00pm and Thursday, August 12th from 4:00-6:00pm. Registration times are come and go as we will not be having a parent orientation during Registration.

TELL THE TEACHER MORE (TTM)
During registration you will make an appointment with your child's teacher. Tell the Teacher More is a time when you can share all about your child with their teacher. This is an important part of our school day culture at Salem as the teachers glean as much information as possible about their students before the first day of school.

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
The 2021-2022 School year begins on August 18th with a half day. There is no after school care on the first day of school.

K-8 PARENT ORIENTATION
Returning parents are invited to attend the K-8 Parent Orientation on August 16th at 6:00pm.

MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENT NIGHT
On Wednesday, August 25th from 6:00-8:00pm we will be opening up our middle school classrooms so that middle school (6th-8th grade) parents can walk their student's schedule and meet all of their teachers. This is a parent only event.

SPIRIT STORE
Our Salem hoodie ordering process has changed. Previously, Salem hoodies could be ordered and picked up directly from the school office. From now on, hoodies will be ordered through the online store, just like all other spirit wear, and will be delivered to the school office as ordered. We will no longer be keeping a stock of sweatshirts on site. All spirit store orders are billed to your TADS account.

If you would like to have your spirit wear available for pick up at Registration, orders must be placed by end of business day July 15th. Orders placed after that date are not guaranteed to be ready for pick up at Registration.

*2021-2022 Spirit shirts are ordered at Registration and delivered 2-3 weeks later. Each student will receive a spirit shirt as part of their registration fee. If you'd like extra shirts, those can be ordered at Registration for an additional charge.
