Thank You for Saying YES for Our Schools! | ¡Gracias por decir SÍ a nuestras escuelas!

As we head into summer break, we want to say “Thank you” to our community for approving the 2018 bond! Because of our community’s support, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will be able to make improvements, expansions and/or renovations all across the district. Improvements planned include additional space to serve our community’s growing enrollment as well as expanded career-technical (vocational) spaces, more space for science education, safety and security improvements and seismic safety upgrades.

Five schools are scheduled to begin construction in 2019 – Gubser Elementary School, Judson Middle School, Waldo Middle School, McNary High School and North Salem High School. All work approved under the bond is planned to be finished in about five years. For more information about projects funded by the 2018 bond, click here.

At many schools, construction is likely to take place during the school year. Schools, architects and the district’s bond program management team will work together to minimize disruption of the educational environment caused by construction. However, it’s important for parents, students and staff to be aware that school operations will be different during construction. Our commitment to student safety and success will be unchanged during construction.

We would once again like to extend our appreciation to the Salem-Keizer community for supporting students and schools by approving the 2018 bond!

Antes de partir para las vacaciones de verano, le queremos dar las gracias a nuestra comunidad por ayudar a promulgar el bono del año 2018. Debido al apoyo de nuestra comunidad, las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer podrán hacer mejoramientos, expansiones y/o renovaciones por todo el distrito.  Los planes para los mejoramientos en las instalaciones incluyen los siguientes: Crear espacios para el aumento de matrícula y también expandir los espacios de educación técnica profesional (vocacional); añadir más espacio para educación de ciencias; mejoramientos a los sistemas de seguridad y actualizaciones de reforzamiento sísmico.

Se ha programado primero a las siguientes cinco escuelas en las cuales se dará comienzo a los proyectos de construcción durante el año 2019: Escuela Primaria Gubser, Escuela Intermedia Judson, Escuela Intermedia Waldo, Escuela Preparatoria McNary y Escuela Preparatoria North Salem.  Se calcula que todo el trabajo planeado bajo el bono será terminado en aproximadamente cinco años. Si desean obtener más información acerca de los proyectos financiados por el bono del año 2018, por favor consulten la página web

En muchas escuelas, puede que la construcción se realice durante el año escolar.  El personal de la escuela, los arquitectos y el equipo de gestión del programa de bono del distrito trabajarán juntos para minimizar las interrupciones por motivo de la construcción en los ambientes educativos.  Sin embargo, es importante que los padres, los estudiantes y el personal estén conscientes de que las operaciones diarias serán diferentes durante la construcción. Nuestro compromiso a velar por la seguridad y el éxito estudiantil no cambiará durante el transcurso de los proyectos de construcción.

De nuevo, nos gustaría extenderle nuestra gratitud a la comunidad de Salem-Keizer, por apoyar a los estudiantes y escuelas al aprobar el bono del año 2018.
