Preparing to return to school

We are so excited that middle school students will be returning to school April 13th. Please see the Principal Page for more details on the “Hybrid Learning” schedule for secondary schools.

Students will be required to wear masks throughout the day and bring their chromebook or personal laptop and charger daily. Students will not have access to lockers, so they will need to have a good backpack to bring their laptop equipment and school supplies daily. Students will also not be dressing down for PE, so no need for PE clothes this year.

Welcome Back Wildcats!

Welcome Back!

We are so excited to begin welcoming students back into our building for hybrid learning. In hybrid learning, students will continue to have class periods on their cohort days, but they will attend classes at school. Students will alternate between in-person learning in the school building and applied (independent) learning at home. Mondays will also be at home and will continue to be reserved for additional student support, family engagement and planning.

Middle School Hybrid Start Dates are:

April 13 or 14: Grade 6

April 15 or 16: Grades 7 & 8

School hours will be 8:45am to 1:45pm

We know that news of returning to school may come with a variety of emotions and a lot of questions. We will try to answer those questions as best we can. Below you will find some general information regarding our return to the building. Please make sure you read our upcoming newsletters, and check your email regularly, for additional information and updates. Facebook and Instagram are also great ways to receive updated information quickly so please follow us if you are not already.

Hybrid Learning Model Information:

  • Students will attend 2 days per week in-person and 2 days independent, online learning from home.
  • If your student is in the Tuesday/Thursday cohort, they will remain in that cohort and will attend school in-person on those days.
  • If your student is in the Wednesday/Friday cohort, they will remain in that cohort and will attend school in-person on those days.
  • Mondays will continue to be student support and staff development days.
  • Students will be required to wear masks while on-campus. Please make sure that your child has a mask that fits them properly and covers their mouth and nose, They may want to start practicing wearing their masks for longer periods of time, if they have not been used to doing so.
  • Students will follow social distancing guidelines, and wash or sanitize their hands frequently. Movement throughout the building will be limited.
  • Breakfast and lunch meals will be available for students.
  • Students will need to bring their charged Chromebook from home on their in-person days.
  • Lockers will not be used.
  • Drinking fountains will not be available. Students will need to bring their own water bottles.
  • Students will not be dressing down for PE and locker rooms will not be used. Please have your student dress in a manner that is suitable for activity if they have PE during Quarter 4.
  • Visitors and volunteers will not be permitted in the building.
  • All adults on campus will be required to follow the same health and safety guidelines as students.
  • Daily school activities will be modified to meet parameters of ODE guidelines for Hybrid learning.

While this next transition comes with some uncertainty, we at Walker Middle School are looking forward to welcoming our Wildcats back into our classrooms! As always, thank you for partnering with us to provide your child the best education we can.

SafeOregon Schools

Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) has officially joined SafeOregon, a confidential tip line that gives our kids, parents, schools and communities a confidential way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools has a sophisticated and proactive intervention system in place for timely interventions. These include the SKPS Office of Behavioral Learning, the Office of Safety and Risk Management, and our Threat Response System that offers step-by-step protocols on preventing and controlling potentially dangerous situations.

The SafeOregon tip line adds an additional resource to ensure students and staff have a confidential avenue for reporting and bolsters SKPS’ relationship with law enforcement. This program is run and managed by the Oregon State Police and has proven to prevent acts of violence.

“Since the SafeOregon began its statewide program, we’ve seen it grow as a resource for the communities we serve,” said John Van Dreal, SKPS Director of Safety and Risk Management Services. “We know that what keeps our children safe is an open line of communication, and SafeOregon provides that communication in a confidential way.”

All tips reported by members of the Salem-Keizer community– including parents, students and employees – in regard to school and student safety will be closely investigated by the Oregon State Police and SKPS. The safety of our students, staff and volunteers is without question, our highest priority.

We encourage all parents to download the SafeOregon App on their phones, and their child’s phone as well. Individuals may also report a tip by calling or sending a text to 844-472-3367 anytime. Tips also can be emailed to tip@safeoregon.com. For more information, go to www.safeoregon.com.

 

Las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer participarán en el programa confidencial SafeOregon

Oficialmente las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer (SKPS, por sus siglas en inglés) participarán en SafeOregon, una línea directa, informativa y confidencial que ofrece a los estudiantes, padres, escuelas y comunidades un medio confidencial para presentar denuncias de amenazas a la seguridad o posibles actos de violencia.

Las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer tienen establecido un sistema de intervención complejo y diligente para intervenciones oportunas. En este sistema se incluyen los diferentes departamentos de SKPS: el Departamento de Aprendizaje Conductual, el Departamento para la Gestión de la Seguridad y Prevención de Riesgos y nuestro Sistema de Respuesta a Amenazas, el cual contiene un método paulatino y detallado para prevenir y controlar situaciones potencialmente peligrosas.

La línea informativa SafeOregon es un recurso adicional que garantiza a los estudiantes y al personal escolar un medio confidencial para hacer denuncias y fortalece la relación de SKPS con las agencias policiales. Este programa lo dirige y lo gestiona la Policía Estatal de Oregon y ha demostrado prevenir actos de violencia.

“Desde que SafeOregon inició su programa a nivel estatal, hemos visto que es un recurso que se ha expandido en las comunidades a las que servimos”, dijo John Van Dreal, Director del departamento para la gestión de la seguridad y prevención de riesgos de SKPS. “Sabemos que lo que mantiene a nuestros niños seguros es una línea abierta de comunicación y SafeOregon ofrece esa comunicación de una forma confidencial”.

La Policía Estatal de Oregon y SKPS investigarán cuidadosamente todas las denuncias hechas por los miembros de la comunidad de Salem-Keizer, los padres, los estudiantes y los empleados con referencia a la seguridad en las escuelas o la seguridad de los estudiantes. La seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, personal y voluntarios es sin duda nuestra mayor prioridad.

Instamos a todos los padres a que descarguen la aplicación SafeOregon en sus teléfonos celulares y también en el teléfono de su estudiante. Las personas también pueden presentar una denuncia al llamar o al enviar un mensaje de texto al 844-472-3367 en cualquier momento. Asimismo, pueden enviar las denuncias por correo electrónico a tip@safeoregon.com. Consulte la página web www.safeoregon.com.
