Information About Snow Days

December 16, 2020

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

This year, the State Education Department created a pilot program where schools can hold a remote learning day instead of a snow day, with the idea being that students wouldn't lose a day of instruction because of the weather. We were reviewing this option as a possible means to protect spring break. However, any guidance provided by the State Education Department has not provided any concrete way to protect that break.

 

As a result, any snow day we have will be the traditional snow day with no in-person or remote instruction.

 

If the need arises for us to replace a snow day with a remote day, we'll share the logistics on how the day will work with enough warning for you to prepare.

 

Again, at this time, any snow day we have will be the traditional snow day with no remote or in-person instruction. We will notify everyone if we are using a snow day by using the phone calling system, Facebook, salemcsd.org, and our local media outlets.

 

 If you have any questions, please let us know.

 

Sincerely,

David J. Glover, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
