Attention: Parents & Guardians of Jr./Sr. High School Students

November 9, 2021


Dear Salem Jr/Sr High School Parents,

I am writing to share with you some important dates coming up as well as some other news related to the Jr/Sr High School.

Important dates this month:


  • Wednesday, November 10, 2021 is our Emergency Early Release Day (Go Home Early Drill).  Students will be released and arrive home approximately 10-15 minutes early.  There will be no after school activities.

  • Thursday, November 11, 2021: No School in Observance of Veterans’ Day

  • Wednesday, November 24-26, 2021: Thanksgiving Recess

Dress Code Policy

I would like to make you aware that based on input received from students, parents, faculty and staff, we have revised the current dress code.  This will become effective immediately and replace the dress code that is printed in the student handbook. Please see the revised dress code policy attached at the end of this letter.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee Members Needed

We are looking for parents/guardians who are interested in serving on the district’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee.  The committee will meet the first Monday of each month from 6-7pm. We ask that volunteers commit to serving for the entire school year.  The committee will be made up of representative stakeholders including parents/guardians, teachers, staff, administrators and students. The committee’s work will be guided by the related policy of the Board of Education which is currently under development.  For more information or if you are interested in being a parent representative for the Jr/Sr High School, please contact Julie Adams at or call 518-854-7600.


Wishing you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.



Julie A. Adams, 7-12 Principal
