Greetings Spartan Family!

As we wrap up the end of the year (and we can certainly be proud of what we've accomplished this year), we want to make sure we knock the last two weeks out of the park!

Please make sure your students are ready for activities, field trips and school work. Check out the Salida Middle School calendar on our website for the latest updates and details on what students need to remember to bring to be prepared for the final two weeks of school. 

You are invited to join us for the SMS accountability meeting on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 4:30 p.m., live and in person, here at the middle school library. Anyone interested in having a voice in the operation and future of SMS is invited to attend and topics on the agenda will include:
SMS school budget
Master schedule for '21-'22 school year
Staff changes
General school improvement
Moving forward with COVID - ideas to keep/change for '21-'22 school year

Also, SMS will be the host site for COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Friday, May 21, 2021 from 4-7 p.m. The Pfizer vaccine is now available for ages 12+ and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available for those 18+. This is a walk-in clinic and is open for ages 12+. If you would like to make an appointment, please visit chaffeecounty.rsvpify.com to secure a specific time. Additional details can be found here

Please feel free to reach out with any questions. 

We appreciate our community for helping us work together to get through a year that will be remembered in the history books.
