Dear SMS Parents, Staff and students,

Thanks to everyone who has been a part of our success thus far this year.  Students, staff, parents and community folks alike have contributed to our ability to be in school and conduct meaningful face to face instruction here at SMS.  

I would also really like to acknowledge the work that the teachers have done this semester too.  Both from classrooms and from their homes, teaching and more importantly learning is taking place. So, if you see a Salida Schools staff member around town, please thank them for their time and dedication to keeping learning alive here in Salida.  

As we return from our extended Thanksgiving break and week of remote learning, I will also ask each of you to closely monitor your child for any symptoms related to COVID and to be very thoughtful both now and through the semester about sending your child to school with any symptoms or illness.  We want them at school, but we want everyone to stay safe and healthy too.

Please insist that your student continues to wear their face masks both when at school as well as when out in public.  Mask wearing along with hand washing and limiting group gathering size will be essential in allowing schools to resume and continue through the winter months. I suggest keeping a clean “back up mask” in backpacks as well.

Additionally, I am looking for some parent and community input for our school accountability committee.  These quarterly meetings give folks a chance to be involved with school budgeting, programming and direction for the future here at SMS.  I will encourage you to attend and participate in an upcoming meeting.  Please let me know if you are interested.  These are Zoom meetings.

Thanks again for having a child here at SMS and as always, feel free to call or email me with questions and concerns about school, your child or a specific situation.
