Updated SKPS Athletic Protocols and Safety Measures – Effective January 11, 2022

As shared earlier this week, we are continuing with our athletic activities while consistently reviewing our protocols and safety measures. For all of our athletic activities, we will continue to prioritize consistent safety practices for student participants, coaches, staff and spectators.

Spectator capacity limits

High School

Due to the increased risk of transmission for COVID-19 during athletic events, we will be implementing capacity limits at all SKPS athletic events beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 11. Details for each type of event/facility is below:

  • Basketball: Four (4) spectators per participant including basketball and cheer athletes, and pep band participants. This four spectator limit is subject to change depending on the event venue capacity limits. Team coaches will communicate with participants on final event spectator limits. Pep bands will be set in an area to allow proper distancing.
  • Wrestling: Four (4) spectators per participant.
  • Swimming: Spectator limits will depend on venue capacity at the KROC center (to be determined). More details on final capacity numbers will be shared with families once finalized.

Middle School

Due to venue capacity, middle school competitions will be limited to two (2) spectators per participant per event.

Face coverings and physical distancing requirements

All requirements for physical distancing and face coverings will continue to be maintained for participants, coaches and spectators. Requirements include:

  • Face coverings are required for all spectators.
  • Athletes are not required to wear a face covering indoors while actively practicing or playing a competitive sport at any level, including cheerleading and dance/drill.
  • Students not actively participating (i.e., on the sideline/bench during an indoor competition.) are required to wear a face covering.
  • Coaches and support staff are required to wear a face covering during indoor practices and competitions. This includes weight training regardless of location.
  • All individuals should maintain physical distance to the extent possible.
  • Face coverings are optional in outdoor settings.

Concessions, trips and other activities

All athletic activities such as overnight trips, extra team functions (ex. team meals) and concession stands will NOT be allowed.

Working together to maintain health and safety

As a reminder, families should be aware of the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 during athletic events, which could result in students needing to quarantine. Individuals from other households should consistently maintain physical distance.

These protocols are crucial to maintain safe and healthy athletic events for our students, families and community. Our protocols are reviewed regularly and any additional changes or adjustments to our protocols for students and/or spectators will be shared with families as needed.

Working together to closely follow all safety protocols will support our students in maintaining time in play, and in the classroom.

Think before you post

Recently, schools across the Salem-Keizer School District have experienced an increase in school threats, rumors of threats, and the spread of false information, which has been disrupting our learning environments and creating fear in the community.

Safety is our top priority

The safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and families is our top priority. Maintaining safety in our schools requires an ongoing partnership with school staff, students, families, law enforcement and the surrounding community.

In the aftermath of tragic shootings, such as the one at Oxford High School in Michigan, there is often an increase in hoax threats to schools and other public places. Safety is critical, and our district fully investigates each threat in collaboration with the FBI and/or our state and local law enforcement partners.

Issuing a threat is a crime

Recently, we have investigated a number of hoax threats of targeted violence against schools. These threats—often issued via text message or posted on social media—are taken very seriously. Our law enforcement partners investigate every tip to ensure the safety of our students, staff and community. Hoax threats can result in both arrest by law enforcement and/or suspension or expulsion by the school district. Hoax threats are not a joke, and they can have devastating consequences—both for the public and for those who post them.

Issuing a threat—even over social media, via text message, verbally, or through email—is a crime. Please share with your kids and those in your community that making a threat is a poor choice that could impact them for years to come.

Threats impact our entire community

In addition to the individual consequences a person may face, these threats have a serious impact on our community. They divert district resources from providing support for students and disrupt the learning environment for hundreds of students. Law enforcement resources are diverted from investigating other crimes, and they cost taxpayers a lot of money. The threats can also cause severe emotional distress to students, school staff and families.

Things to remember

Don’t share or forward a threat until law enforcement has a chance to investigate – this can spread misinformation and cause panic.

  • Don’t ever post or send any hoax threats online
  • If you are the target of an online threat, call your local law enforcement immediately
  • Salem Police Department Non-Emergency 503-588-6123
  • Keizer Police Department Non-Emergency 503-390-2000
  • Marion County Sheriff’s Office 503-588-5032

If you see a threat of violence posted online, contact local law enforcement or call 1-800-CALL-FBI. You can also submit information online to the FBI at tips.fbi.gov.

Use SafeOregon by calling or sending a text to 844-472-3367 anytime. Tips also can be emailed to tip@safeoregon.com or through the SafeOregon app.

Remember – a hoax threat is no joke. Think before you post.

Middle and high school bell schedules, late start days and first day of school

The start of the 2021-22 school year is right around the corner. Here is all the information you will need about bell schedules, late start days and the first day of school for middle and high school students.

Start and end times

This year, all SKPS schools will have a new bell schedule for the 2021-22 school year.

Middle school

Middle schools will start at 9:20 a.m. and end at 4 p.m., with the exception of Roberts Middle School which will start at 9:45 a.m. and end at 3:25 p.m.

High school

High school will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m., with the exception of the three locations below:

  • CTEC – 9 a.m. to 2:55 p.m.
  • Early College High School – 8:30 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.
  • Roberts High School – 8:30 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.

Programs

  • EDGE Secondary will start at 8:55 a.m. and end at 3:25 p.m.
  • The Community Transition Program will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.

Late start on Wednesdays

All SKPS schools will have a late start day on Wednesday. This means that the school start time will be one hour later than normal. Dismissal time will remain at the normal time.

For example, if school is regularly scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. and release at 3:20 p.m., it will still be released at 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday; however, school will not begin until 9:30 a.m.

A late start day allows school staff a regular time for collaboration and planning in order to better support our students.

  • 6th grade students will start on Sept. 7. They will then come back for regular instruction on Sept. 8, which happens to be a late start day.
  • 7th and 8th grade students will start on Sept 8., which happens to be a late start day.

High school

The first day of school for high school will be on a “smooth start.” This allows 9th grade students to get familiar with their school in a smaller setting before everyone is together.

  • 9th grade students will start on Sept. 7. They will then come back for regular instruction on Sept. 8, which happens to be a late start day.
