Congratulations Coach Paula and the Lady Savages Volleyball team on the big win! The Savages beat the Lumberjacks at the district tournament last night and will go on to the state tournament on the 27th and 28th of October.
Also note-The JV football game that was tentatively scheduled for Friday (October 20) against Council has been canceled.
Volleyball Senior Night is October 12th at 6:00 and Football Senior Night will be on October 13th at 6:45pm !
Great news Savages – We have worked with the Prairie staff to re-schedule today’s game to Monday, September 11th at 6:00 pm PST. This game will be subject to air quality… hoping for clear skies!!
Homecoming week is next week… At this time we will proceed as scheduled with junior high football and volleyball games on Thursday and high school football vs Notus on Friday the 15th.
Update-Work postponed until Tuesday
Starting Saturday September 9, excavation will begin for the installation of new fiber optic line to the High School. This is a highly anticipated improvement for our school’s internet accessibility. While it is regrettable for Frontier to delay the project into the school year, this project should have minimal impact on our school and community.
Starting on Saturday, crews will begin working on the West side of the lower (gravel) parking lot. During the Summit Volleyball match, all students and boosters will need to park along the east chain-link fence in the lower (gravel) lot.
After the Volleyball match on Saturday, further excavation will begin along the hill-side of the lower, paved drive-way of the High School and then on Ace’s place to the highway. This will not close either road… but it will make Ace’s Place one way for student, parent, and staff vehicles.
On Monday…. All traffic from Main Street, will proceed West (up) Ace’s Place… Exiting the Secondary school grounds will be on the gravel service road to the Elementary school and to Main Street. No traffic will be allowed to proceed East (downhill) on Ace’s Place.
To avoid congestion, staff parking will be on the east side of the pave parking lot only.
On Monday the 11th – please drive cautiously to avoid vehicles that may be driving the wrong way and for students on foot that could be in the traffic pattern. Also… please be aware of possible blockages, congestion or delays.
All intersections will be open, as the contractor will be “tunneling” under the asphalt to avoid unnecessarily closing access to our facilities.
Bus traffic will follow the same traffic pattern on Monday.
The expectations are that this work will be complete by the end of Monday the 11th.
Attn: Parents and Students
The Salmon River Board of Trustees recently revised the attendance policy.
It is the intent of the Board of Trustees to have students attend school on a regular basis. Regular and consistent attendance results in increased learning.
Parental calls and notes to the schools to report illness will not result in an excused absence unless a doctor’s note is provided.
Absences which will be counted as one of the 7 days per semester are but not limited to: suspensions, hair and photography appointments, illness that is not verified by a doctor’s statement, and any and all non-prearranged/pre-approved absences.
The ONLY absences (Excused Absence) that WILL NOT be used in calculating the attendance record are:
- Those that occur due to school-sponsored activities.
- Bereavement in the immediate family
- Subpoenas to appear in court or court-ordered
- Dental appointments, doctor appointments, illness or hospitalization verified by a doctor’s statement.
- Absences that are prearranged and approved by the school.
