Parents and guardians of students currently enrolled in West Salem schools (kindergarten through seventh grade) should have recently received a letter from the district regarding school assignments for Fall 2011. The district is asking parents and guardians to please look for the letter. If a letter is not received by the end of spring break, please call the boundary information line, 503-399-3246, and request a copy of the letter.
Due to school attendance area boundary changes, nearly half of West Salem students will be assigned to a different school this fall. New boundaries for school attendance are needed to relieve overcrowding and balance enrollments in all West Salem schools, including the two new schools being constructed as part of the 2008 construction bond.* Kalapuya Elementary School and Straub Middle School will open this fall.
For more information on West Salem boundaries, contact any West Salem school office or visit the West Salem Boundary Info page.
*By law, bond funds are dedicated for new construction and renovation projects and cannot be used for school operations. Thanks to the community's support of the bond, our schools will provide a healthier and less crowded learning environment.
