New Online Service for Elementary Parents

posted Aug 17, 2015, 4:02 PM by Clear Lake   [ updated Aug 17, 2015, 4:49 PM ]

Parents of Salem-Keizer Elementary students will have access to an online information system called ParentVUE starting this fall.  

Previously, parents of middle and high school students could find information about student attendance, classes, and grades online through a service called Intouch Online.  This fall, ParentVUE is replacing Intouch Online.  

ParentVUE will offer some information for parents of elementary students.  Parents will be able to log in to find information about their student's:
  • Attendance
  • Class schedule (Homeroom, PE, Music, etc.)
  • Immunization records
  • Progress reports when finalized (three progress reports per school year)
  • District calendar

The District will be mailing log in information for ParentVUE to families prior to the start of school.

For more information about ParentVUE, please visit

The McNary High School Sports Field Synthetic Turf project is getting very close to achieving it's fundraising goal.  However, we're also very close to running out of time to be able to pull the trigger for this summer's build, and have the Turf completed by the start of school in the Fall.

The majority of the fundraising and in kind donations have come from local business and long time McNary supporters.  The rest is needed from our community.  The final $53,000 needed will only require 530 families to donate $100, 53 families to donate 1,000 dollars, or any amount you can afford would be extremely helpful.

Please join us in supporting McNary High School and our youth programs by donating today.  Please go to the Go Fund Me link below to pay with credit card….it only takes a few minutes and you’ll receive a tax donation receipt via email.

Thank you for supporting our Keizer community!

Free full-day kindergarten starts next fall

posted Feb 11, 2015, 2:29 PM by Clear Lake

Starting fall of 2015, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will offer free full-day kindergarten.

Previously, full-day kindergarten was offered as a tuition-based program at a few schools, and half-day kindergarten was available for free. The district will no longer offer half-day programs, but many private kindergarten providers will still offer half-day. Children are not required to attend kindergarten, however it is highly recommended.

Students who turn five on or before September 10, 2015 are eligible to register.

Registration opens February 17, 2015.

Parents are asked to register students right away so the district knows how many students will be attending in order to prepare an adequate number of classrooms, supplies, etc.

Early registration will help parents stay in the loop of upcoming school events like kindergarten orientation, which will take place in May.

How to register

To register, please visit the school and pick up a registration packet. If you’re unsure what school is assigned to serve your residence address, please visit the district’s school finder page: www.salemkeizer.org/content/boundary-information

Parents must complete and sign the forms in the registration packet (registration form, home language survey, immunization form) and provide. 

  1. Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc. 
  2. Original birth certificate for the child. The school will make a copy and return the original to the parent.

Help your student get ready

Parents can help students get ready for kindergarten by helping them:
·         Hold a pencil, crayons and scissors correctly
·         Practice writing his/her name
·         Learn the ABC’s and how to count to twenty
·         Name and identify basic shapes, such as square, triangle and circle
·         Learn how to take turns and share with others

Please contact your school with questions about registering for kindergarten.
