Mary Eyre Elementary
Spring Parent-Teacher Conference Schedule
Changes made to the school calendar because of snow make-up days require a change to the spring conference schedule. Conferences will be held after school and in the evenings on Wednesday, March 22, and Thursday, March 23. There will not be any daytime conferences this spring. We will contact parents to schedule conferences. Not all students will need a parent-teacher conference, so not all parents will be contacted. However, parents may still request a conference if desired.
Contact the Mary Eyre Office for more information.
Middle School Transfer Requests
Current fifth grade students (entering sixth grade in September) who want to attend a school other than their assigned school next fall (2016-17) must apply for in-district transfer (IDT) between March 1 and March 31, 2017.
IDT applications received after March 31, 2017, will not be considered.
ID request forms can be picked up at any middle school office, and must be completed and returned to the student’s assigned middle school during the application date window. There is no guarantee a transfer request will be approved. Students attending school on an IDT are not eligible for bus transportation.
More information on the in-district transfer process can be found on the Student Transfers page on the district website.

School Closure Make-Up Days
Due to inclement weather, Salem-Keizer students have missed four full school days, had one early release and one late start day this school year.
Time at school is essential to student success. To make up for lost instructional time, the district has made changes to the school calendar.
Three school days have been added to the calendar:
· Thursday, March 23, 2017, will be a regular school day for all students. Parent-Teacher conferences will take place after school and in the evening.
· Thursday and Friday, June 15 and 16, 2017, will be school days for all students except graduating seniors. High schools will develop a revised schedule for second semester finals.
Dates of high school graduation ceremonies will not change.
Please be aware that additional calendar changes could be made if there is more inclement weather.

Immunization Exclusion Day
Students who do not have up-to-date immunizations by February 15, 2017 will be excluded from school until they are properly immunized. Oregon law requires proper immunizations for all children attending public schools.
Your child(ren) can get immunization shots at their doctor’s office or at the Marion County Health Department. The Marion County Health Department charges $15 per shot; however, no one will be denied shots if they cannot pay.
Exemptions from immunizations are available for medical or religious reasons. Contact your health care provider or the Marion County Health Department for more information.
In the event of an outbreak, students who have medical or religious exemptions may be excluded from school for their own protection.
For more information, contact the Marion County Health Department at 503-588-5342.
The State of Oregon will be visiting our school early this year to conduct a bilingual audit. One of the documents that we are required to have in student cumulative folders is missing for some students. Next week, we will be sending paperwork home with children who are missing this paperwork in an envelope titled “Bilingual Information Needed” in your child’s backpack. Please sign and/or initial in the highlighted areas and return to the school office. For every form returned to the office, children will receive 5 Eagle Bucks Yep, it’s that important!
