Wednesday, Nov. 23, is an Early Release Day. Students at the Early Childhood Education Center release at noon; bus riders release at 1 p.m.

This week will be different. SRPMIC and Salt River Schools leadership approved half-day leave on Nov. 23 for all staff. That means there will be no extended day care offered at the ECEC on Nov. 23; the ECEC asks that all families make plans to pick up their children at noon (bus riders will dismiss at the normal early release time of 1 p.m.).

All Salt River Schools buildings and offices will close at noon (or whenever all students have been dismissed) on Wednesday, Nov. 23. Additionally, all Salt River Schools will be closed Thursday, Nov. 24, and Friday, Nov. 25, in recognition of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Please reach out to your child’s teacher or Family Advocate if you have any questions or concerns.

From our school family to yours, have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday.

The Early Childhood Education Center is focused on mitigating and
preventing the spread of viruses. We have received guidance and training from the Community Public Health Officer.

Moving forward, we will focus on the thorough health check every child receives each school day. Additionally, we will conduct temperature screenings until the number of viral illness cases at the ECEC declines.

The daily health check starts in the classrooms. If there is a health
concern, families are directed to complete the health check in the ECEC health office. Our health assistants will determine whether or not a child should attend that day based on how the health check goes.

We encourage families to allow a little more time during morning drop for the daily health check and temperature screening. Our goal is to support families and children and keep everyone safe. Questions? Call the ECEC at 480-362-2200.

The ECEC campus will be closed today, Friday, Aug. 5, due to the fact our facility has no power after a recent construction incident. No one was hurt, but we’re not sure how long we’ll be without power, and we cannot safely bring staff or students into the building at this time. We expect power to be returned to our site later today, and we'll update you when we have more information.

We know this is a great inconvenience, and we appreciate your understanding and support. Questions can be directed to Tami Brungard, ECE leader, at [email protected] Or, call Salt River Schools Administration at 480-362-2500.

Thank you,

Taté Walker

The safety of our students and staff is very important to us. In order to maintain a safe environment for our children to grow and learn, it is necessary that we practice our emergency response plans from time to time.

The ECEC practices four primary emergency drills each year: Fire, Lockdown, Shelter-in-Place, and Evacuation drills. Learn more about these drills here.

Today, August 3, the ECEC participated in its first Lockdown Drill. Staff and students were notified of this drill and discussed the importance of being safe in the classroom. When the Lockdown was announced, children were moved to a safe place in the classroom. Staff locked the doors and closed the blinds and ensured children were quiet during the drill.

The Safe Schools & Security team and our School Resource Officer checked all doors and verified that all classrooms were in lockdown. Once cleared, classrooms were released from the drill. Everyone did a great job, and we encourage families to talk with children about the drill and why it is important to practice.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call 480-362-2200.

This is a quick message to remind everyone to practice good driving and vehicle awareness whether you’re on campus or out and about.

There was an incident Friday, July 8, in front of the Early Childhood Education Center where a vehicle was pulled over by the Salt River Police Department. Some folks who saw the scene have expressed concerns, and I want to assure everyone that this incident did not involve a Salt River Schools employee or family. The person who was pulled over works for one of the third party contractors making updates to the ECEC this summer.

I have been in contact with Public Works, our Security team, and the owner of the company today, and I can assure you that our staff and families are safe and the situation has had no impact on our day-to-day operations or our construction timeline. I hope this can serve as a reminder to drive safely, use good judgement, abide by all driving laws, and be aware of your surroundings, especially on the road.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.

Dr. Vicky Corlett
Acting Interim Superintendent
