COVID-19 Testing Information

As we enter a new school year, we are hopeful that there will be less disruption so that our students can re-engage with the robust educational opportunities that the Salem Public Schools offers.  However, we know that the virus is still with us, and we must continue to mitigate the risks to our community members.  We have taken extraordinary steps to protect our students and staff with health and safety guidance that can be found in our family health handbook.  As we have been accustomed to, this guidance is likely to shift throughout the school year as we learn more about COVID-19 and its variants.
