Apply for secondary transfers MAR 1 – 31, 2018

posted Feb 1, 2018, 8:15 AM by Savanna Kraal

Current fifth grade students (entering sixth grade in September) who want to attend a school other than their assigned school next fall (2018-19 school year) must apply for in-district transfer (IDT) between March 1 and March 31, 2018.

IDT applications received after March 31, 2018, 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, http://www.salemkeizer.org/parents/student-transfers.

Today, January 10th, 2018, the staff and students at Sumpter Elementary School participated in a lockdown drill. Students were told by staff that we would be practicing being safe just as we do for other drills, prior to this drill beginning. The purpose of this drill was to prepare our students and staff for any emergency that may occur where it may be necessary for us to lock down classrooms and/or the entire building. We conduct drills because we want students and staff members to be safe as well as to develop an awareness of their roles in these various scenarios. Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding today’s lockdown drill.
