Inclement Weather and School Closing Information
Periodically Salem Christian School will need to be closed due to inclement weather or other unforeseen reasons. We do our best to ensure everyone is informed of these events. You can find out about these events from:
  • A text that is sent out. (Be sure you update your information in RenWeb.)
  • An automated phone call is sent
  • WFMZ is notified (you can sign-up for text alerts from them for your local busing school district too.)
  • A posting on Social Media
  • A posting on the school website
  • A push notification from the school app
If the busing school district is not busing and Salem Christian School is open, it is considered an excused absence for the students in that public school district.
Delays are usually two hours. If there is a delay, no one will be at the school to receive the students until 9:40 on these delays. We need to provide an opportunity to clear the sidewalks, driveways, and prepare for everyone to arrive safely.
Building Update
The elementary classroom floors for two of the new rooms is complete. We are waiting for inspection in order to proceed. It is going to be a nice space when it is finished.
In case you missed it, the old high school rooms are being transformed into two much larger, more usable classrooms for the elementary school. We are looking forward to getting the rough framework and electric inspected soon, then the finishing will start. Once this phase is completed then the other elementary classrooms can be renovated and enlarged.
