From Superintendent Graden’s December 4th Message:

All Saline Y5-12th grade students will continue in the remote learning model through Friday, January 8th, 2021. This decision is based on the local community spread and our ability to operate the in-person school day. In addition, our leadership team believes that the best thing we can do for students at this time is to provide a consistent instructional model.

A Note from our Social Work Team…

Dear SAS Families,

As we head into the holiday season and the global pandemic continues, we know that the needs of our families continue to be significant.  We are continuing our partnering with Saline Area Social Services to offer assistance to struggling families.

Similar to Thanksgiving, Saline Area Schools families (including school of choice students and employee children) are eligible to receive bags of supplies for a Winter Break meal from Saline Area Social Services (SASS).

List of items:

  • Two packs of macaroni and cheese
  • a can of cream of mushroom soup
  • turkey gravy
  • two cans of peas
  • two cans of tuna
  • egg noodles
  • peanut butter
  • a pack of mashed potatoes
  • either pistachios or dried blueberries
  • cake mix

Please note that similar to SASS Thanksgiving bags, they will add fresh produce into the bags as well.  Depending on availability, they may also have turkeys as well.

Please call Saline Social Services at 734-429-4570 by Thursday, December 17th.  When you call, let them know that you are a Saline Area Schools family.
