Lunch Visitor Guidelines

posted Sep 25, 2017, 1:49 PM by Chapman Hill

Dear parents,

We welcome you to come and enjoy lunch with your student, and ask that you follow these guidelines:

·              Complete a background check well in advance of your lunch time visit.  You can access the online form here:  Background Check link

·               Come at your child’s designated lunch time (11:30am, 12:00pm, or 12:30pm).  

·               Check in at the front office and obtain a badge.  If you arrive early you are more than welcome to wait on our comfy couches in the lobby.

·               If you bring younger siblings along, please monitor them at all times.

·               Once lunch time arrives, wait for your child in the designated lunch area (the pod closest to your child’s classroom).

·               Your child may invite one classmate to eat lunch with you in the designated lunch area.

·               Do not leave the designated lunch area to go to another area of the school or playground.

·               After lunch, students must return to their classroom to get ready for recess.  Parents and younger sibling do not go to recess with the student.

·               Check out through the front office and return the badge.


Thank you for your assistance in keeping Chapman Hill a safe and structured environment for your child.

Bond Measure

posted Sep 21, 2017, 1:28 PM by Chapman Hill

Members of the Salem-Keizer School Board are planning a general obligation bond measure for the May 2018 ballot. The proposed bond would address critical facility needs in nearly all schools and support buildings in our district.


The proposed bond would:

Construct additional space to address capacity issues, relieve overcrowding and address future enrollment growth.

Make seismic upgrades at schools rated very high risk for collapse in the event of a large earthquake.

Make safety and security improvements district-wide such as upgrading electronic badge access systems and relocating front office spaces for better visibility and control over who enters and exits school buildings.

Construct new Career-Technical/vocational education classrooms at all high schools to expand programs such as engineering, science and technology.

Expand and construct additional space at all six of the district’s traditional high schools to increase capacity from around 1,600 students to up to 2,200 students.

Make improvements to existing school buildings such as painting the exterior, sealing masonry walls, replacing roofs, etc.

Address equity issues across the district, such as access to technology and science programs.


The list of needed improvements came from a two-year planning process to create a Long Range Facility Plan (LRFP). A group of community members from Salem and Keizer served on the Citizens Facilities Task Force and reviewed every page of the LRFP. The total amount of work needed is estimated at $620 million and far exceeds what the district can afford to pay from the general fund. The Task Force recommended that the School Board pursue a general obligation bond to fund the work.


The proposed bond package is not yet final. The Board will continue to discuss the bond over the next several weeks. Follow the development of the bond package on the district website: www.salemkeizer.org.


Homework information

posted Sep 13, 2017, 7:48 AM by Chapman Hill

This year at Chapman Hill we are continuing with limited homework.  This does not mean your child will never have homework, but it does mean that your child’s teacher will not be assigning work to be completed solely at home.  If your child does not complete classwork, it will come home for them to complete.  Please check your child’s backpack each day for any unfinished classwork.

There is still an expectation that each child will read at home.  Additionally, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 are expected to practice their math facts.  Students in grade 4 and 5 may bring home projects, but there will be communication regarding any projects prior to them coming home.  Beyond that, we encourage you to spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success:  eat dinner as a family, play outside, and get your child to bed early.

Expectations by grade level:

All grades - read each evening.

2nd grade – one math page per week

3rd grade – cursive writing practice

4th grade – work on math facts, project-based learning.

5th grade - work on math facts, project-based learning.  5th grade students who need additional support in math may also have some homework to complete.  Your child’s teacher will communicate with you regarding this.
