As part of our response to the Governor’s Phase 1 plan for reopening the Commonwealth, SHS’s office hours have been extended to 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM daily.  With large numbers of staff working regular hours, but from remote locations, we urge you to contact our faculty and obtain information by electronic means.  A list of faculty websites and emails is located HERE.  We appreciate your patience during this challenging period of time, and we look forward to continuing to Love, Engage, and Inspire our Spartans through the remainder of the school year.

Dear Spartan Families,

What an unusual situation we find ourselves in. I am confident Salem teachers are going to do amazing things on behalf of your young people in the weeks ahead.  This collective group of educators is the most student-centered, loving, and talented group of people I have ever met. I am honored to call them friends, and blessed to have them educating my own children.

It’s important that Spartan families are kept up-to-date on what’s going on in the school.  Always reach out to us with questions you may have.  You can reach the Main Office by phone at 540-387-2437 or contact teachers via email. If you have difficulty getting hold of anyone or need special assistance, my personal cell phone number is 540-389-2610, and you are welcome to give me a call.  Keeping you informed is of utmost importance to us.

We want to make sure all students have internet access.  If you know someone who has limited internet access, please visit and share the information there with them.  This site has details about getting free Comcast internet and a map showing where hotspots are located throughout Salem.  

We are using a modified schedule found here.

In our division, this school year’s number one goal is to provide connection, stability, and hope for kids.  We are honored to be able to play this role in the lives of young people. Student learning and student growth will be our very important secondary goals.

Here is a link to the bus delivery routes:

I don’t know what all we will encounter in the coming weeks, but I know there is no community I would rather go through this time with than the citizens of Salem.

You are loved and you are appreciated,
Scott Habeeb
