Weekly Parent Email for the Week of:

September 18th – 22nd


Good Afternoon Silverton Middle School Parents and Families!

SMS Information:

Our first Silverton Middle School Fall Dance  is next Friday, September 22nd from 7pm-9pm. Tickets are on sale now!  The cost is $5 if you pay before the dance and $8.00 at the door. 6th graders will come to the library to pay, while 7th and 8th graders will pay just outside the cafeteria door. The presale goes through lunch on Wednesday. The criteria to attend the school dance are that your student must be at a Level 3 or below on the Discipline Ladder and must be in attendance the day of the dance. Remember to stay within our dress-code guidelines.  We are always in need of parent chaperones.  If you have a valid background check and would like to chaperone, please email Jessy Larsen at Larsen_jessica@silverfalls.k12.or.us. or call the office at 503-873-5317.

 The Free and Reduced Lunch Program has specific parameters that we follow when serving our students lunch.  Students who participate in the program must get an entrée, fruit, vegetable and a milk. If the student chooses to only take an entrée and not the sides, they need to have money to pay for the sole entree.  The other items that are in the kitchen such as granola bars, fruit snacks and breakfast bars are for sale and not a part of the free/reduced program.  Students cannot have more than one serving of an entrée, however they can have extra servings of fruits and vegetables.

Parents of Ashland-bound students:  Reminder that there is a meeting on Thursday, 9/21, at 6:30 p.m. in Ms. Willow’s room.  Ashland students and their parent/guardian need to be in attendance.


Bus Info-

Bus Forms – If you child is going to go home with a friend or is taking a bus somewhere other than their normal bus route home, Durham Bus Service now requires parents to fill out an  “Alternate Stop – Student Bus Note”.  Students can obtain this Alternate Stop note in the office if there is going to be a change in their after school schedules.  There is also a copy of the new form attached to this email.  Students will not be allowed to ride a bus that is different than their bus without this note.

If you have bus questions, please reference the online route schedule that Durham Bus Services has provided at: https://silverfallsschools.org/bus-routes/.
