Principal's Message

Ms. Chinita Irby

The staff at Salem Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2021-2022 school year.  We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student.  We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students.  Learning is not an easy process! It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by everyone, the teacher, the parent, the principal, but most importantly the student. 

Research and experience shows us that a parent’s/guardian’s involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school.  To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:

  • Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.
  • Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.
  • Monitor your child’s homework daily.
  • Expect and support positive behavior at school.
  • Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.

My door is always open if you have questions or concerns that need to be addressed. You may reach me at (334) 996-8636 or Thank you for the support you provide to your child and to our Salem Elementary School. We are here to serve you and your family in this most important work.
