Buildings & Grounds

The mission of the Salmon River Building and Grounds Department is to provide a safe, comfortable and clean environment for students to learn and staff to work. The department also continues to improve facilities with the changing needs of our learners.

Facility Use

Salmon River Central School District is an integral part of the community in terms of its intellectual and social expression and development.  To this end, the Salmon River Board of Education is pleased to support responsible community organizations, associations and individuals for appropriate civic, cultural, educational or recreational activities that do not interfere with the delivery of education and the best interests of the District.  The Board of Education encourages the public use of our school facilities within Board Policy guidelines, when they are not being used for district curricular and extra curricular activities.

In recognition of the community school concept, the District may allow the use of school facilities by community organizations with primary consideration given to youth-related activities for students who reside in the District.   Thereafter, the use shall be on a first-come, first-served basis of completed requests. The calendar will open to outside organizations at the start of our fiscal year, July 1st. Patrons are not permitted to enter the facility prior to the agreed start time and must exit the facility by the agreed ending time. All requests must be submitted 30 days prior to the event. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions Use of District Facilities for additional information.

Outside organizations or individuals may utilize the facilities for their events for a fee.  The fee for custodial, lifeguard or food services are $25/hour outside of the normal operating hours for the District. All invoices must be paid within 30 days.  Organizations and individuals with unpaid invoices will not be allowed to utilize the facilities.
