Some schools surrounding Salem’s district have been cleared to begin competition

SALEM, Va. – Members of the Salem athletic community met outside the South Salem Elementary School on Tuesday ahead of the district’s school board meeting.

Salem is making their voices heard for the “Let Them Play” movement. Inspired by its surrounding communities who have made leeway in getting the board’s to reverse their decision for athletic competition, the Spartans did the same.
