School picture days scheduled Sept. 13 and 14
The first weeks of school have arrived and they are pretty busy. Get ready to fill out all that back-to-school paperwork.
I’ll start with the good news: All Salisbury Township schools are closed Sept. 2 and 5 to observe Labor Day.
Salisbury Middle School will host the first open house in the district 6:45 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 8 followed by picture day Sept. 13.
Next is Western Salisbury Elementary School with open house for grades kindergarten, first and second 7 p.m. Sept. 13 and picture day Sept. 14.
Salisbury High School also has picture day Sept. 14. Last year the picture day changed for one of the schools, so it is always a good idea to visit the school website to get up-to-date information.

Can you believe it has been 15 years since 9/11? I read somewhere this year’s freshman high school class will be the first one in which students were not even born before Sept. 11, 2001. Then I realized my youngest is a freshman this year and I had just found out I was pregnant with him five days before 9/11.
After watching the horrific events on television that day, I remember wondering, “What kind of world am I bringing this baby into?” I also remember how in the weeks following, American flags were flying from every porch and flagpole to show unity and pride in our country.
If you have an American flag, I encourage you to fly it high Sept. 11.
