Oct. 20 will be early dismissals for all schools in the township. SMS and SHS will dismiss 10:45 a.m. while Western Salisbury Elementary School and Harry S Truman Elementary School will dismiss 1 p.m. If there are any changes to dismissal procedures for your student, contact their school to make that known.

The next HST T-shirt day will be Oct. 26. Don’t forget to wear your leadership shirts!
Oct. 27 will be the annual Halloween celebrations in the elementary schools. The HST Halloween parade will begin 2:30 p.m. Visitors are asked to park in the school lot or on Gaskill Avenue so the children can parade around the school.
Oct. 30 kicks off the HST book fair. Evening hours for shopping will be 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31.
Oct. 30 is also the fifth grade invitation to lunch at HST. Please note this year you must list the name of the person coming to the lunch.
