Enjoy coffee with a cop Oct. 3

I come bearing good news, actually Great News!

Western Salisbury Elementary School students are back home! The mold issues have been taken care of and we moved back into our building Sept. 24. Needless to say, we are a little excited! Just a quick reminder that picture day is scheduled Oct. 9.

I just want to one more time say thank you so much to the staff and administration of Salisbury Middle School and Harry S Truman Elementary School. They were so wonderful to the staff and students of WSE. They helped make a trying situation much easier.
