Changes in place for free grab-and-go meals

As we continue to navigate these uncharted waters, I hope that everyone is doing what they can to stay healthy and help flatten the curve. We are definitely going down in history for this worldwide event. I don’t know about you but I’m ready to resume my regular normal and my kids are missing school, if only for seeing their friends and teachers.

All Salisbury schools closed until March 27

Life these days is a little chaotic and stressful for everyone, everywhere. We are all supposed to be practicing “social distancing” and we have basically cleared out stores of all necessities. That being said, in case you have been under a rock somewhere, currently all Salisbury Township schools are closed until March 27, when they will re-evaluate and determine when it is safe to re-open for students and staff.
