Salisbury schools closed March 8 for an in-service day

Despite Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction for an early spring, The snow keeps piling up. Hopefully spring arrives soon.

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed March 8 for a teacher in-service day. School will resume March 11.

Daylight saving time begins March 10; don’t forget to “spring” those clocks forward one hour. Also remember to change your smoke detector batteries as well.

We love our fire departments; however, seeing them due to a fire is not the best way to meet them.
