Well here is the time of year either parent’s love or loathe. It’s back to school time.
I can honestly say I’m totally torn this year. My kids definitely are ready to go back to school for the structure, but I’m not ready to go back to work just yet. Ready or not….it’s here.
A few things for the back to school events in Salisbury this year: please make sure you have access to your student’s portal information. All bus cards and teacher assignments will be listed there. Bus cards will not be mailed this year. This is a change from last year.
