Sports physicals offered June 24, 25 and July 11

Maybe we are moving in the right direction…we finally have a date for Lehigh County to go GREEN!

We all know there will still be stipulations on what we can and cannot do safely but it is one step closer.

I’m pondering what our new “normal” will look like as we move forward. Please remember for the time being, most activities are asking for social distancing procedures to continue to be followed.

Eastern Salisbury Fire Department will host a PPL Live Line Electrical Safety Exhibit 6:30 p.m. July 13.

Final days of instruction announced

Well, we officially celebrated our first Memorial Day in quarantine by the time you read this. I hope that everyone did what they felt was safe for their family and had a wonderful time!

We are almost at the end of the school year….and I know I can’t be the only one who is happy with that right? My kids are done with virtual learning and really are missing the “school” routine.

All school district meetings held via Zoom; residents must register

I hope that everyone had a safe and happy Easter, quarantine style.

Last week, we all received the devastating news our children will not physically return to their schools until the fall. This has led to many heartbreaking realities for many. I hope that we are all doing what we can to stay safe, keeping our distance and having as much “normalcy” as possible right now.

The April meetings for the Salisbury Township School Board will now be held via Zoom.

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.
