Heroin and opioid prevention program Jan. 24

It’s officially the middle of the school year, with the end of the second marking period for the middle and high school coming to an end. This year is flying by. With that in mind, please remember that due to the two snow days we have used, the following days will now be snow makeup days with school in session: Feb. 16 and March 29. Both days will be early dismissals with Salisbury Middle School and Salisbury High School dismissing 12:15 p.m. and Harry S Truman Elementary School and Western Salisbury Elementary School dismissing 1 p.m.

Christmas tree collection throughout month of January

Winter is definitely making its presence known this year and hopefully things warm up, even just a tad, in the days and weeks to come.

Republic Services will collect Christmas trees during the month of January. Residents are asked to place the trees curbside on either collection day. Any tree over 10 feet must be cut in half.

Schools closed through Jan. 2, 2018

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. This time is always the busiest for us. Since I tend to procrastinate (yes I’m admitting it!), sometimes it takes a miracle to get done. New Year’s Eve is typically down time to recover from the festivities and get ready to start the next year. (Of course there is usually a resolution not to procrastinate.)

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed through Jan. 1, 2018. Schools will resume Jan. 2, 2018.

Jan. 4, 2018 will be the first Harry S Truman Elementary School T-shirt day of 2018. Be sure to wear your leadership shirts.

The holiday season is certainly in full swing, and we’ve now had our first snowfall of the season. If your kids are anything like mine, they’re counting down the days until the winter break. There are several happenings before that however.

Eastern Salisbury Fire Department will hold its annual Santa Run Dec. 16. Watch for Santa to come to your street on a fire truck.

Food drive continues through Dec. 18

Thanksgiving has come and gone and it is now officially the holiday season. Yes, I’m still one of those who won’t begin anything Christmas-y until after Thanksgiving. Welcome to the fun, yet chaotic holiday season!

Harry S Truman Elementary School continues to hold its annual food drive to benefit the local food bank. Non-perishable foods can be donated at the school until Dec. 18. Send in those goods if you are able.
