Christmas trees collected on second collection day

Now that the holidays are all behind us, January is in full swing! We have officially taken down all signs of Christmas at my house and it makes things just a tad less stressful for me personally.

That being said, Christmas trees will be collected during January on the second collection night with garbage pickup. Trees over 10 feet tall are requested to be cut in half, or you may just find them still on your curb.

There is a school board meeting scheduled 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16 in the administration building.

The Harry S Truman Elementary School PTO holiday shop is in full swing this week to allow students to pick out gifts for the holidays at an affordable price. Prices range from 25 cents to $10 and a shopping list was sent home with students.

Access student portals for bus and teacher assignments

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.
