As we welcome April, the Salisbury Township schools are very busy with activities and field trips.

This past week I had the pleasure of going with the Harry S Truman Elementary School fourth grade class to Harrisburg. I must say, they were a well behaved group and represented the school well.

Thursday, February 11, 2016 by SARAH TAKACS in Columns

As pretty as all the snow was, I’m very happy the vast majority has melted. However, as a result of the snow the township schools have added several make-up days to the school calendar.

The first of these is Feb. 12. All Salisbury Township School District schools will now be open and in session on this day.

All schools in the district will be closed Feb. 15 in observation of the Presidents Day holiday.
