June 3 is the big day –the day the school board votes whether to close Western Salisbury Elementary School and have all the township students attend Harry S Truman Elementary School or keep WSE open and let there be two community elementary schools.
There is a document on the school website to answer questions about the proposed reconfiguration. Log onto www.salisburysd.org/news for the grade reconfiguration Q&A.
Awards night was held virtually May 18. The video can be viewed on the school district’s social media page. Congratulations to all who earned awards.
The last day of school for Salisbury High School seniors is May 29. All other students will enjoy their last day June 1.
A to-be-determined date will be scheduled for students to return their laptops and textbooks and pick up any materials they left in the building.
Despite the fact students are social distancing, there are still many senior activities being planned.
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.

Although there are still many uncertainties about the Salisbury High School Class of 2020’s end of year plans, some tentative plans have been made.
Based on many conversations and a survey sent to the senior class, graduation was rescheduled for July 22. It is hoped this new date will allow the class to have an in-person graduation at Miller Symphony Hall. However, if this is not possible at that date, a virtual graduation will be scheduled.

Welcome to quarantine day 1,342 ... well or so it feels. I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy as we continue to navigate these never before experienced experiences. I know personally, my kids are missing their friends and the routine of school so that in itself has multiple challenges. But we are making the best of it.
