Congratulations to the Class of 2019

Salisbury students are all excitedly looking forward to the last day of school.

Salisbury High School students will have a 12:15 p.m. dismissal June 12 and a 10:30 a.m. dismissal June 13. As the year comes to a close, I think that it is time to reflect upon what SHS students have accomplished throughout this year.

Salisbury students have been active in many different clubs.

Students Against Destructive Decisions became Students Taking Active Roles, which allowed the members to include more topics to plan more activities.

Volunteers needed for the HST Ice Cream Festival June 1

With Memorial Day 2019 in the books, that means we are officially in the home stretch of the school year. Everything seems to be winding down, but in some sense, things are starting to get a little more crazy.

On May 30, students in the gifted program will present in the Harry S Truman Elementary School gym. Look for information to be coming home with your student if they are in the gifted program.
