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.

Well, here we are on officially the first full day of summer vacation for the kids. If your kids are home for the summer, there are plenty of options to keep them entertained. If yours are like mine….when they get bored, it’s usually not a good thing!
As the school year comes to a close, students excitedly wait for the final day of school when summer vacation will officially begin. Reflecting on the previous year, it seems Salisbury students have been busy academically and active in many different extracurricular activities.
It’s here – the last day of school! No more lunches to pack, no more dragging kids out of bed at 6 a.m. and flagging down the bus driver as my son puts on his shoes. No more asking “Do you have homework?” “Is your homework finished?” Oh wait, this is about the kids, right?
June 11 is an early dismissal. Salisbury High School and Salisbury Middle School will dismiss 12:15 p.m. and Harry S Truman and Western Salisbury elementary schools will dismiss 1 p.m.
