As the holidays are approaching and Salisbury High School students and staff prepare for Thanksgiving break, activities are slowing down in the next two weeks.

Salisbury High School students will have two early dismissals before Thanksgiving break; one Nov. 18 and another Nov. 23. Students will dismiss 12:15 p.m.

Thanksgiving break starts Nov. 24 and ends Nov. 29. Students are able to enjoy their break with a leisurely five-day weekend to visit friends or family for the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving, Falcons!
