Jr. High Parent Letter

Posted on: August 9, 2021

Welcome back students! We are excited to see everyone Thursday night, and the first day of school on Monday. Here are a few topics to consider as you prepare for your 1st day back to school:

• Bring a device---if you have a device (i.e.…Chromebook, iPad, laptop, phone) that you can get on the internet with, please bring it to school with you. This is not mandatory, however making sure everyone can get into their emails, signing into Google Classroom, and signing up for Remind will be required on your orientation day. If you do not have a device, we will provide a Chromebook for you that will be returned at the end of the day. Students will log onto the student Wi-Fi they used last year.

• 1 st day forms—this year, we will use “Final Forms” to help eliminate paper hard copies. Families will soon receive an email to register for their accounts. Final Forms will provide all forms such as; updated emergency medical forms, free/ reduced lunch forms (must fill this out every year), district technology agreement, etc.……….. We will provide more information Thursday and the 1st day of school. All the forms are on the Carlisle website (www.carlisleindians.org) • Lunches---lunch and breakfast are available at no cost. There will be no money taken during the lunch lines. All money needs to be loaded to your student EZPay accounts. If your student brings in cash, they must take it to the main office for them to distribute to the lunch staff. We will be “cashless” for the 2021-22 school year.

• Back Packs/ water bottles---We will not assign lockers the 1st quarter. Please use your backpacks or a carrying bag this year to carry your items from class to class. We are not asking you to go buy a backpack, however a handheld bag will work fine. Water bottles are also welcome to be carried during school hours. We are in the process of installing the bottle filling water fountains throughout the buildings. Finally, if you drive/ ride to school, please follow the path that was sent via email and is posted on the website. We plan on having numerous signs in the parking lot and on Jamaica Rd. Please be cautious and you will be directed by school personnel the first few weeks. Please remember, we will not dismiss from your cars or by bus until 7am. However, to avoid traffic congestion, arriving at 7am is not mandatory. School officially starts at 7:15am, so there is a 15 min. cushion for arrival. On dismissal, student drivers will be dismissed at 1:58pm and the rest of the student body will be dismissed at 2pm. If you are picking up your student please follow the same path as you did in the am. All cars must stay single file and exit to the left as you are leaving the campus. If you walk home, you must stay on the sidewalk until all cars/ buses have exited the parking lots. Again, please be patient, we will make adjustments as needed. We can’t wait to see everyone next week! Go Indians!
