Carlisle is offering Curbside Book Drop-Off & Pick-Up on December 8th from 11:00am-12:30pm & 2:30pm-4:00pm.

Important Information 
for DCS Families 
- Delaware City Schools can waive school fees for students who qualify. To apply for a fee waiver, the 
free/reduced lunch application must be completed. Once approved, fees will be waived for the current school year. (Completing this application is also important for families to receive the P-EBT card, which allows for additional food benefits during the pandemic.)

- During remote learning, families can pick up a week's worth of meals (breakfast & lunch) on Wednesdays. These meals are available to all students at no charge. Please complete the meals form to reserve your meals and indicate where you will pick them up. (Limited bus stops have been added to serve students that are not in walking distance.) Click the "meals form" above for more information.
