Carlisle Elementary Newsletter
  November 24, 2020 

Dear Carlisle Families, 
       Delaware City Schools will be moving to a fully remote learning model from November 30th through December 18th. During this time, we will continue utilizing the Cohort A and Cohort B calendar. Our online academy will continue to operate as normal. Teachers will begin communicating information to you regarding their individual schedules in Canvas over the next few days.

       During the fully remote learning model, teachers will be working from our Canvas platform. Our students are very familiar with Canvas and have been instructed on navigation through the platform. The schedule will be predictable from week to week. The teacher will post on Canvas the schedule and daily links. Students will join the class via video conferencing at specific times identified by the teacher. During those times, the teacher will lead lessons with the whole class. The time may also be used for small group and independent work. We will be taking attendance so it is important that your child attends the class meetings and completes daily assignments.

          We appreciate your patience and understanding as we move into full remote learning after Thanksgiving. We want to wish you and your family a safe and healthy Thanksgiving break. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
