No School - Winter Break
December 21 - January 1

Dear Carlisle Families,

Delaware City Schools will extend remote learning through
Friday, January 8, 2021. 
The additional time from January 4 - 10 will provide an opportunity to identify students and/or staff members who are exhibiting symptoms after the holidays to further reduce the spread of COVID-19 and quarantines.  Your child's school / teachers will communicate important information as we prepare to begin the second semester.

It is our intention to return to our blended learning schedule on January 11, however, the board will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation.  We will continue to offer meals for students as needed.  Please review and complete the Meal Form
if you are interested in receiving meal service during at-home learning.  If you are already signed up to receive meals, you do not need to complete the form.

Our school buildings will remain open during at-home learning, so please reach out to your student's building with any questions or concerns you may have.  We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to provide quality educational services and support our students.  

Thank you!
