Audio Message Shared with Families on August 17, 2023

Hello, this is Dr. Friend, Superintendent of the Carlisle Area School District.  The administration, faculty, and staff are looking forward to the return of students for the 2023-2024 school year.

Our first day of school for students in 1st through 12th grade is Tuesday, August 22nd.  Kindergarten students have an assigned first day of school, called staggered start, within the first three days of school. 

Friday, August 25th is an in-service day.  There is no school for students.  All students Kindergarten through 12th grade will return to school on Monday, August 28th, and this will be a full five-day week of school.  You can access the full district calendar on our website, carlisleschools.org. 

At the elementary level, you can find school supply lists by clicking the appropriate banner on the left side of our website.  Middle school students can find their school supply lists on the Wilson or Lamberton Middle School website.  High school students will receive their school supply requirements from their individual classroom teachers next week.  If any student has difficulties obtaining their school supplies, they simply need to speak to their classroom teacher, school counselor, or principal. 

It is very important that if you think your child is eligible for free or reduced lunch, and you are not approved through the direct certification process, please make sure to complete the form on ourwebsite.  This year all students, regardless of eligibility, will receive free breakfast.  Please encourage your student to eat breakfast every day.

By this time, all bus information has been sent to families.  Additionally, all students in 1st through 12th grade should have received their schedules.  If you have not received any of this information, please contact your building secretary.

All of the information that I have shared on this brief phone call is posted on our district website for your reference.  Once again, we look forward to the official start of school on August 22nd!  Remember, together we are Herd Strong!
