School information packets will not be mailed

All parents of children in the Carlisle Public Schools: Please note that the "summer packet of information" that is traditionally sent out in August to each family will instead be handed out on the first day of school to the youngest child in each family to be taken home. Please be sure to check your child's backpack for this packet and for the important information and forms that must be completed and returned to the school during the first week.
