Welcome Back to School Image

August 12, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back to the 2021-2022 school year!  This year, more than ever,  we are excited to welcome our students back to our classrooms. Carlyle is blessed with amazing  students.  We cannot wait to hear about their summer adventures and engage students in learning again.

With that being said, here are a few items you will need to be aware of as we transition into a new school year:

  • School begins Monday, August 16th 
  • School Schedule will be Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 a.m.
  • Breakfast and Lunch will be free for all students

  After much discussion and consideration the Carlyle Community Unit School District Board of   Education upheld its previously approved Return to School Plan for the upcoming school year. The district administration will continue to monitor the situation and adjust the plan accordingly.

   Return to School Plan Highlights:

 Mask Use

  • Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks.
  • Mask use is recommended, even encouraged, but not required for students and staff who are not     fully vaccinated. Staff and students will be supportive based on personal choice.
  • All individuals must wear a mask while on a school bus.
  • The mask requirement may be re-implemented at a later date, based on local data

*The complete Return to School Plan can be found at www.carlyle.k12.il.us

Again, I am looking forward to a great school year. We will see everyone on Monday, August 16th.
