Good afternoon Carlisle Indians!  I want to start by thanking EVERYONE who has worked so hard this week (students/parents for working on assignments, teachers for excellent communication with students, cafeteria staff for providing meals to those who have chosen to pick them up, and custodians for cleaning our building).  I have probably read over a hundred emails this week from different Carlisle Indians.  A few teachers have even made videos and shared them with their students.

Here are two specific announcements from Governor Holcomb today regarding education:

1.     All Indiana schools are ordered closed until May 1, 2020.  He acknowledged that this date might need to be extended but as of now, May 1 is the date.  Please watch the Southwest School Corporation web site for updates and/or from your building principal. 

2.     All State tests have been cancelled for the 2019-20 school year.  This includes IREAD, ILEARN, ISTEP+, I AM, WIDA and ISPROUT.  (I can hear the screams of relief already!)

In other news, you are officially on “Spring Break” beginning Friday, March 20, 2020 through  April 3, 2020.  All principals will be meeting with Mr. Stitzle on March 24th to discuss further decisions.  Stay tuned for further updates via Mr. Stitzle’s School Reach, my email, etc.  As your principal, please know that I am very concerned for your child’s education and we will be doing all that we can under these current situations. 

Last, I want to give a big shout out to our wonderful cafeteria crew that have handed out food for our students earlier this week as had been earlier announced as well as posted on Facebook, etc.  The current plan is to do this again on March 30 (2 breakfast and 2 lunch), April 1 (2 breakfast and 2 lunch) and April 3 (1 breakfast and 1 lunch).  The time for this is 11:00-1:00.  There is currently no food distribution over the regular scheduled Spring Break which is next week.

Until next time,

Take Care Indian Friends

Glenda Jones
