This is true for volunteering, lunch visits, attending Good Morning Carlisle on Fridays ~ anytime you are going past the front office. Thank you for your cooperation.
Thanks to all of you who are getting your kids to school on time and modeling the importance of being at school, ready to learn at 7:45 (or earlier) each morning! Carlisle students are ready to go each day and excited about learning!
Please remember that safety comes first no matter how you are traveling to school. Please use the crosswalk when crossing the street and drive safely in carpool. Children should always exit on the right side of the car when coming through carpool. Children should not exit cars in the middle of the driveway or in the street. Safety Patrol members are stationed along the front sidewalk to assist your children until the 7:45 bell rings. Adults should not get out of the car for any reason while in the driveway. Please have your children ready to get out of the car as soon as the car stops in the carpool lane.
Thanks you for your cooperation with each of these carpool safety rules and thank you for modeling respect for our rules and for one another when bringing your children to school each day!

Notes from the Nurse
August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month!
Below are some tips for keeping eyes healthy!
Healthy Vision Tips:
- Eat different fruits and veggies
- Exercise can prevent vision problems in the future
- If your vision changes or you are having trouble seeing things at home or school – tell a parent, the school nurse, or your teacher
- If you have glasses – wear them – believe me, you look super cool!
- Wash your hands before touching your face
- Use protective eyewear to prevent injuries when you’re participating in sports, helping mow the lawn, or performing a fun experiment in class
- Wear sunglasses – chose sunglasses that protect from UVA and UVB radiation and do not look directly at the sun
- Take a break from screens, remember the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
- Say no to smoking – it can cause serious vision problems
- Talk about eye health with your family and get to know if anyone in your family has vision/eye problems
First Aid Tips for Eye Care
- If you get dust or sand in your eyes – do not rub them! Wash them out with water
- If an object hits you in the eye – put a cold compress on your eye for 15 minutes to help relieve swelling and pain. If pain/swelling continues, ask an adult to take you to see the doctor.
- If any chemical gets in your eye – wash your eye with water for at least 10 minutes and ask an adult to take you to the doctor immediately
- If an object (like a pencil) gets stuck in your eye – it is very serious! Do not pull it out. Have an adult put a loose bandage on your eye and do not put pressure on the object. Have an adult take you to the doctor immediately!
