Last week the National School Lunch Program, through the US Department of Agriculture and the ISBE, announced that they have approved a waiver for all students to receive a free breakfast and a free lunch each day through the end of December. Beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020 Carmi-White County Schools will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program allowing all enrolled students, whether face-to-face or remote, to receive these meals during school days. Please keep in mind that the waiver does not eliminate any lunch/breakfast debt that is currently owed nor does it include any a la carte, extra milk, or extra food items outside of the standard meal. #BulldogPride

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO GET BACK TO SCHOOL! We would like to invite in-person students and one parent/guardian to our Jefferson Back-to-School celebration on Tuesday, August 18th from 5-6:30! Students can MEET THEIR TEACHER via ‘Drive-Through” format! Second grade parents can drive through 4th Street. Third grade parents can drive through the pick up/drop off alley. An administrator can also answer questions about safety precautions and/or other issues. Teachers will come to your car to meet you and your student. Please bring hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and tissues if you have them. Students should bring the rest of their supplies on the first day of school (please write the student’s name on their supplies). Building tours can be provided for those who request it! For those families who are not able to attend or do not feel comfortable, we hope to have a video out prior to the first day of student attendance.
VOLUNTEER & EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES - With the start of the school year approaching, the Carmi-White County Unit #5 School District is looking for individuals who would be interested and willing to help at each school building starting August 20th. The District is looking for individuals willing to volunteer with temperature checks on school buses and buildings as well as those interested in temporary substitute nurse aides who would be interested in working 3-5 hours daily to help with temperature checks and tracing. Anyone interested in either of these opportunities should contact building administrators as soon as possible.
Our NEW online registration opens TODAY! Please view the online registration directions prior to registering on our district website. Students can be enrolled via a registration link on our district's website, app, and Facebook pages. We encourage parents/guardians to register online, including payment. All classroom fees, lock & agenda fees, and Chromebook insurance fees have been combined to one nominal fee. For most buildings, this has resulted in a reduced registration fee for families. Since registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be solely online, staff will be available to assist with online registration and payment via cash or check, on Thursday, August 6th in each building from 9am to 7pm. While registering your student in person, masks or face coverings will be required, and social distancing guidelines will be followed. In addition to online registration, please remember to fill out the Return-to-School Survey to let us know if your child(ren) will be attending in-person, remotely, or have chosen another option if you have not done so already. As soon as these surveys have been completed, we will be able to assign classroom teachers & schedules.
