In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carlisle School is beginning a new chapter in education. Here are some highlights from our first week of Distance Learning at Carlisle School.
“With the fear and uncertainty surrounding us all, I am so thankful to Carlisle School for utilizing technology to provide my child with a way to connect and interact with her teachers and classmates. The smile on her face was priceless.” – Tami Sapp
“As a mother of four, I was initially stressed over the fact that I would have to teach multiple different grade levels in my house at one time. But, surprisingly, it has gone fairly smoothly so far. Carlisle has made this experience easy. My high school child has live online instruction with her teachers and peers, as well as independent work to complete on her own schedule. My 4th and 5th-grade children receive all their work through Google Classroom, which they self-complete and turn in electronically at the end of each day. They also have been meeting with their teachers and peers on Google Meet, which they both enjoy. My youngest, in 1st grade, receives her daily work through email to be completed each day. She has really enjoyed the teacher’s reading a new book on Facebook every morning. It’s a great way to stay connected to some familiar faces in this unusual circumstance. In addition to typical classroom assignments, we also have STEAM, art, and PE requirements. We have a lot of fun with them. Although this situation is not ideal, we are making it work to our best ability and are living a simple life, which might be just what we needed.” – Kim Banerjee
