Resources for those in Need and 2020 Census

March 31, 2020

Dear Families:

We enjoyed recognition in this week’s METCO newsletter thanks to two great volunteers.

We also dropped off more supplies to Emerson thanks to our generous teachers.

Carlisle resident Lauree Eckler is coordinating a group called The Carlisle Neighborhood Response Team. This group of volunteers will shop for vulnerable Carlisle residents that do not have anyone else that can provide those services.  Please see the following link both if you need help or would like to volunteer.

Open Table is a local food pantry.  Their information is found here:

We continue to provide food at CCHS from 8:30 am-11 am every weekday.  For more information or to offer a financial donation, please use this link:

Given these difficult times, please know that you can reach out to the administrators and counselors.  We are working closely with a number of local agencies and are happy to make those connections for you.

On another note, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education asked that the schools share information about the 2020 census.  I am sharing that here and will have you note the educational activities that are also available.

Census invitations have been sent to all residences, and families can respond online in 13 languages. Everyone who does not respond online will eventually receive a paper form in English and Spanish from the Census Bureau. (More information for parents is here.) In addition, online Statistics in Schools educational resources are available to use with students at home. An accurate count is vital in order to help our schools get needed resources.
