Notifications and Media Messages for FID

There are two options the District may choose to follow a school closing.

1. Flexible Instruction Day (FID): Schools are closed and students complete assigned work remotely.

The following message will be sent through the District’s notification system alerting families of a potential FID.

Potential Flexible Instruction Day (FID) Tomorrow: The weather forecast leading into tomorrow may result in conditions unsafe for travel. You will be notified IF school buildings are closed tomorrow. If the Carlisle Area School District decides to close buildings tomorrow, a Flexible Instruction Day (FID) will be in effect.  If you receive an announcement that school buildings are closed, information regarding FID activities will be available from teachers OR posted on the teachers’ website ( -> School Directory) by tomorrow morning.

If school is then cancelled, an additional message will be sent in reference to Buildings Closed and FID in Effect. 

2. There may still be instances when the District will close and not use a FID. The notification message will be the same as in the past, noting that School is Closed. We will then use a scheduled make-up day as listed on the District Calendar.
