  • Closure Due to Inclement Weather

    The following procedures will be used in case of delayed starts and early dismissals due to weather:
    1. Listen for the notice that Carbon Lehigh IU #21 has delayed transportation. You will also need to make sure that the IU is not
    just delayed in one county. If we delay in Carbon County only, it will state “Carbon County Only.”
    2. If Carbon Lehigh IU #21 is not listed but your child’s school district is delayed then CLIU transportation will follow that school districts delay.
    3. If the district that you live in is delayed but the school district that your child attends is not delayed, the CLIU will follow your home district’s delay. This is for the child’s safety.
    4. If the school your child attends is dismissing early, the teacher will call you to let you know the dismissal time. It is the parent’s responsibility to monitor the student upon arrival.

  • Attendance & Tardy Policy

    Attendance Policy
    School attendance is a child’s right and a parent’s responsibility. State Attendance Regulations mandate that a written excuse be on file for each and every absence. When a student is absent from school, it is the parents guardians obligation to provide a written explanation as to the reason for the absence. If a note is not received within three school days, the absence will be reported to the home school district as illegal and/or unexcused. If you are absent, and do not bring in an excuse within 3 days of returning to school, your parent/guardian will be contacted. After 10 cumulative days absent, a note from a physician/court will be required or the day will be recorded as illegal and/or unexcused. Partial credit for missed work due to illegal absences will be determined by classroom team.
    Tardy Policy
    Parents need to sign the student into the building and submit late note. Students arriving later will be required to bring their own lunches or call classroom before 8:15 a.m.

  • Bullying Prevention

    Bullying is not permitted at CLIU. Bullying is defined as a low-level form of violence that is inflicted repeatedly on another, usually a weaker student. Bullying may consist of verbal remarks or gestures that are meant to intimidate and gain power over a victim and can include threats of bodily harm, weapon possession, extortion, civil rights violations, gang activity, and behaviors up to and including assault and battery, threat of attempted murder, and murder. Sexual harassment is also a form of bullying. Staff reserves the right to place a student on a major restriction when a pattern of bullying behavior occurs during the school year.
