Supply Pick Up

We understand the shut-down of schools came quite suddenly and that many students may have left personal belongings in their classroom.  Beginning Monday, June 1, 2020, we would like to give families the opportunity to collect all student belongings by grade-level, based on the following schedule:

  • Grade 1 – Monday, June 1st –         9:00AM – 10:30AM
  • Grade 2 – Monday, June 1st –         1:00PM –   2:30PM
  • Grade 3 – Tuesday, June 2nd –       9:00AM – 10:30AM
  • Grade 4 – Tuesday, June 2nd –       1:00PM –   2:30PM
  • Grade 5 – Wednesday, June 3rd –   9:00AM – 10:30AM
  • Grade 6 – Wednesday, June 3rd –   1:00PM –   2:30PM

Due to specific Pennsylvania and CDC guidelines, we must follow certain protocols during this process.  PLEASE NOTE: We will follow a drive-thru format, with all individuals remaining in their vehicles.  Please pull up to the Elementary Cafeteria Lobby Doors and provide school staff with your child’s name, grade, and homeroom teacher.  School staff will then load your child’s belongings into your vehicle.

Also, If your child has any textbooks or school materials at home, we would appreciate you bringing them with you to return at this time.  

Finally, we understand that some families have medications in the nurse’s office that need to be returned. Mrs. Kelly Ryan, our school nurse, will be available at the cafeteria lobby entrance during the scheduled times for those families needing to retrieve medications.

Tornado Buddy Bag Program

The Mount Carmel Area School District continues to spearhead a fundraising campaign in an attempt to help fund the “Tornado Buddy Bag” program for the 2017-2018 school year. The program sends home bags of food, every weekend, to needy students and families.  Students qualify for free lunch and breakfast during school days, but often don’t have any or enough food for weekends.  Your generosity allows those students to have enough to eat throughout the weekend and be more prepared to be good learners every day of the week.  Find out more information and how you can help MCA students succeed.

Donations to help support the program can made made to the Mount Carmel Area Education Foundation.
