Welcome to Central School



We are excited to share that our students are now able to use text messaging to reach out for help for themselves or friends at any time of day or night. Text-a-Tip allows students to find anonymous, immediate help if they are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, depression, difficult family situations, bullying, or any of the many challenges they face today. Text-A-Tip is staffed with local counselors provided by LEAD (Linking Efforts Against Drugs), a non-profit organization focused on promoting healthy family relationships and preventing alcohol and drug use and other risky behaviors by youth.

Service Animals

This school year, two service dogs will be supporting members of our Central School community. Each dog has undergone extensive training to meet the specific needs related to the student whom they support. Service dogs are recognized as an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Should you have any questions please contact Valerie Lamberti (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)), Director of Pupil Services.

Grades 6-8 Go-To-School Night

Dear Parents,

A reminder to join us for our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Go-To-School Night!

Thursday, September 15 at 6:30 p.m.

During this evening, you will visit each of your child’s classes, including lunch.  The evening will begin with Advisory at 6:30.  During advisory, you will meet your PTO representative and receive a schedule and a map of our school.  At 6:40, you will be dismissed to your child’s first period class.  Each period will last seven minutes allowing teachers to detail important elements of his or her program.  You will have a four-minute passing period, just like your son or daughter.

Please remember to visit all classes, and if you have trouble locating a room, feel free to ask any of our student leaders who will be positioned throughout the building.  Also, remember that parking will be limited so arrive early and carpool if possible.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, September 15.

Fifth Grade Go-To-School Night

Our fifth grade Go-To-School night is scheduled for September 8 from 6:30-7:30.  Please note that the structure of the evening has changed from past years.  This year, we will utilize an open house format, thus allowing you AND your child to visit our school anytime between 6:30 and 7:30.  When you arrive, please start in advisory classrooms.  After spending time in advisory classrooms, your child can take you on a tour of our school.  Your child’s advisor will distribute additional information as the date gets closer.
