A Note from Mrs. Shostachuk 08/21/2022

Dear Central Road Families:

We did it! Even though it was short, our first week of school was filled with many emotions and excitement. It has been amazing having everyone back in our building working and learning together. Students and staff spent time establishing routines and creating warm, welcoming classroom learning communities. We look forward to our first, full week of school next week. We thank you all for your flexibility, patience, and partnership while trusting your wonderful child(ren) with us each day.

School Visitors

We love our school visitors! If you are coming into the building, please stop to check into our school office for assistance FIRST. If you are here to stay and volunteer, please bring a photo ID as well. All school visitors will receive a red visitor lanyard and sticker to wear. This is a visual reminder to all in our building that you have been welcomed in our school office. Please also kindly remain in the area you been designated to be in during your time at Central Road. Thank you for helping keep our building safe and secure during your stay with us. We appreciate all that you do for our school community.


Please note that bus/transportation routes are posted in Infinite Campus for parents to view. We are working hard with our transportation department to make any needed adjustments which can take 1-2 weeks to change. If you have an issue or question regarding transportation, please contact our school office so we can resolve the issue in a timely manner. Please also note that our busses require enough driving space to enter. Car drivers should allow our school busses the right of way when entering into our parking lot. Improving our accuracy will in turn improve our efficiency. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

NEW Wolfie Pledge

We updated our Wolfie Pledge and it has a fresh, new look! Please take a moment to peek at it. Our students have been learning it at school this past week. NEW Wolfie Pledge is HERE.

Breakfast and Lunch Information

Both breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students at Central Road School who would like to eat the food served each day. Students at CR are offered FREE breakfast and lunch daily as part of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program, funded by the federal government. NEW this year, each student has received a specific barcode (with a 6 digit number) to use when getting breakfast and/or lunch each day. Students in grade 3-6 are welcome to memorize their 6 digit number over time and will be able to punch it into the computer if needed. This 6 digit number will remain the same through grade 8. Students may bring a lunch from home if they prefer to do so as an option too.

School Safety and Security

A number of safety measures have been put in place (and more are planned for 2022-2023) including, but not limited to, a visitor management system, which checks the credentials of all visitors before allowing them to enter the school. Central Road has a secure vestibule, an automatic 911 and integrated intercom system in all classrooms to utilize in the event of an emergency, new interior and exterior door signage has been put in place to remind students and staff to keep doors closed at all times and not to allow anyone in except through the front door. Classroom doors will remain locked and closed this year when students are in school. Visitors and/or parents are not allowed on our school playground during school hours. We continue to also place a strong focus on mental health and have many resources in place for students to report concerns or seek help should they need additional support. If anyone hears something, sees something, please say something. We will not trade safety for convenience as we continue to provide a warm and welcoming learning environment for our students and staff. We greatly appreciate your support, understanding, and patience.

Thank You PTA!

A Note from our Crossing Guard-Mrs. Kathy Nordin

Welcome back! It’s been a great summer and I hope yours was too. Now it’s time to get back to work. Remember to please watch yourselves and please watch the cars since they have to get used to us being back to school just as much as we do! I look forward to seeing all of you. As much as we all love having the time off, there is something about coming back. Have a wonderful year and I wish you all A+s!!

Infinite Campus Parent Portal

Infinite Campus' Campus Parent is designed to provide parents real-time access to student information. The easy-to-use design displays what is currently happening in the classroom so you can understand, monitor, and participate in your child’s educational experience.

This portal also provides parents access to check for teacher placement and student schedules once their student is registered. District 15 has also used IC to gather parent survey responses. Make sure you have your account set up for the new school year! To learn how to set up your account, watch tutorials, or access a help center, please visit our website.

A Note from the Central Road Health Office

Thank you for submitting any needed medical paperwork to the Nurse's Office. Please see the following update regarding our plan as it relates to COVID protocols. Please kindly email me with any questions related to your child's health needs at school.
