Wellness Wednesday's Check and Connect with Our Families Here at Centennial

Check & Connect is a way for us to hear about what you are experiencing in real-time and provide you with up-to-date information about social, health, and government services. It is also a way to remind you of upcoming district and building events.


We know that calls during the day may make you think that we are calling about a concern with your child, which is why I want to inform you that any call from the number 614-365-5491 will be a check & connect call.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.


Thank you,


LaToya Williams
