Central is a Title-I School. Parents of students in Title 1 schools have the right to know the status of their child’s teacher(s) in relation to being Highly Qualified.
Central's office hours are 7:00 am – 3:00 pm. No one is available to receive calls before or after this time. If you have an emergency after 3:00, please call the district's switchboard at 478-765-8711.
Parent Visitation Policy
State law requires that all persons visiting the school at any time and for any reason MUST report to the office to receive a visitors’ pass before entering a classroom. Visitors are required to show identification to the office staff. This is not to discourage visitation, but is a safety measure. Forgotten books, assignments, lunches, etc., may be left at the office for delivery to the classroom. If you desire to visit a classroom, we ask that you notify us 24 hours in advance, so that arrangements can be made with staff. All classroom visitors must be escorted by a school staff member.
