Centennial High School

CHS opened its doors in the fall of 2010 with only 750 students. Today we have over 2000 students and offer a wide range of classes designed to meet the needs of today's learners.

News From Mr. Holder

As we begin a new school year, I wanted to take a moment to welcome each of you back to Centennial High School for the 2021-2022 school year.

I know that each of you may have experienced something different, to use a simple term, the last year and a half when it comes to school. We are looking forward to having all of you back on campus and having teachers and students working together for your success.

It is my great hope that each and everyone of you have the chance to dive back into all the things that enable you to connect, participate and thrive in our school. I know I have seen a great number of students up here during the summer preparing and working toward their own personal greatness whether it be academic or extracurricular. I know I will see more and more of that once all of you are here.

With a new school year, I would like to encourage each and every student to find activities, sports, programs or clubs to join, if you have not already. These types of activities are vital to fostering a strong connection to Centennial High School and I know the benefit to you will be felt throughout your high school years.

As we transition into the new school year, I wanted give some reminders and make each of you aware of some changes that are happening that will help you as you prepare for this upcoming year.


  1. All students will park in the front parking lot during the school day (NO Exceptions). The back parking lot will be for staff only. Students who have extracurricular activities in the gyms, practice fields or indoor facility are to park in front and walk toward their designated practice facility. Beginning at 8:55 each morning, and throughout the day, the parking lots will be monitored to ensure vehicles are parked in the appropriate areas.
  2. Students who drive to school will be required to purchase a parking permit for their vehicle. It is $50 per year for the parking sticker. I am linking the parking permit form and portal to pay for parking permits. Permits can only be purchased online.
  3. Students will have two weeks to get a parking permit if they will be driving to school.
  4. 2021-2022 Student Parking Permit Form
  5. Parking Permit Payment Site
  6. Students should bring their completed Parking Permit Form and a printout of the online payment to room C111 to get their Parking Permit for their vehicle.


  1. If a student has a course which requires transport to another high school, they are encouraged to go straight to that campus and come straight back with no additional stops.


  1. Students are reminded that the campus is a closed campus and students are not to leave campus for lunch. Staff will be posted in order to help ensure students are not leaving campus for this purpose.
  2. For lunches, the nutritional department for our district has some very good options available for our students. Parents may bring meals for their students and drop them in the front office area. The students may then come to the front office to get those meals. NO MEAL DELIVERY SERVICES (DoorDash, Uber Eats, etc.) will be allowed to bring meals to campus for students. If a service happens to come onto campus, students will not be allowed to go outside to retrieve the order and the order cannot be delivered to the office. These services will be turned away.


  1. CHS Bell Schedule 2021-2022
  2. Doors will open at 8:00 am each morning for your student.


  1. Students who would like to request a schedule change will need to go to their house office and get a paper copy of the Schedule Change Request Form.
  2. The forms should be completed and signed by the deadline noted on the form, then turned in to their house office counselor.
  3. Change requests will be processed through the forms and not email.

The teachers and staff of Centennial High School are so excited to be able to welcome each of you back to the campus this year. The chance to meet, teach and collaborate with each of you to educate and prepare you for your futures makes each of us so happy.

Tardies Start Monday

Now that we have had 3 full days for students to find their classes and navigate the fastest route to their classes, we will start counting tardies on Monday. Being on time to class is important to the learning process. This also helps us ensure students are where they are supposed to be.

We have partnered with "Student Conductor" to track tardies. Here's how the process works.

If a student is tardy to class the teacher will tell them to go to one of the 6 tardy stations throughout the building (2 in C Wing, 2 in D Wing, 2 in E Wing). The student will enter their student ID number into the computer keypad or will scan their ID (once they have them). The printer will immediately print a pass to class. The pass will tell the student what number tardy they are on, what their consequence is (if any), and what consequence will result from the next tardy. The student will then return to class and present the pass to the teacher. It's that simple. The best part is that when a student enters their ID the parent gets an automated email with all the same information.

Tardies accumulate for all classes and start over each six weeks. Consequences are:

1st Tardy - Warning

2nd Tardy - Warning

3rd Tardy - Warning

4th Tardy - Warning

5th Tardy - Warning

6th Tardy - Warning

7th Tardy - Warning

8th Tardy - After School Detention

9th Tardy - After School Detention

10th Tardy (and any after) - In School Suspension

Student House Office Breakdown

To better manage the day to day operations at CHS, we are divided into House Offices based on student last name. Each house office has a Greek Alphabet name. See the specifics here or see info below.

Most of your contact will CHS will start with your student's house office. The House Secretary will be your contact for all attendance related information. When your student is not going to be at school, please contact (email or phone call) your House Secretary. This will eliminate any truancy related issues.

For all scheduling or social/emotional needs, you will want to contact your student's counselor.

For any discipline related needs or for most other concerns, you will want to contact your student's administrator.

We will all work as a team to help your student be successful and have a great experience while at CHS.

Student Drop Off/Pick Up Locations

We have seen that most pick ups are taking place in the front of the school (off Hurst Road) and that the back of the school (off Renfro/Cardinal Ridge) is not being utilized. You may find it more beneficial to use the entrance nearest the marquee, drive to the dead end at the school, turn left and pick your student up outside D Wing or E Wing. You will then be able to turn left at the Band Practice Field and circle back to the drive you entered on. Turn right and it will take you back to the light on Renfro and Cardinal Ridge.

This should save time.
