Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Day of Service, celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.! We accomplished such great work with our Klinger and Davis families, packing snack bags and grocery bags for the Farmers Market and writing cards, and making art projects for our friends at Ann's Choice.

Thank you all for being part of our Klinger family and we look forward to seeing you soon.


Martin Hayes and James Ford

Meetings, Visitors, Dropping off items

We are doing as much virtually as we possibly can and significantly limiting people entering our building in order to provide a safe and healthy environment for everyone. All meetings will continue to take place virtually. Visitors will not be allowed in the building. Please also limit dropping off items for students during the day. Thank you for your cooperation.

No student should be carrying medication unless they have permission to carry life-saving medication with them from their doctor and the school nurse. This means that students should not be carrying over-the-counter medications in their bag or locker. If your student requires over-the-counter medication, please have them take it prior to school.

Just a friendly reminder that students should take care in their appearance and hygiene each day. Adolescents are in a tricky transient phase, where their bodies and minds are growing every day. With that growth & development can come body odor.

Things as simple as brushing their teeth in the morning, showering or bathing each day and applying antiperspirant/deodorant can all help in managing body odor. Perhaps having an extra deodorant in their gym bag or locker so they can freshen up, or an extra change of clothes in case of a spill or accident will make the student feel more comfortable. Wearing clean, fresh clothes each day also helps - we know many kids have their favorite hoodie that may never get washed!

Also, students should not be sharing hats, brushes, & hair accessories. Head lice is a very common problem for school age children and can easily be transmitted by sharing these items. Anyone can get head lice - no matter how clean someone’s home or hair is. Sometimes dandruff can be mistaken for a louse Periodically check your child, and if you see any live lice or eggs, treat appropriately.

If your child has tested positive for Covid-19, please note the start date of symptoms. Positive students should remain home for 5 days from symptom onset and then may return to school and wear a mask days 6-10.

A parent/guardian should notify the attendance line that their student will be absent, and their planned return date.

Family Trips Scheduled During the School Year

Family Trips Scheduled During the School Year

Although the scheduling of family trips during the instructional year is not encouraged, the Centennial School Board recognizes that students may benefit educationally by accompanying their parent(s)/guardian(s) on trips. Principals are permitted to approve up to five (5) days for students. Any trip beyond five (5) days will need the approval of the Superintendent.

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) who are requesting approval for a family trip need to complete and submit the attached form to their building principal at least three (3) days before the trip.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your building principal.

Below you will find some details.

Please know you will still receive automated phone calls

on the days your child is absent from school.

Please use this email: KLAttendance@centennialsd.org

to report your child absent from Klinger.

E-Mailing Attendance Notes

  • Parents with children in Klinger may e-mail attendance notifications/notes to the following address: KLAttendance@centennialsd.org
  • E-mail notifications are encouraged on the morning of the absence day. However, e-mailed absence notes may be sent on the day following the absence.

  • When sending an absence notification please include the following information:

Chromebook Chargers

Please make sure students charge their Chromebooks when they get to 15%. Please do not wait until they get down to zero.

If they need a replacement charger, they can buy them from our tech department or go on Amazon.

Chromebook tip: Charge the Chromebook before your student goes to bed. A full battery will last your student all day.

Chromebook Guidelines

The following are general guidelines to care for your HP Chromebook.

Charging (This is the MOST Important!)

The Chromebook’s display is a sensitive component. If you drop your Chromebook,

slam the lid shut, and/or expose it to excessive pressure or weight, it may crack. Make sure

you don't have anything between the screen and keyboard as you close the case.

Don't place items on top of your Chromebook as the weight can cause damage to the

screen. Always keep magnetic devices away from your Chromebook.

Always close the Chromebook lid prior to moving it.
