Centennial High School

Plan for the 2020-21 School Term

Big picture

Greetings from Mr. Campbell

Greetings Centennial Family,


I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy. Much has changed since our last communication. As a follow up to the current return to school guidelines from the district, we are making some changes to our school procedures to provide a safer environment due to COVID. These procedures are subject to change based on the most recent guidance from the public health officials and the district. We will update families as necessary.


Thank you,


Keynun Campbell

INDIVIDUAL REMOTE LEARNING (IRL)

Fulton County Schools has created an Individual Remote Learning opportunity for students in grades 1-8 and a Full-time Fulton Virtual opportunity for students in grades 9-12.


Fulton County School's website outlines the process for new and returning students with parent resources. If additional support or access to a computer kiosk is needed, families should contact their local school.

Full-time Virtual (Grades 9-12)


  • Students participating in Full-time Fulton Virtual will remain enrolled in their current school with their secondary school/program listed as Full-time Fulton Virtual. Full-time Fulton Virtual will afford its students the ability to take a full-time virtual course load.

  • This is an online, semester-long option (August –December) provided by Fulton County Schools. However, students enrolled in this model may not have access to all classes, particularly elective classes, that may otherwise be offered at a traditional school.

    Full-time Fulton Virtual will not offer extracurricular activities, athletics or clubs. There will be virtual club offerings.

    Beginning on June 30 and ending July 22, families who are interested in enrolling students into Full-Time Fulton Virtual Learning should visit www.fultonschools.org/enrollment. For more information contact us via email:
