A Note from the Principal

Hello Central Families,


Fall is here! It's hard to believe that it's October already! We are off to a great start at Central. We can't thank you enough for all of the support you have given us during this unique school year. Our students have settled in amazingly well. I'm really proud of all of them!


Parent drop-off and pick-up is running smoothly and we appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation! in the morning, it would be helpful if your child was ready with their backpack, mask, and unbuckled, ready to get out of the car to keep our line running smoothly. Also, great job on using our car signs. It certainly helps with our process. Kudos to all of our families!


As a reminder for student safety, please do not drop off your student and allow them to walk through the parking lot by themselves. Oftentimes, they are not tall enough for people to see them through their rearview mirrors. Also, they are children and aren't always looking for the dangers around them. Please help us keep your child safe by using our drop off lines or walking them all the way to our crosswalk.


Beginning Tuesday, October 6, students will be required to wear their masks throughout the school day, including while in their classrooms. One other note regarding masks - It is important that students have a clean mask each day. It is also a good idea to have a 'back up' mask in your child's backpack. If at any time throughout the day a mask is broken or becomes wet or too dirty, we have extra masks here at school for them. I will also add that I am so proud of how well the students are doing with wearing masks and being responsible with them.


Again, I sincerely appreciate all of your support this year! Even with its challenges, it has been a wonderful start to the year!


Respectfully,


Mrs. Kuzinski, Proud Principal

Positivity Project (P2)

Central is a partner school, which means all of our families get free access to awesome resources that reinforce the character traits and teaching we are doing at school. There is a character card that explains the character trait, a grade-appropriate video to show the character trait in action and some questions that are great conversation starters at home.
