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 – 3:00. 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.
Arrival to School
In an effort to protect the learning environment from constant interruptions, Tardy Sweeps will be conducted intermittently. Students found in the halls after the tardy bell rings will spend the remainder of the period in Tardy Detention. If the students have reached the appropriate Tardy threshold (5), they will be assigned to Saturday School. Failure to attend Saturday School will result in Out of School Suspension. Please encourage your child(ren) to get to each class on time. If this happens, they will experience only positive effects as a result.
