Dear Central School Families,
It was wonderful to see so many of you yesterday at our Sneak Peek/Open House. It will be a wonderful year of learning and growing at Central School! We have a few changes in our routines that we would like to outline. Thank you in advance for your support!
Dismissal: We will be dismissing Pre-K PM students at 3:10. All other students that are being picked up or walking home will be dismissed at 3:15. They will come to the hot-top to meet their pick-up person at that time. Bus students will be dismissed between 3:20-3:30. As a staff, we have found that more and more students are being picked up routinely before the end of school and by the office. Our teachers use every minute of time in the classroom for instruction and it is extremely important for all students to stay until the 3:15 dismissal. We understand that traffic is sometimes an issue so please use the library parking lot when picking up. We also now have three busses that bring students to in-town locations. They stop at the Community Center, SOBOtique, and the Counting House. Please call the office or transportation for more information about these stops. If you come before 3:15, please wait at the hot top for your child to be dismissed. Thank you for your understanding and support!
Change of Plans: We have also noticed that we have been having more and more last minute phone calls with changes of dismissal plans throughout the day. Our number one priority is your child’s safety and making sure they have the correct dismissal plan. Please write a note and send it in with your child if your child’s plan is different for that day. If you have an unforeseen change, please call the office by noon so that the office staff can deliver a change of plan note. We will no longer be announcing the change of plans at the end of the day, so it is imperative that we have it in note form. Thank you again for your understanding!
Thank you so much as we make some changes for the new school year! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. We cannot wait to see your children on opening day!
