Important Bus Information
There is an important change we are making concerning high school and middle school bus drop off and parent drop off points in the morning only. For the safety of all, it is important to separate the drop off points if possible. In the past there have been instances in which parents have had to drive between buses in order to drop off students. To alleviate these safety concerns the buses will be dropping off all students behind the building. All parent drop-offs will be at the main entrance of the high school. Parents will have the entire front circle and will not have to fight bus traffic. The only change for parents is that you will no longer be able to drop off your student at the south entrance door to the high school.
Central Local Schools, in partnership with the community, will provide an appropriate environment for each student to realize his/her fullest potential as a life-long learner in a global society.
To Build on our tradition of Excellence together, through Exceptional Academic Opportunities, Staff, and Facilities.
