Welcome Message from Principal Tom Domer:

Dear Central Middle School Families,

I hope every family had a wonderful summer vacation and that you have all come back well rested and ready to learn and grow.
CMS has seen a tremendous amount of change over the past few years.  As we work towards growing into our evolving 6th-8th school and welcoming our 4th-5th grade Arroyo Eagles to our campus, new changes are afoot. Central has an updated bell schedule and an array of diverse course offerings for our students. I know I speak for the entire Central Staff in saying that we are looking forward to yet another great year ahead of us.

The 2016 – 2017 school year will see us moving ever closer to full implementation of the SCSD Strategic Plan and finish training our teachers in Project and Problem Based Learning (PBL). Our teachers are ready to teach and learn with the great students of San Carlos!

With the opening of the Arroyo School, we have an additional group of 4th grade students joining our school campus. We have staggered start times, but please note that for the 2016-2017 will see an additional 150 students arriving and departing from school.  Students are welcome to use either entrance to get to school, however the Arroyo Street entrances will enter into the Arroyo school while the Cedar Street entrances will continue to enter into Central. Guardians and visitors coming to Central should enter the school office on Cedar Street. Foot, bike, skateboard, or scooter traffic is NOT allowed at any time in the motor vehicle drop- off zone, and please do not block crosswalks or neighborhood driveways while dropping off or picking up your student.

You may be wondering which route is best for your child to walk to school. If you are coming from the northern side of campus (San Carlos Ave.): Walk on the “school”
side of Cedar. There is an entrance onto campus in between the new buildings. If you are coming from the eastern (Chestnut), southern (Brittan), or western (Cordilleras) side of campus, make your way to the intersection of Arroyo and Cedar. There will be a crossing guard there in the mornings and afternoons. All students should cross to end up on the “school” side of Cedar. Once there, continue down Cedar and use the sidewalk closest to the blacktop when arriving on campus.

Please use extra caution when driving near campus while our families and students become accustomed to the new traffic patterns and the addition of the new 4-5 school.

Thank you,
Tom Domer, Principal
