Welcome to Central Middle School!

Drop-off Reminders:

A few weeks ago we asked parents dropping-off students along Cedar Street to pull over at a safe location (NOT in a red zone or in the middle of the street) and have students get out and walk the rest of the way to school, please remind your students to cross at a guarded crosswalk if needed. While we have seen some improvement, we are still seeing traffic build up unnecessarily.

With everyone doing their part to help by having more students walk that last stretch to campus, we can accomplish 4 things:

  1. Prevent unnecessary idling, which produces harmful air toxins that can linger around our school. Many studies have found higher levels of air toxins around schools during pick-up and drop-off times. You can learn more on the EPA’s website.

  2. Speed up traffic, which will let students to get to class on time, let you get on with your day faster.

  3. Improve safety for students who walk and bike to school. Too many vehicles waiting to pull into the drop-off zone limits visibility for drivers and frequently delayed drivers accelerate more quickly after their path clears.

  4. Make your day a little brighter. Studies show that people who drive to work get more frustrated than people who walk, bike, carpool or take public transit to work.

If you feel strongly about dropping off your student in the drop-off zone, please consider arriving early or joining a carpool by going to www.schoolpool.511.org .

Thank you for helping us maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students!

The start and end times of school are the following:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – 8:25am – 3pm

Wednesday & Minimum Days: 8:25am – 1pm

The 2015-2016 year is going to be a year of interesting change as we move into our new building, continue to fully implement 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!
