Dear Centre School Families,
It’s hard to believe that the summer is winding down and the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year will be here in just a few weeks! I would like to inform you of some important information for the start of this school year. As you know, Centre School traditionally begins the school year with classroom orientation to give parents and students a chance to meet their new teachers and to allow families to visit each student’s new classroom together. Parents and guardians are invited to bring their children to Centre School for a brief visit between the hours of 12:30PM and 2:30PM on the orientation day, Monday, August 29. To give you and your child some specific time to meet and talk with the teacher we would suggest having families with the last names A-L drop in anytime between the hours of 12:30-1:30 and families with the last names M-Z drop in anytime between the hours of 1:30-2:30. Eagle Folders, our student handbook, the September Newsletter, the September menu, and the usual school emergency information forms and permission forms will be provided to each student’s teacher at orientation. Parents and guardians will have an opportunity to sign the necessary forms at orientation to help begin this new school year. Teachers will help prepare students for the first day of classes and they will orient them to where they will enter the building and line up for school entrance.
The first full day of classes will be on Tuesday, August 30. School hours are 8:30 AM until 2:55 PM each day. Teachers will be on the playground to greet students on their first day of classes. Buses will transport students to and from school beginning on their first day of classes. Class lists for grades kindergarten, grade one, and grade two will be posted on the front entrance door windows on Friday, August 26. Bus routes will be posted on our school web site and be available in the classrooms at orientation.
You are invited to contact the school if you have questions or concerns about Centre School. Centre School office hours are 7:30AM until 4:00PM. The school phone is 926-8706, voice mail is available after 4:00PM and you are welcome to check the Centre School web site (sau90.org/centre) for updated school information and current events. Please note that the school will be closed on Friday, Sept. 2 through Monday, Sept. 5 for the Labor Day holiday.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone real soon! Please know that we will also have information available from our Hampton PTA which meets on the third Tuesday of each month. See the list of upcoming events below.
Best Wishes for a great school year,
Timothy Lannan, Principal
