We are planning to start school late 9 times in the 2nd semester of this 2017/2018 school year.  Here at Central Middle School we are committed to providing quality STEM centered education including school wide STEM challenges, in class STEM focused learning and a Design Thinking class for every student.

The dates being considered for late start include:  1/17/2018, 1/31/2018, 2/14/2018, 2/28/2018, 3/21/2018, 4/4/2018, 4/18/2018, 5/2/2018, and 5/16/2018.

‌‌On these dates the buses will arrive at AM pickup spots approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes later than normal.  Transportation is working out exact pick up times and these will   be provided to parents during 2nd quarter.  Students who are dropped off at school will need to be dropped off between 9:30am and 9:40am.

In order to answer questions and to hear from parents concerning our plan for a late start on some Wednesdays 2nd semester we are holding informational meetings for parents at Central Middle School on the following dates and times:   Tuesday December 5th at 8am, 3pm, 4pm and 5pm.  These multiple times are designed to provide parents the ability to access the school more easily.  

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mr. Roylance, the principal at CMSS at 742-5115 by phone or by email.
