CP School Hours, Arrival & Dismissal Policies

School is in session 8:55am-3:20pm. Students may be dropped off between 8:45am and 8:55am. Please do not drop students off at school before 8:45am. Due to COVID restrictions we are not allowed to have children wait in the vestibule so students who are dropped off early will have to wait outside.

There is only one entrance and one exit to the parking lot and we must prioritize buses. We ask families to be patient and allow space for buses to leave the parking lot in the morning and afternoon.

CP Message from the Principal

Posted on January 8, 2021

Hello, Central Park Families,

I trust you have had a good start to the new year. I know we have seen some alarming images from our nation’s capital this past week. These events have been unsettling and have raised a lot of questions for our children. Teachers have talked openly about these current events with their students. These are challenging yet important conversations as our children will grow to be adults and future leaders. Differences is what makes us stronger if we are able to listen to understand.  

As you know we are transitioning once again with an option for students to return to school in person. Distance learning continues to remain a consistent option for all families.

If families want to transition to in person learning please contact the school office or your child’s teacher by the end of the day on MONDAY, JANUARY 11.
