We are excited to share that our students are now able to use text messaging to reach out for help for themselves or friends at any time of day or night. Text-a-Tip allows students to find anonymous, immediate help if they are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, depression, difficult family situations, bullying, or any of the many challenges they face today. Text-A-Tip is staffed with local counselors provided by LEAD (Linking Efforts Against Drugs), a non-profit organization focused on promoting healthy family relationships and preventing alcohol and drug use and other risky behaviors by youth.

Concussion Information and Agreement to Participate
Central School offers two types of athletic opportunities. The first is through our interscholastic sports program. This program consists of formal school sponsored teams in soccer, basketball, volleyball, track and field and cross country. Central School also offers an intramural sports program that includes a variety of activities that meet before or after school. Our intramural sports program is open to all Central School students. We are asking that all families read the “Agreement to Participate” and have your child return page 5 to his or her advisor by September 5.
Within this “Agreement to Participate”, you will find general athletic participation information, Board policy information, as well as facts about concussion symptoms and prevention. This agreement also notes a mandated protocol that requires any student who exhibits signs and symptoms of a concussion be removed from participation or competition immediately. Any student athlete removed from participation or competition due to a possible concussion may not return to play until authorized by a physician or a certified trainer.
