Good morning. This is an important message for all A-C Central parents concerning Open Houses, early dismissal time the 1st week of school, and the continuation of sending SchoolReach messages.
Open House for the Middle & High School will be Monday, August 17th from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. Elementary Open House will be Tuesday, August 18th from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. Students should bring all of their school supplies that to open house. All current Pre-K and Elementary students that attend Open House will be given a coupon for a FREE ice cream cone or cup from The Creamery in Chandlerville. All 6th – 12th grade students will also be receiving their Classmate computers at Open House.
You will NOT be allowed to register students during either of the open houses. All students must be registered before the first day of school which is Wednesday, August 19th. We will dismiss 1 hour early the 19th – 21st. We have more early dismissals this year, so please be sure to check the school calendars that were given out at registration for those days.
Due to new FCC regulations, we will not be allowed to continue to send out SchoolReach messages until we have new documents filled out and signed by each parent specifically stating your agreement to receive calls from the school. This paperwork will go home with students the first week of school. You will NOT receive any further phone calls until the paperwork is filled out, signed and sent back to the office.
Please note that both school offices are closing today at Noon. Thank you very much and have a great weekend!

The practice schedule will change beginning on August 17th. Before participating in practice, each student must have a current physical (within the last 12 months) on file in the school office, or may bring a copy of the physical to the meeting.
Good evening. This is an important message for all A-C Central parents.
Tomorrow is our students’ last day of attendance. The ½ Day PK class will dismiss at their regular time of 11:00 AM. All other students will dismiss 1 hour early. The full day PK – 4th grade students will dismiss at 1:45/ 1:50 PM and the middle & high school students will dismiss at 2:11 PM. The buses will be running 1 hour earlier than usual.
Elementary students will be bringing their report cards and class lists home tomorrow. However; if you still owe school fees from this year or past years for your student, their report card and class list will NOT be given out until those fees are paid. Notices have gone home the last 2 weeks if you still owe fees. If you are unsure about your students’ fees, please contact Mrs. Martin.
Middle and High School report cards will be mailed out next week.
Thank you and have a great summer!
