Day 1: What To Expect
In case you missed it, our first day of school is THURSDAY, August 17. The schedule is unlike any other day of the year, so here's what your student can expect:
  • As always, school begins at 8:00 a.m. Drop off and pick up are in the circle lot. Students can be dropped off any time after 7:00 a.m.
  • It’s a half day with early dismissal following our 11:20 All School Mass in the auditorium. You are welcome to join us for Mass. We anticipate that Mass will conclude by noon.
  • Lunch will not be served on this day. 
  • Students will not follow their class schedules on this day, they will pretty much travel with their classes.
  • We’ll get all devices connected to the Central Catholic Wi-Fi network so make sure your student brings the device he or she plans to use this year.
  • It’s picture day. Central Catholic has partnered with YNI Sports to capture portraits the first few days of school. Download the picture order form for students to turn in when their picture is taken.
  • Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior students wear school dress code attire. The dress code does not just apply to clothing. All students must be compliant with hair, facial hair and appearance or will be required to come in at a later date for a retake.
  • ATTENTION SENIOR PARENTS: Per tradition, the school requests Senior Boys wear uniform pants with a white button up collared shirt (we will provide a Central Catholic monogrammed tie to wear with the shirt).  The Senior Girls should arrive in uniform and will be provided a top.
Your Students Need Their E-mail Address
To Access Our WiFi  
Many of you have already asked for and received your student's e-mail address and password. Please make sure that they know this when coming to school on Thursday so they can get on our wifi. If you haven't yet requested this information, please e-mail or text me. We will also have the information available that day.
Skyward Family Access Information
If you are new and need to get connected to Skyward, our family access grade portal, please e-mail me . You can also gain access during Parents Night on August 23.
School Supplies List UPDATED

Our  class-specific list of supplies continues to be updated and several items have been added since last week so check it out once again.
We need parents to help our cafeteria staff serve lunch during the week. The time commitment is small,but the impact is large. If you are interested, please e-mail Xandra Lee for more information.

The SignUp Genius schedule for football concessions volunteers is set up and waiting for you to, well, SingUp. This is a great way to meet your Central Catholic Family and to have a great time supporting your school. Thank you in advance for helping out!

Hey, Who Turned Out The Lights?
Eclipse Update
As you know, there is a solar eclipse on Monday, August 21. Each teacher has been encouraged to make the eclipse a part of their lesson plan, but it is not mandatory. We will not be providing "eclipse glasses" for the students but, if you purchased them, your student is welcome to bring them and use them ONLY if the teacher allows. Please remind your students that they cannot view the eclipse safely without these special glasses. Here is additional safe viewing information from NASA.
