School Closing Policy
Central Christian School is located in the midst of the Coweta County Public School System. We abide by decisions made by Coweta County Schools regarding any closing of schools. We have found that if the Coweta County School System discovers that roads are dangerous to drive on throughout the county, then they are dangerous for our families driving to CCS as well. For that reason we encourage parents to listen to local radio and television stations for the Coweta County School’s decision. If they close, we close. If they delay, we delay.
Lost & Found
As a courtesy to parents and students, Central maintains a Lost and Found Department year round. We encourage all families to write their names on the inside of all clothing so it can be easily identifiable if any item becomes lost or misplaced during the year. Items include school uniform pieces, spirit or sports ware, and other items that may be labeled with a name. Clothing found in the halls, lunch room, chapel, classrooms or other places will be collected and put in the Lost and Found Department. If a student is looking for a particular item, they may come to the main office to see if the item was turned in. Items are held for a period of 45 days. Any items not claimed within the time period will be put in the annual Consignment Sale or donated to a local shelter.
