Secondary Education: Middle Schools


Communication between school and home is an important responsibility that we share. As your child’s primary teacher, you are very important to the success of their educational experience. This student handbook has been designed to assist your child in managing and tracking responsibilities and progress this school year.

We ask that you review this book on a regular basis with your child throughout the year. Our expectations at Centerville Middle School and Landisville Middle School require that every student keep his/her handbook with them throughout the year. Students who lose this handbook will be expected to purchase a new one. Because we share a common goal, the education of youth, it is important that we support each other’s efforts on behalf of our students. Your support of this handbook and its appropriate use will ultimately be in the best interest of our students and serve to reinforce the school’s efforts.
