Student Welcome Letter
Sussex Central Student Welcome Letter
Dear Golden Knight,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your family to the 2019-2020 school year at Sussex Central High School!  While we have been eagerly preparing for the opening of school on Tuesday September 3, 2019, we hope that your summer has been restful and enjoyable.  


All students and parents can view your tentative class schedules via the Home Access Center on or after August 09, 2019.  Printed copies can be made available upon request to the main office.   Please review your courses and feel free to contact your guidance counselor with your questions.  All requests to change scheduled classes require documentation of parent permission.  Further, more information is posted to the Class of 2020, 21, 22, & 23 Schoology pages specific to members of each class.  We ask that all students review their schedules or bring them with you on the first day in order to know where to report for first period.  However, all students will receive an updated schedule in their first period class on the first day of school. 


Our school day will begin at 7:35 a.m. and will end at 2:30 p.m.  Student drop-off and bus dismissal will begin at 7:00 a.m.  Parents are reminded to use the northernmost entrance of the parking lot and drop off students on the sidewalk near the flagpole.  As students enter the building on September 3rd, all freshmen will report to the theater, sophomores to the cafeteria and juniors & seniors to the gymnasium.  10th, 11th, & 12th grade students will be released from these areas at 7:30 a.m. and will be expected to report immediately to their first period class on the first day of school.   Freshmen students will remain in the Theater at 7:30AM on the first day of school for our student policy presentation.  After the first day of school, students wishing to eat breakfast will report to the cafeteria at 7:30, while those students not choosing to eat breakfast will report to the gym.


 We invite all students & families to join us for our Open House on August 28, 2017 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  Please come out to meet the administrative team, our faculty, and to hear about the wonderful opportunities that await you here at Sussex Central High School.  The faculty & staff will be here to greet you, answer questions, and tell you about our academics, athletics, arts, and all the other student organizations & opportunities to get involved!  The presentation for freshman students and families will take place at 6:00 p.m. and the presentation for 10th-12th grade students and parents will take place at 6:00 p.m.   Further, the night of Open House will be students’ first chance to purchase a parking permit, for those who drive to school!
