Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more. If you want to receive text messages regarding Hickman County School closings and emergencies please follow the instructions below. Our new system requires you to opt in!

You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “yes” to our school’s short code number, 68453. You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge’*, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

The school day at Centerville Intermediate is from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.   For those students who are car riders, we ask that they arrive at school no earlier than 7:15 a.m.  Please do not leave students unattended in front of the school. Students arriving before 7:30 should report to the cafeteria and should remain in the cafeteria until the 7:30 bell.  Students arriving after 8:00 are considered tardy and must report to the office. Parents are required to sign the student in for the day.

Car riders will be dismissed beginning at 2:45.  Parents should form a line directly in front of the school and wait for students.  Please remain in your vehicle. If you need to enter the building, please do not park in the car rider line.  Bus students will begin dismissal at approximately 3:05. If you have not picked your student up when buses arrive, please do not enter this area.  Your child will meet you at the 4th grade wing end of the building (far side of the cafeteria). All students should be picked up no later than 3:15 p.m.

Attendance is a key factor in student achievement and academic success.  The official school day for students begins at 8:00 a.m. and continues until 3:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted on the board approved school calendar.  Students will be counted tardy if they arrive after 8:00 a.m. and leave prior to 2:45 p.m. Tardies add up and will eventually be counted as a whole day absent.

*Parent Note Guidelines:  8 days of parent notes, total, for the school year.
