Building Principal

When people ask me how long I've been at Copenhagen Central School I am proud to say, "Since I was five." An unexpected retirement by a bus driver as I was entering high school prevented me from graduating from CCS. But, all except those four years of my education and career have been spent here. I believe in this little school. My mother and father are alumni of this school. My daughter is an alum of this school. I am honored and proud to be a staff member of this school.

C.C.S. Dress Code

Spring in the North Country seems to arrive in fits and starts. But yes, the first day of spring has officially come to pass. With that comes warmer weather and more outdoor activity. It might be a good time to take a few moments to review the school’s dress code and provide your sons and daughters with a gentle reminder of what attire is appropriate for school and what is not. Some items in their wardrobes may be perfectly acceptable at home or at a picnic, but those same items do not fit the dress code of a public school. Some clothes are highly fashionable and look beautiful when worn in the right settings, but are, unfortunately, not right for the conservative school setting.
