Office of the

Building Principal

Nadine O'Shaughnessy

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

With the arrival of a new school year comes the fall season. As summer winds down, we will still have several beautiful, warm days. Please 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 when worn in the right settings, but are, unfortunately, not right for the conservative school setting. Thank you for your cooperation.
