ZAP is a program used at Central Middle School to offer students the opportunity to receive partial credit (instead of a zero) for homework or class work that is not turned in when it is due. It is very difficult for a student to recover academically from a zero given for an assignment that was not turned in on time. The ZAP program takes place during the students’ lunch shift. Students that are “ZAPped” are provided a prepared lunch from the CMS cafeteria. The ZAP meal meets all of the nutritional recommendations of the USDA National School Lunch Program. The bagged ZAP meal includes an entrée that is being offered on the serving line, fruit and vegetable, and milk. ZAP students do not go through the lunch line to allow more time to complete the missed work.
*Parents that do not wish for their children to participate in the ZAP program can notify their child’s first period teacher through written communication. Students who do not participate in the ZAP program will be given a zero for any assignments that are not completed by the due date.
Maroon drawstring gym bags are used to transport PE clothes to and from school on Mondays and Fridays. If you feel that your child’s PE clothes need to be laundered more often than that, they may be brought home and returned to school in clear plastic bags provided in the PE locker room. Students are allowed to go to the locker room after arriving at school to place their gym clothes in their locker.
