Dear Bronco Families,
I hope this message finds you well and preparing for a wonderful spring break beginning at 3:00pm on March 14 with students returning on Tuesday morning March 25th. As we close the 3rd marking period and begin the 4th we need to focus our efforts to the many upcoming state, district and school exams. One of the ways our families can help support this effort is to have discussions with your students on a few things. It's important to be in school and on time for all classes, provide a place and time home for studies, make sure dress code is followed and wear the student ID's and lanyards at all times. Our Single School Culture and our School Wide Positive Behavior Plan continue to make PBCHS one of the most successful high schools, and according to many "The Place to Be".
As special note to our families of seniors. We have met and will continue to meet with our seniors to update them on any requirements of graduation and the commencement ceremony. Please check our Edline website for all important information and updates. Also, please contact your school counselor for any assistance you may need. Thank you for assisting in making PBCHS, "The Place to Be". Your support and efforts are truly appreciated.
B. E. Mondy Jr.

TRAFFIC and STUDENT
Palm Beach Central High School is the second largest high school in the district with nearly 3,000 students. Amazingly, through the efforts of our dynamic faculty members and our supportive community, we have been able to keep a family and close community atmosphere, and perhaps the biggest disadvantage to our size is the traffic in the morning and afternoon. Many of our seniors have senior privilege 1st and 7th hour which helps reduce traffic, but we need your assistance. We request that you pull-up in front of the main office and band room to drop off students. Please do not drop off students in-front of or near the gymnasium. When this occurs, the net effect is that people drop off one car load at a time and this is extremely inefficient.
Secondly, we ask that you drop students off in approved locations and not in the middle of the street which creates an extremely dangerous situation for our students. Students should be using crosswalks and obeying traffic signals when crossing the street. Finally, we strive to be good neighbors with the surrounding housing developments. We ask you to be courteous of our neighborhoods joining our school. The use of housing development driveways and easements during arrival and dismissal is not allowed and is patrolled by the PBSO. Violators are subject to tickets.
Bus schedules will be posted online at: www.palmbeachschools.org/transportation
A Message to Students and Parents from the Superintendent Regarding Class Size
REMINDER * REMINDER
If your student is not returning to Palm Beach County Public or Charter School, you must formally withdraw your student at the end of the school year. Failure to properly withdraw your student or to advise the feeder high school of the intent to not attend can prevent your student from obtaining their drivers license.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Palm Beach Central at 561-304-1000.
