  • backpack e-Communications
    Central Dauphin School District is implementing a new program to help improve your ability to get timely communication from our school and various community groups. We feel e-Communications will provide a better way to reach out to our parents and students while reducing the amount of paper sent home. Some information may continue to come home in paper form. Copies of all information on the website will also be stored in school offices. However, we are looking to move the vast majority of the information that goes home to our web site. We recognize that some parents do not have the opportunity to reliably use our web site on a regular basis. For those families, Central Dauphin will make paper copies of relevant flyers available to your child on a weekly basis. To get paper copies, you simply need to contact the school office. A packet of papers will be gathered each week for your child to pick up at the office. We thank you for your cooperation with this new initiative.
    Please click on the "e-Communications" link at the top of the page for important information. We are in the process of building the e-Communications page, so please check back frequently for updates.
