District Communications

The Community Relations Specialist helps make sure parents and community members can easily access quality, useful and clear information about the school district.

We share information in many ways, including the district website, social media, email communication, weekly district-wide e-newsletters, hard copy newsletters, and through the local media.

District & School Communications

Sharing information helps us build trust with our community, measure our impact, celebrate successes and learn from our challenges. There are a number of ways you can stay informed!


Centerville City Schools uses ParentSquare for district and school communication. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using the email address and phone number on file in our student information system.


Updating Your Contact Information

Please review your contact information at the start of each school year when you update your child's Student Registration Forms. If your email address or phone number changes during the school year, please contact your child's school office or follow these instructions to update your contact information:

  1. Log into the Home Access Center.
  2. Click on the Registration icon.
  3. Scroll down to Contacts and click on the Edit button on the right side of the page.
  4. Save your changes in HAC. They will automatically update in ParentSquare overnight.

Note: You will only have access to edit your own contact information. Any other parents/guardians will have to log into their own account to edit information.

District/School Newsletters

Parents/guardians of Centerville students will automatically receive a weekly e-newsletter from the district, as well as electronic messages from your child's school and/or teachers.

Emergency Alerts

ParentSquare allows us to contact our school community within minutes. These time-sensitive messages, such as school closures, are sent via email, phone, text and/or app notifications.

Community Members

Members of the Centerville-Washington Township community are invited to join a variety of community groups on ParentSquare to receive information about district activities. Use the link below to see what groups are available.

Did You Know?

Throughout the year, Centerville Schools share #WednesdayWisdom facts about a variety of topics with the community.

Keep learning, every day!

September is Attendance Awareness Month! Daily attendance at school is critical to student success -- from kindergarten all the way through high school graduation. Students, staff, parents and community members are invited to take the pledge to help the children in your life show up to school every day ready to learn.

Graphic with information about school resource officers

Did you know five School Resource Officers work in our schools every day, thanks to a community partnership with the Centerville Police Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office?

We're excited to welcome our newest SRO, Deputy Grafton Bowersox, who joined our team this week! We are also grateful to Officers Brad Eshler, Tracy Sommers and Jason Stamm and Deputy Gary Fulwiler, who partner with us to create a safe learning environment, which in turn helps us meet the overall health and wellness needs of our students.

More than 40% of students in grades 6-8 choose to participate in band, chorus and orchestra electives at our three middle schools.

The enrollment process for band and orchestra begins at the end of fifth grade when music directors visit each of our elementary schools to demonstrate a variety of instruments. Families that are interested in pursuing band or orchestra in middle school are invited to attend an instrument fitting in the spring. Chorus sign-ups take place at the beginning of the school year.

We have hundreds of diverse opportunities for students to get involved at their schools!

During lunch periods on Sept. 6, students at Centerville High School had the chance to learn more about student-led clubs. Help your child find something to fit their unique interests, from athletics, performing arts, and visual arts to academic teams, service organizations, and more! Lists of available extracurricular activities can be found on each middle and high school website under the Athletics & Activities menu.

Distributing Information about Community Activities

As a service to the community, the district shares information about special events, camps, sports leagues and other activities with our families.

Centerville City Schools uses ParentSquare to distribute information to families. All parents/guardians and community member will have access to a group where they can find information about community activities. You can join this group here.

Information from community organizations will ONLY be distributed in electronic format through ParentSquare. Approved information will be shared with parents/guardians through the ParentSquare app each Wednesday during the school year (and on select dates during the summer) and will remain available to users once posted, both through the app and on the district website.

Community organizations wishing to share information with families in Centerville Schools must complete a Request to Distribute Information form at least three days prior to your requested post date.
