Student Handbook

This guide explains important expectations of scholars at our school.

Locker Policy

Lockers are used for the storage of books, clothing, school materials and other personal property. Use of the lockers to store or conceal any prohibited items shall result in the imposition of discipline, including potential expulsion, in accordance with the District’s policies (provided here).

Non-Discrimination Policy

CAPS Central has a strict non‑discrimination policy based on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity & expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, family/parental status, income, political beliefs, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity.

Wellness Policy

CAPS Central is committed to the optimal development of every student. Research shows that two components, good nutrition and physical activity before, during, and after the school day, are strongly correlated with positive student outcomes. View our full policy.

Privacy Policy

Because health insurance is so important to children’s well‑being, the law allows us to tell Medicaid and NJ FamilyCare that your children are eligible for free or reduced price meals, unless you tell us not to. If you do not wish us to share this information, please fill out the form in this section and return it to the school.
