    Centennial Schools is conducting a referendum on Tuesday, November 6, with two ballot questions—an operational levy to maintain programs and services in our schools and a bond to help ensure safety for students and staff, update aging facilities and technology. You can learn more about the referendum and these two questions online.

    Bullying Tip Line

    The District strives to give its students the best academic experience and addresses their social and emotional needs.

    A dedicated phone line has been established for your school so families and students can report bullying incidents. Students and families can contact school administrators about bullying issues confidentially with no fear of retaliation or embarrassment that they might feel talking in person.

    Parents and students can leave a message regarding a bullying incident at 763.792.5096.


    This phone line is not a replacement for emergency services and will be monitored weekdays, during regular school hours.

    Talk with your child. They can do something to help if they witness (or experience) a bullying incident.

    The phone line is an enhancement of the District’s existing policies and procedures already in effect for anti-bullying efforts. The bullying prohibition policy #514 can be found online.  

    If you have questions, please contact Principal Tom Breuning.
