Dear Clinton Families,
We are off to a great start to the school year. It has been wonderful having all of our Clinton scholars back with us as we “Blast off to a great year of learning!” We would also like to welcome all of our new students and families to Clinton Elementary. It truly is the greatest place to be!
Thank you to everyone for having your students to school on time each day. Remember, if your student is eating breakfast, they should arrive at 7:45 (no earlier). If they do not want to eat breakfast at school, they should arrive closer to 8:00. Remember to always use the crosswalks when coming to and from Clinton.
If you drive your child to school, Clinton Street turns into a one-way street going east. Please have your child wait in the car until the signal is given at 7:45. After the signal (wave from morning supervisors) students can walk to the front door and form a line. A morning supervisor will walk the line to breakfast.
As you know, it is important for students to be in school all day, every day. Please plan to schedule appointments outside of the school day, when possible. If for some reason you need to pick up your student early from school, sign in at the front desk and proceed to the office. At that time, your student will be notified to come and join you. This allows for maximum learning time.
Please follow the same traffic pattern when picking up students from school each day. It is important not to block the crosswalks when parking. Also, please refrain from pulling into the parking lot from Clinton Street.
Thank you for always being mindful of each student’s safety as you drop off and pick up your children each day.
Mark your calendars for our first family night. Family Math and Reading Night is Thursday, September 15 from 4:30 – 6:00. Look for more information about this fun, informational night as the date nears. Also, our first parent group meeting is Thursday, September 8. We plan to meet in Room 101D at 5:30. We would love to see you there.
Thanks again for helping us get our school year off to a smooth start. We are so fortunate to have great families that are supportive of our school and our students. We look forward to a fabulous school year with our Clinton Comets!
