CPSD closure due to COVD-19

CPSD family,

Due to the unprecedented outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, and at the advice of the Governor, the Clinton Public School District has closed school for the week of March 16-20, 2020.

During this time, Clinton Public School’s number one priority is the safety and health of our students, faculty and staff.

The decision to close school was not made lightly, and parents are asked to use extreme caution regarding the health of their family.

We urge families not to engage in any new travel during this extended week in order to minimize the chances of contracting or spreading the disease.

Many families and students traveled to various places over spring break who potentially could have come in contact with the virus. Any new travel at this time would only increase these chances.

Due to the fluidity of this matter, the district is still focused on instruction. If this closure extends beyond the week of March 16-20, we will transition to an online and/or distance learning format.

Due to this closure, all afterschool activities as well as athletic events and practices have been either canceled or postponed.

If you or your child exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, shortness of breath or are feeling ill, we ask you to contact your local physician’s office. 

Moving forward, we will reassess our future plans at the end of this week. As new decisions are made, we will release that information as it becomes available.

We as a district appreciate your support and patience during this unprecedented time.

Sincerely,
Tim L. Martin, Ed.D., Superintendent
Clinton Public School District
