Dear Clayville Families,
Thank you for an enjoyable and memorable school year, despite the many unique challenges presented by Covid-19. Clayville students have excelled in many ways thanks to their supportive community. These achievements include academic studies, STEAM, teamwork, giving back to the community, and now virtual learning! On behalf of the Clayville staff, THANK YOU to our Clayville parents who truly became our teaching partners this year. Distance Learning would not have been possible or successful without your support.

Our PTO went above and beyond to ensure students were afforded rich experiences that extend beyond the school day. These enriching opportunities would also not be possible without our incredibly dedicated staff. Their devotion to our students inspires me daily. A final shout out to our students; thank you for your constant hard work and fun-loving personalities. You make us all proud to be Wildcats!
I realize we are ending the school year with much uncertainty and in a way none of us anticipated. I'm proud to say our community made the best of a challenging situation. Plans and guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year will be communicated with all families over the summer as more information becomes available. The School Re-Opening Task Force is under construction to address the community, safety, wellness, governance, instruction, school operations, and technology elements that we'll need to prepare for in planning. We appreciate your support and understanding.
Best wishes to our fifth graders moving on to middle school. We will miss you very much! I look forward to welcoming the rest of you back to a new and exciting academic school year. I hope you have a wonderful summer!
Mrs. Francis
