Important Message from the Superintendent (5/5/2021)

Dear Clayton Family,

At approximately 12:00 PM today, a bomb threat was discovered in a High School bathroom. Upon the discovery of the note, law enforcement was contacted and students and staff were safely dismissed. Local law enforcement conducted a thorough search of the school building and property. I am happy to report that the threat was not credible and we have been given permission to return to normal operations. I would like to thank the Clayton Police Department and local sheriff departments for their quick and diligent response.

As always thank you for your support.
Clipper Strong!

Important Message from the Superintendent (4/27/2021)

Dear Clayton School Community: Earlier this morning, at approximately 9:15 a.m., out of an abundance of caution, Clayton High School/Middle School was placed on a lockdown by the Middle School administration. The call for the lockdown was due to a student threatening another student. The student had trespassed on school property and will be charged accordingly by the authorities. The student was escorted off campus, and no weapons were discovered. At no time were students in any immediate danger. I want to thank the quick response of the school administration and the Clayton Police Department. As part of our on-going process, we will continue to be vigilant in reviewing our safety protocol procedures. As always, thank you for your support.
