School Closing Information

If weather forces us to alter our school day in the form of an early dismissal, late start, or cancellation, the methods below are the modes of communication the district will use to inform you of this decision.

IMPORTANT: The successful delivery of information is dependent upon accurate contact information obtained from school records. If your household and/or emergency contact information changes, please let your child's school office know as soon as possible.

  • The first notification you will receive about a school closure will come from our district's social media pages (Facebook and Instagram).
  • The Clinton School District will notify parents via text, email, app notification, and phone call. Go here to learn more about opting-in for text messages.
