    2018-2019 MODIFIED
    Dear Pioneer Families:
    Spring is finally here, and hopefully it is a safe time to give you an update on our current make-up
    day/calendar situation. We have had twenty-one (21) snow days this school year due to weather
    and/or road conditions. The state forgives the first six (6) cancellations and the State Superintendent
    can approve a waiver for an additional three (3) days. Clare has been approved for the three (3)
    additional days, which means that at this point, we must plan to reschedule an additional 12 days of
    instruction. For your planning purposes, here are the current changes:
    •Friday, April 12th will now be a full day of instruction.
    •Friday, April 19th will now be a half day of instruction.
    •June 4th & 5th will now be full days of instruction.
    •June 6th through the 18th will be full days of instruction.
    •Wednesday, June 19th and Thursday, June 20th will be half days of instruction.
    (Thursday, June 20th will be the last day of instruction)
    The state legislature is scheduled to consider the forgiveness of additional time due to the declared
    State of Emergency, but it is not known at this time if any action will take place and at the earliest,
    nothing will be known until mid-April. This is a topic that has been discussed in Lansing for weeks now,
    and we are at a point where we need to move forward and plan for calendar adjustments...we will
    consider other adjustments if something changes at the state level.
    For those who wonder if we can add additional time to days to satisfy the requirements, the answer is
    “no.” The state sets both a days and hours requirement for schools and both must be met, so adding
    time to the school day is not an option afforded by law. We will keep you posted if additional changes
    take place.
    Thanks for your patience this winter, and thanks for making Clare a great place to live and learn!

  • MVP - Most Valuable Pioneer
    Each month while school is in session, we will recognize exemplary employees that make up our exceptional school system. 
    Announcing the March 2019 MVP(s) -- Most Valuable Pioneer(s): The Clare Public Schools Custodians!
    They are exceptional, dedicated folks who keep our buildings and facilities looking tip-top.
    Congratulations to Mr. Scott Lubs, Percy Moultrie, Bernie McNerney (not pictured), Don Perry, Tammy Teall, Lisa Wyse, Angela Cipolletti, Tom Robison, Renea Phillips, Deanna Snear, and Stacie Livermore. Though most of our facilities are well into their mid-life, these folks keep rooms/hallways/gymnasiums and much more clean, disinfected, and ready for students throughout the entire year. You know we have a very busy school district after school hours, and these folks also take care of event set-up, tear-down, and clean up ON TOP of their regular schedules.
    We wouldn't be who we are, or perform as well, without each of these folks making Clare a very special place to live and learn! Thank you, and Congratulations!
