    4/2/2020: With Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-35, all K-12 school districts will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year for in-person instruction.  Please continue to check our website, FaceBook, and emails from principals/teachers related to instruction.  Schoolwork will begin the week of April 13th.

    Miscellaneous Items:

    - Principals are developing schedules for parents/guardians to pick up their child's things from classrooms/lockers.  We will likely bag and label items for you to limit school visitors and maintain safe social distancing.

    - Seniors - assignments in core classes will continue through May as normal.  For now, we will maintain May 31 for a planned graduation ceremony, but this could change.  It is our intent to honor your achievements, even if the ceremony needs to take place during the summer.

    - Incoming Kindergarteners - if you have a child heading to kindergarten next year, please email our staff at and we will mail you a packet with information.  We are currently working on digitizing these forms for your convenience.  Kindergarten round-up will be rescheduled, likely during the summer.

  • Current/former employees:
    Below is a waiver which would allow Clare Public Schools to request a refund for Social Security & Medicare taxes deducted from your payroll during the 2016-2018 calendar years on employee contributions to the retiree health care costs for MPSERs. Should you sign this waiver, you are allowing CPS to request the refund for you, and to distribute the refund to you should the courts determine those costs were NOT taxable (still active in the court system, no ruling either way as of today).
    If you choose to have the district claim these refunds for you, you need to sign this waiver and return it to the business office no later than 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. Forms will not be accepted after this time.

    You can return the waiver to the business office by the following methods:

    - Email to - you will receive an email confirmation if your waiver is received via email

    - Fax to 989-386-6055

    - Mail or drop off to 201 E. State St. in Clare, MI during regular business hours - Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.


    Former employees: this waiver and FAQ sheet was sent to your last known mailing address - if it is not received, please print the waiver and return to the business office by the deadline per the instructions above.

  • 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 February 2020 MVP -- Most Valuable Pioneer: Percy Moultrie - Custodian 
    Congratulations to Mr. Percy Moultrie, our Most Valuable Pioneer (MVP) for the month of February.

    Percy serves as a custodian for the district, and takes great care of our Primary School classrooms (one of the more challenging environments on the planet to clean). As the teaching staff would attest, Percy is thorough and reliable. Many of our substitutes have no idea what happens in Percy's area...he is as reliable as the day is long. If Percy were to be absent, most of us at CPS would fear the world had ended! Mr. Moultrie is also a flooring "guru" for us, and can set up the middle school gymnasium for games and activities faster than a speeding bullet. His work ethic and professionalism is beyond reproach.

    Thank you Percy, for helping to make Clare a great place to live and learn!
