Clinton Elementary ARRIVAL TIME before school begins

The safety and security of our students is important to us at Clinton Elementary School. The certified staff necessary for supervision is available beginning at 8:15 a.m. Therefore, the earliest arrival/drop off time at Clinton Elementary School is 8:15 a.m.


Traffic Reminder

Because of safety reasons, traffic on Mill Street should be one way before and after school. All traffic should be westbound. For after school pickup, please line up along East Avenue until the buses have cleared. When lining up, please remember to respect the people that live along this street and their property! We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Thank you!!!!



ALL ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER changes need to be documented in the office for your student when they occur throughout the year. In case of any emergency we need to have accurate information to contact your child's parent/guardian.


Phoning in a Student Absence

If you know your child will be out of school, please call (847) 888-7045 anytime between 4:00 p.m. (the night before) and 8:30 a.m. (the day of the absence). You will hear an automated greeting announcing our school. At any time during the message you can press 1 on your phone and you will be transferred to our attendance line. Leave your child's name, the teacher, the date or dates of the absence, and the reason your child will not be in attendance. This will save you time and the inconvenience of trying to reach us during the busy morning rush. If calling during school hours, please contact the office by selecting 3 on the main menu.


Sending Money to School

When sending money to school, whether it be cash or check, please put in a sealed envelope marked with your childs name, grade and teacher. There is a lot of money that comes to school from over 500 children for various reasons-lunch money, book orders, field trips, fundraising, PTO events.
