A word from the Principal...

Hello Students and Parents!


The staff of Clear Fork Middle School is excited to be back in the building and they are ready to work with their students. Administration has been working on opening plans and how to implement all of the new guidelines to help keep our children safe while they are in the buildings. Teachers have been working on new lessons that will easily be integrated into Remote Learning. The maintenance team has been cleaning and setting up the building for students to return and social distance. Coaches have been holding practices since August 1st. But most importantly, everyone is excited to be working with students again, regardless if it is Face-to-Face or though Remote Learning.


I hope everyone is enjoying their last days of summer and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Mrs. Jennifer Klaus

How will attendance be taken?

Attendance is taken by completed assignments. Please note that watching and participating in lectures/group work/projects/etc. at the assigned time is part of the student's attendance.


Do I need to call the office if my child will be absent from school even if they will login from home?

Yes. If you child will not be at school and is signed up for face-to-face instruction, you will need to call the school. You can tell us if they are going to participate in remote learning then or if they are sick or have an appointment and cannot participate in remote learning that day.

Yes. If you child cannot participate in the lessons that day, we will need to know. It will be up to the child to make sure they hand in the make-up work once they can log back in.


Since masks are now mandated in the school, will my child be able to get a break from wearing the mask?

Per the opening plan, "** If social distancing is being adhered to in the classroom and with teacher permission, students may temporally remove masks/facial coverings for a break.
