Clinton Elementary School

The Bear Facts!

May 21, 2021

Dear Clinton Families,

Last week I sent a letter explaining that we went into a Code Yellow, or Shelter in Place, due to a woman on campus who was prohibited from being on Clinton property. She was quickly apprehended by the Maplewood Police Department. It is an active investigation. A huge thank you to the Maplewood Police Department for their response. Also, a huge thank you to our staff and students who quickly moved into the Code Yellow. A Code Yellow is something that we practice and allows instruction to continue. A Code Yellow also allows us to put restrictions in place within the school setting as needed. For example, we called a Code Yellow when the woman was noticed outside of the building. We modified the Code Yellow when she was apprehended, allowing movement within the building but not allowing classes outside. When the incident is finished, we release the Code Yellow or all the restrictions. I hope that this helps to give you a window into what a Code Yellow looks like.

Due to the nature of the incident, we will be having two security guards on campus for the remainder of the school year from Wisdom Protective Services, the same company that supplies security for our Secondary Schools. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out at Thank you for all of your support.

Until we are all together in person again, we remain #Clintonstrong

Fondly, Jennifer Connors, Principal & Zoila Correa, Assistant Principal

A Message from Mrs. Latimer

Hi families! As we finish our this school year strong, I am asking for your help finding and returning library books to school. As I tell the kids, you have done a great job keeping the books safe all year and now it is my turn. I sent emails to families with the titles, but you are welcome to see what books were checked out here You can select Clinton as your school and log in with the student Google account. As always, you can send me an email with any questions.
