The Clive Learning Academy Back-to-School Night originally scheduled for 6 p.m. on Sept. 10, will now be held on Oct. 1 at the same time. Please contact our main office with any questions. We hope to see you there!
We want to make you aware that there will be NO SCHOOL on Thursday, April 23, and Friday, April 24, at Clive and Crestview Elementary schools. These are professional development days for our teachers.
The April 24 date was previously scheduled and is part of our original district school year calendar. April 24 is a professional development day for all schools in our district. However, the Thursday, April 23, no-school day is new and is ONLY for Crestview and Clive Elementary schools. All other schools will be in session on April 23.
Clive and Crestview are adding the April 23 no-school day so that our classroom teachers can participate in a two-day New Tech Network training as we prepare to implement this model of instruction next year. The training is only available to us on these dates and is essential to preparing our teachers for next year. Please know that we will not have to make up this day at the end of the school year, and the last day of school will remain June 3.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
