Hello and welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year. I am Mrs. Jessica Marsh, building principal at Claymont Intermediate School. After a summer full of renovations, I’m very excited to kick off the school year and welcome each of you to your Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade school year. Our building is ready to be filled with students, staff, laughter, growth, and achievement.
Our team has put together a strong foundation and looks forward to working with our students and families to create a Mustang Spirit that can’t be beat. This school year Claymont Intermediate School will focus on achieving our goals through targeted direct instruction. We also will focus on creating a culture that socially, emotionally and physically supports our students and meets their needs.
Attached you will find a map indicating pick-up and drop-off routines for the upcoming school year. Please know that the Bus Hub area will be closed to all pick-up and drop-off traffic. Bus routes will use both sides of the street, and student safety is my primary concern. Like last year, car lane traffic will enter from Spring Street or 4th Street, turning left onto Welch. As you leave the school, continue straight on Welch or turn right onto 3rd Street. Please provide grace as we fine-tune our routine, and remember that my number one priority is everyone’s safety.
Breakfast and lunch are available to students for a small fee. Breakfast will be $1.50 and lunch is $3.00. Free and/or reduced lunch applications via the link or on Claymont City Schools homepage. The Claymont Intermediate tardy bell will ring at 7:55 am, and the brown gym doors will be open for students to enter at 7:30 am. There will be no adult supervision until 7:30 due to meetings, training, and teacher collaboration. Class assignments will be available to students after families have completed their Student Registration/Back-to-School Forms. It is important to remember that we have transitioned to a new system and all families will need to “Register as a New User”.
I would like to formally invite students and their families to our Claymont Intermediate School Open House, scheduled for Tuesday, August 22 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Students are welcome to bring their supplies, meet their teacher, and tour the building. We will also confirm that families have updated and submitted their Back-to-School Forms.
I’m looking forward to welcoming each of our students on the morning of Thursday, August 24 for the First Day of School!
Mrs. Jessica Marsh
