Dear Parents, The end of the 2021-2022 school year is fast approaching. On March 14, 2022 the Claymont Board of Education made a decision to use the ESSER Funds for building upgrades. Their decision was aided through community surveys and public participation at a community forum meeting. The Board, along with their decision regarding the use of ESSER funds was decided to realign several grade levels for next school year, with this decision a few changes will occur for the end of the school year.
Next year realignment:
PS - Kdg. will be placed at the building on Eastport Ave.
Grades 1 -2 will be placed at the building on Trenton Ave.
Grades 3 - 5 will be placed at the Intermediate Building. D
ue to teachers and staff moving and needing time to pack their classroom belongings at the end of the school year, changes will be made. We will be very appreciative of any community member wishing to help move the staff.

The District thanks you for your continued support and cooperation.
