Latest News



09/24/15: For the safety and security of our Clare students, we ask that drivers please use caution around the schools at all times. This is especially important during student drop-off (approximately 7:30-8:15 a.m.) and pick-up (approximately 3:00-3:30 p.m.). Crossing guards are located in front of Clare Primary School, at the intersection of Wheaton & McEwan, and at the intersection of State & Pine. Use caution in these areas and always yield for the crossing guards and students!
