Dear Clayton Community,

It is with great sadness that we inform you that our friend and colleague, Linda Richins, passed away last week.

Mrs. Richins served as the principal of Clayton Middle School for 9 years and retired last June after 35 years in education. She left a remarkable impact on Clayton as a leader who always focused on students, was innovative and proactive with school improvements, and loved education. Many of the programs that serve students so well here are the direct result of Linda’s advocacy for Clayton and most of the wonderful faculty were hired by Linda. She cared deeply for the Clayton community and worked tirelessly for the benefit of students. Her passing is a tremendous loss to those who knew and loved her.    


If your student knew Mrs. Richins and would like to talk to a counselor about her passing, please have him/her come to the office.


Mrs. Richins’ family has requested that in lieu of flowers, please donate to the Salt Lake Education Foundation.
