School-Wide Announcement

The Clayton school administration, faculty, and staff are excited for the adventures which lay ahead for students next school year. We are excited to announce the implementation of Curriculum and Assessment school-wide the 2018-2019 school year. All students will participate in enriching lessons and activities founded in the six Performance Results which are the core of Curriculum and Assessment, often called "C&A". The Performance Results are: Self-Directed Learner, Quality Worker and Producer, Cooperative Group Participant and Leader, Effective Communicator, Complex Thinker and Problem Solver, and Contributor to the Community. As the implementation of C&A occurs this next school year, we will be learning and growing with students towards a school culture based upon the six Performance Results. Our talented faculty will collaboratively lead the C&A program adoption, adapting the Performance Results to enrich all programs and contents we already instruct. We anticipate great things for our Clayton Cougars this next school year! See you in August!

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.
