Dear Clayton Parents and Guardians,
Although a peculiar start to a new school year, it is going to be a great year! My name is Dallin Miller and I am the principal of Clayton Middle School for the next school year. Please call me Dallin or Mr. Dallin! I am excited and eager to get school started and support students and community members through our remote learning model. Clayton teachers have been working throughout the summer to update their teaching models from in-person to remote learning. Student learning will take place online/Zoom classes and through tutorials, videos, independent practice through Canvas. Our goal is to create an online school that will easily adapt when we come back to the building. We are creating schedules that will be easy to transition from online to a hybrid model. Students will have access to their teachers, counselors and administrators like they would if they were in the building. We will continue to recognize those who show great growth in academics and praise those with positivity and agility.
Clayton is committed to preparing your students for high school and beyond. We will meet individual needs using the great resources we have at the school. A focus on social and emotional learning will also be a priority during the school day. We are also adapting to the needs of students that need a more equitable education. During the summer and upcoming months, staff members are revising systems and policies that have been inequitable when it comes to race, gender, and other forms of biases occurring to specific groups. We will continue the work of identifying racial inequities within the classroom, school, and community, and create a more responsive system that supports our minority students and families. Clayton is a welcoming school and community and always has been. We look forward to making these improvements over time. One theme for the school year is teaching students that your voice matters. Teachers and students will discuss what this means in a variety of settings.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to ensure your students have access to the best education possible at this unprecedented time. We encourage you to check the SLCSD webpage daily. Please feel free to contact us via e-mail with any questions or concerns. For now, email is the quickest way to communicate with staff members.
