Clay County remains in the RED category on the ISDH’s COVID-19 Dashboard’s Color Code System. Clay County is witnessing an increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases throughout the county and also seeing an increase of hospitalizations related to the virus. With joint discussions between Clay County Health Officials and Clay Community Schools (CCS) Officials, CCS will extend school closures through December 4, 2020. Schools are scheduled to reopen on Monday, December 7, and schools will continue utilizing an eLearning platform until the buildings reopen. As a community, it is important to limit social gatherings, wear masks, and maintain social distancing, whenever possible, to help reduce community spread of the virus.
Welcome to Staunton Elementary School. We are excited to start the new school year and look forward to providing each child with a safe, secure, and respectful environment for learning. Our school consists of grades K-5 with an enrollment of 290 students. We have implemented the Positive Behavior Support program (PBIS) and encourage all students to be responsible, respectful, safe, and a learner. The staff at Staunton Elementary is dedicated to providing each child with the highest level of instruction to promote exceptional achievement and growth. In 2018 Staunton Elementary was named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education.
We appreciate the active support from our parents, volunteers, and school community.
