Where are Clay Lamberton's School Supply Lists?
School supply lists are available by grade level. If you cannot afford your child's supplies, please contact Carrie McCarthy, School Social Worker at 920-361-5458.

What do I do if my child will be absent from school?
If your child will be absent for any reason, please record their absence using the PickUp Patrol app or please call the school office by 8:05 am at 920-361-2442. Give your child's name and reason for the absence.

When a student is absent and the parent/guardian has not contacted our office, the office will contact the parent/guardian to ask the reason of the child's absence. Please contact our office so we are aware of your child's safety.

If your child is absent due to a medical appointment, please ask your doctor to give you a note indicating your child was at their office for an appointment. Their absence will then be coded correctly.

What do I do when I need to pick up my child before the end of the school day?
When a student leaves school between the hours of 7:50 a.m. and 3:15 p.m., the parent/guardian is highly encouraged to use the PickUp Patrol App the day first thing in the morning or contact the school to let them know you will come and pick up your child. Then you can come to the office and sign the child out of school. The student sign-out sheet is located inside Door 2. School personnel will call the student to the office. It's very important that all students are checked out through our office so our staff is aware of the whereabouts of all students at all times.

What do I do if I want to volunteer at the school?
Note: At this time we are not in need of any volunteers due to COVID-19.
