Welcome to Independence Elementary School!
Welcome to Independence Elementary School! There's something special about IE ... it's our people! You make our community what it is. We love that you are a part of our culture, our story, and our future.
Dr. Ryan shares new information and updates related to the district's path back to fully reopening schools in this week's Superintendent's Report.
Clarkston Community Schools will return to face-to-face instruction for all students on Tuesday, January 19.
CHS teacher Katie French is an Amazon best-selling author in Young Adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy whose book, The Breeders, was a semi-finalist in the 2014 Kindle Book Awards.
Congratulations to CHS Drama Club Troupe 803 for their outstanding performance at the Michigan Thespian Festival, earning $658,500 total in scholarship dollars.
A new year is around the corner and the likelihood of our return to face-to-face instruction on January 19 is very strong.
We have seen more reported cases per 10,000 residents within our school district boundaries than any other school district in Oakland County for five consecutive weeks.
The dedication displayed by the Clarkston Community Schools Board of Education during the past several months is profound and inspiring to me as a school leader.
I am just as eager as you are to return to normalcy, and yet our reality as we experienced it prior to March 2020 simply does not exist today. We must look at the world around us in the light of day, accept what is, and make prudent decisions based on reliable information and expertise.
"This recognition represents a dedication to hard work, and a culmination of effort throughout my schooling career here in Clarkston."
