  • School Closings/Delays:

    As you may have heard, a large water main failed on the Large Avenue side of the Clairton Education Center, sending rushing water into the building.  Many of the facilities on the elementary level of the building have been affected and are in need of repair and restoration.

    Our team, including our School Board president and superintendent, met with the Pennsylvania American Water Company and Disaster Restoration Services this morning to survey the damage and begin the clean-up and repair process.  These agencies will be working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to return our building and classrooms to their previous condition.  We at Clairton will continue to work with them closely to resume in-person instruction as soon as possible.

    As it stands, our school will be closed and classes cancelled on Monday and Tuesday of this week.  Please note that our upcoming Open House event will be postponed as well.  We are asking all of our families to prepare for remote instruction for the immediate future.  To that end, we will be distributing devices on Tuesday, September 29th, to those elementary students and families that do not have them at home at this time.  

    We will be providing regular updates through our social media platforms, our website, phone dialer, and through email.  Please check them tomorrow for updates, especially with regard to the elementary device distribution and remote learning instructions.

    This year has been challenging for us all for a host of reasons.  Please know that we are committed to serving you and your family, and providing the best education possible to our students and children.  With your support, we can show the area what Clairton Strong is all about once again.  GO BEARS!!!

Dear Parents,

As of January 1, 2018, Allegheny County requires lead testing for all children in the county. Children entering Kindergarten this fall will need to show that they had two tests to measure his or her blood lead level.

The new regulations require blood lead testing for all children at around 9-12 months old and again at 24 months old. If your child did not have one or both of these tests, he or she should have a blood test as soon as possible.

Any written proof from your child’s doctor showing when the blood tests were done is acceptable. A blood level testing form is included that can be filled out by you and signed by the child’s doctor.

If your child does not have a doctor, does not have insurance, your insurance will not cover blood lead testing or your child needs to have blood testing done, the Ronald McDonald Van is in Clairton the first and third Mondays of each month. It is located in the Family Dollar parking lot from 10 am – 2 pm. Please call ahead to 412-352-1059 or 412-692-7777.

You can request an exemption to the blood testing requirement if you have a strong moral or religious objection to the test. (Form is included.)

A child will not be excluded from school if they have not had blood lead tests at age 9-12 months and at 24 months, or if there is no documentation of tests that have been performed. However, parents should have a “catch up” test as soon as possible.

As always, don’t hesitate to call the office if you have any questions.
