Dear Claremont Unified School District Families,

As we wave goodbye to the 2022-2023 academic year, it's time to commend and appreciate our students, staff, and families' concerted efforts, resilience, and commitment. We have navigated another challenging educational landscape together, and your flexibility and strength continue to shape the very essence of our school district.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge our Class of 2023 graduates. As these graduates step into the next chapter of their lives, we are filled with anticipation and excitement for them. Their potential is limitless, and their dreams are vast and varied. As they spread their wings, we are confident they will continue to grow, learn, and make their mark in the world. To the Class of 2023, we are excited to see what you will do next!

As we transition into summer, while our school sites enjoy a quieter atmosphere, please rest assured that our district office will be working tirelessly to ensure our campuses and classrooms are ready to welcome you back in August. From deep cleaning every classroom, updating essential software, and undertaking various annual projects, our dedication to educational excellence remains undiminished!

The 2023-2024 school year will commence on Wednesday, August 30, 2023. During the summer, if you need transcripts, work permits, registration or have any other needs, please contact the Student Services Department located in the district office.
