End of Summer

Clayton High School students return to class on August 13. Throughout the school year, students utilize the facility for physical education, athletic practice, and personal growth. As these programs occasionally require full access to various areas within The Center, please refer to the pool and gymnasium schedules for changes in availability. Parking during school days and some events may also be congested throughout the year. We will let you know in future alerts if any foreseen crowding should arise.
