Striking a Balance – Spring is all about getting out and doing

Susan Swan's weekly column about community news and events in Clinton.

Spring Break

Friday, March 15 will be the last day of school for a while as the students and staff enjoy the Spring Break. School will resume on Monday, March 25.

If you are driving anywhere during the Spring Break take a little extra time and plan to arrive safely to your destination. There will likely be extra traffic on the roads so take it easy out there.
