The building located at 920 W. Gary Blvd., formerly occupied by A-Ok Lock and Key is going through major renovations. 3JM Roofing owner, Juan Martinez, purchased the building and is renovating it to be a business rental.

After pushing back the first day of school to Aug. 20, the district has also decided to extend the enrollment deadline for its all-virtual learning option to Wednesday, Aug. 12. Melissa Knabe, Director of Secondary Curriculum & Instruction at Clinton Public Schools, said the fall semester of the virtual learning option is going to look very different than what students previously experienced.
