Hunter's Safety

The Clarksville Board of Education believes that the number one priority of our school is to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

With safety in mind, Mr. Reuter and Mr. Timmermans have had discussion with Steve Martin who is with Butler County Conservation. We believe that education in all situations should be a goal, and as such will be providing a hunters safety course as part of the 8th grade PE curriculum during second semester this year and in the future. There will also be a voluntary closed class for those in grades 9-12 who wish to participate that will be held in the evenings during the time between the winter and spring sports seasons.

Please understand that we do not believe that all students will be hunting, nor do we expect them to. The expectation is that through this all students will be exposed to firearm safety, and as such learn to respect and how to manage and control firearms. Whether it be for hunting purposes, or possibly for a young person to need to know how to handle them because a little one they may be babysitting finds a weapon and brings it to them, everyone may need to know how to responsibly handle a firearm at some point in their life. We would prefer that they learn it the proper way, and learn to respect firearms and their capabilities though proper training by qualified and well trained individuals who educate others for a living.

While we sincerely hope that all of our parents will allow their students to participate in the hunters safety course, we do also respect the fact that there may be parents who strongly object. With this in mind, a paper will be sent home as the course draws nearer that will allow a parent to opt out if they have a strong objection to their child being involved. Understand that no operable firearms will be present during the course nor will there be live ammunition present.

We believe that this educational opportunity will be very beneficial for the students of Clarksville, as we will continue to provide the best and most current opportunities for our students to be successful in life.

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

The Clarksville Community Schools administration and Board of Education would like to welcome everyone for the 2018-2019 school year.

As I begin my first full year as shared superintendent between Clarksville and North Butler, there have been some changes. We will welcome some new faces to the Clarksville Schools this fall, including PK-12 Principal Keith Reuter (pronounced writer). Mr. Reuter joins us after previously holding the Middle School Dean of Students position in Charles City. I look forward to the things that Mr. Reuter will bring to the staff, students and community of Clarksville.

We are also making some upgrades to the facilities. This includes making some updates to flooring in the locker rooms, gym lobby and restrooms. We are also looking into building a new crows nest/ concessions/ restroom area for the baseball and football fields which will include a significant upgrade over the current facility.

Clarksville Schools has also started an official CVSD twitter page (@CCSDIndians) and will be opening a District Wide Facebook account for the first time in the very near future. It is our goal to do the best that we can to ensure that we are communicating in the most effective ways possible to reach as many of our patrons as we can, in the most timely manner.

Please know that Mr. Saathoff, Mr. Reuter, and I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have to the best of our abilities and that I am more than happy to sit down and listen to concerns that anyone may have in regards to the school. Remember that I am in Clarksville two days a week so it is always best to check with someone beforehand to ensure that I am in the district.

Looking forward to a great year,

Joel Foster, Superintendent
