Hello and Registration

Hello Clear Lake Families!

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Karyn Bayer and I am so excited to be your new principal at Clear Lake Elementary! I am originally from Oregon; born and raised in Salem. I started my teaching career as a bilingual 1st grade teacher in 1998. The majority of my career has been in bilingual and Dual Language classrooms ranging from grades K-5. After that, I spent four years as an Instructional Coach before becoming an Assistant Principal. For two years I served as the Assistant Principal at Nellie Muir Elementary prior to moving back to Alexandria, Virginia to be closer to some family members. I had the pleasure of working in two elementary schools while I was back east. However, I kept feeling the tug of the Pacific Northwest and decided to move back.

I am excited to begin this journey with you and your children. We will have registration on Thursday, August 8th from 12-7pm. If you haven’t had the chance to register your child, please feel free to stop by, introduce yourself and we can help you get registered.

All the best to my Clear Lake families!

  • Hello Karen!
    Is there a way for me to register my son from out of district without having to come in on Thursday? We have a family function we are attending out of town that day. I have already filled out the paper for the transfer. Thank you in advance and I look forward to meeting you in person soon!
