Corron Mission Statement

Corron is a safe, warm and inviting community where all are valued and empowered. We celebrate growth. Clear evidence highlights the impact we have academically, socially and emotionally.

From the Principal

Corron families:

As we head into a week away from school, I want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving break. This is an opportunity for our students, parents, and staff members to step away and reset after the past few busy months. I hope that you are all able to take time to focus on the many things that you are grateful for in your lives. I know that I am beyond grateful for this amazing community that I am able to be a part of. Our students, staff and families bring me so much joy each day, even when things are challenging. Thank you for all that you do to make our Corron community a wonderful place to be!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Chris Balaskovits

E-Learning Plan and Emergency Days

The School Board has approved an E-Learning plan that gives the district the option to offer remote learning in place of emergency days. Currently, our last day of school is Tuesday, May 24, which is the week before Memorial Day. As we move into the winter months, we want to update you on the plan for how the district will manage emergency days and e-learning days.

  • If we experience inclement weather, the first three days will be “snow days” that will be made up at the end of the school year on May 25, 26, and 27 as needed.

  • Subsequent emergency days will be remote days so the last attendance day will still be before Memorial Day.

  • If there is a long stretch of inclement weather (blizzard, polar vortex, etc.), we may split the days into “snow days” and e-learning days so as to not have too many non-attendance days in a row.
