Corron Mission Statement
From the Principal
As the year winds down, I will be sending out communications regarding end of year procedures. Please be sure to be on the lookout for these emails
Early next week, I will be sending information regarding our district-wide student materials pick-up. There will be specific directions that align with social distancing regulations. I will also be sharing plans for our Corron Virtual Field Day that is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19th. We can’t wait!!
Today we finished our “One Book, One School” virtual event for A Boy Called Bat. We hope your family was able to enjoy this story together. I will be sending out a short survey to collect information about whether families participated and if they would be interested in doing another one. We can definitely continue these books throughout the summer if families are interested.
I know many students are losing steam in regards to engaging in their school work. If your child needs a pep talk to make it through these last two weeks, please reach out to me via email and I would be happy to send them a personal message.
Happy Mothers Day to all of our Corron moms!! Enjoy your special day!

Parents whose children have medications/medical supplies still in the school health office will be able to retrieve these items from Corron Elementary School at the dates/times listed below.
Tuesday May 12 - 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Wednesday May 13 - 1:00-3:00 PM
Those with medications still in the health office will be contacted via email by Monday, May 11th. If you are unsure if your child has medication/supplies still in the building, please contact the Certified School Nurse, Anne McCann, at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm.
Medication Retrieval Process:
Parents will pull car up in front of the front doors and call the health office at 331-228-6906 to let the nurse know they are in front of the building. A nurse wearing a mask and gloves will then come out to place medications that are in a ziplock bag inside your vehicle. This process will work just like a grocery store pick up.
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 in now open online
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 has moved to an online format that has opened on April 27. In years past, parents completed the necessary paperwork in paper format. This year, all acknowledgments and authorizations are contained in a single electronic, online registration form that will be easily accessible from most electronic devices (computer, Chromebook, and Smartphones). D303 Parent Guide to Online Registration
Beginning April 27, parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form using their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials, select individual students, and complete their registration. The form will be located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website.
Registration fees for elementary and middle school will be available in Pushcoin beginning April 27, and billed to reflect the early bird discount of $10.00 if paid by May 22. High School fees will be available in June. For families who may qualify for a fee waiver, and are not directly certified by the state, a 2020-2021 district fee waiver application will be available on the District 303 website in July, accessible from the Parent/Community menu.
Please pass this information on to newer families in our Corron community.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING HEALTH REQUIREMENTS FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR
Currently, the State of Illinois has not issued any information regarding changes in the school health requirements or their due dates for the upcoming school year. St. Charles CUSD 303 will continue to monitor and report any changes as they become available from the Illinois Dept. of Public Health/State of Illinois. We recognize that medical, optical, and dental appointments may not be readily available and that specific medical conditions may affect the scheduling of appointments. We recommend that families work with their primary care providers as social distancing practices evolve.
Week 5 SEL
This week’s SEL lesson focuses on relationship skills and their development through communicating effectively. Make sure to check out the information and resources highlighted for parents. This weeks competency is:
Relationship skills: The ability to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships with diverse individuals and groups. This includes communicating clearly, listening actively, cooperating, resisting inappropriate social pressure, negotiating conflict constructively, and seeking and offering help when needed.
The challenges and uncertainty facing families and children are impactful on overall mental health and well being. We are hopeful the resources shared will be a support to parents/guardians and children. If you have any questions on the information provided or are seeking additional support for yourself or child, please contact Patti Palagi, Director Instructional Interventions (email@example.com or 331-228-6457).

Pandemic EBT Application Available
The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) launched the Pandemic EBT application for families on May 1 at https://abe.illinois.gov/abe/access/. P-EBT is a new special benefit that can help families buy food for their school age children who would normally receive National School Lunch Program (NSLP) free or reduced-priced meals when schools are in session. All families with school age children who attend schools approved for Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) are eligible for the benefits as they receive NSLP meals at no charge.
Families that currently receive SNAP benefits do not need to apply for P-EBT benefits. These additional P-EBT benefits will be loaded into Illinois LINK EBT accounts along with regular SNAP benefits. Families who do not currently receive SNAP benefits but do have children who receive NSLP free or reduced-priced meals will need to apply directly with IDHS. The fastest way for families to receive benefits is to complete the application for P-EBT available online (Click “Apply for Benefits” at the link.) A paper application in English and Spanish is also available and can be submitted by email to DHS.FCS.PEBT@illinois.gov. IDHS created a flyer to help families with the application process. We are asking NSLP sponsors to share this flyer with their families.
ISBE is working in partnership with IDHS to ensure that this validation is available for all NSLP sponsors, both public and non-public. Thank you to all the schools that participate in the NSLP for submitting data by the April 17 deadline. We are asking that you please continue to verify that count, so that all families who are eligible can access the additional financial support provided by P-EBT. Instructions for this crucial verification can be found online.
If NSLP sponsors need assistance with the data submission/update, please email the ISBE Nutrition Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. If families need technical assistance with the application, please direct them to email IDHS at DHS.FCS.PEBT@illinois.gov.
