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:

In two short weeks, 2021 will be coming to a close. It has been a unique year for us all, with many changes and challenges. The one thing that has stayed constant is the sense of community we have here at Corron. I want to thank each and every one of you for your support of our staff over this past year. Your positive feedback and expressions of gratitude have had a huge impact on the work that we do with our students and families. One of my favorite times of the day is our arrival time - not just because I love to greet the students, but also because I enjoy my interactions with our families. It is definitely a bucket filler for me each day, and I know the rest of the staff feels the same way!

I hope that all of our Corron families are able to take time this holiday season to focus on spending quality time together with friends and family. Enjoy your time off, and stay healthy!

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.
