From the Principal
Next Tuesday is World Down Syndrome day. Our students in the Strive classrooms planned a full week celebration centered around this day. They want our community to celebrate all of the unique ways that we are each different and special. Students will be participating in a Spirit Week as part of our celebration.

STAR Half Day Workshop
Corron Community Showcase
In an attempt to build additional positive connections between Corron and our community, we’d like to provide students with additional learning experiences through a “Corron Community Showcase”. This will occur during lunch hours (11:00-1:00) beginning in January. We are looking for adult volunteers to present!
Some showcase ideas may include:
a special or hidden talent
a musical performance
a “how-to” lesson
teaching about your career
teaching about a culture or special holiday
The options are endless! Your creativity is welcome!
From 11:00-1:00 you would be presenting a 6-10 minute showcase that would be repeated for each grade level lunch. If you are interested, please fill out this form and someone will be in contact with you! If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Bedenbaugh @
email@example.com or 331-228-6900.

From the Health Office
The peak of the cold and flu season is upon us! Recently, the nurses in District 303 have been caring for a number of students experiencing fevers and other cold-like symptoms. We are also aware that some students are absent from school because they have been diagnosed with the flu and other respiratory illnesses, such as RSV. During the months of October through April, each school in District 303 tracks influenza activity in cooperation with the Kane County Health Department. We consult with their staff to determine whether influenza activity in a school warrants additional follow up and, at this time, no additional interventions are needed. Preventative measures remain the most effective way to reduce the spread of influenza and other viral illnesses.
Students who present to the Health Office with a fever and/or feeling poorly are sent home. To prevent widespread illness in school, we recommend that your child stay home from school if experiencing flu or cold symptoms. To decide whether or not to send your child to school, please consider the following guidelines:
CONSIDER KEEPING YOUR CHILD AT HOME for an extra day of rest and observation if he or she has any of the following symptoms:
Very stuffy or runny nose and/or cough
Mild sore throat (no fever, no known exposure to strep)
Mild stomach ache
DEFINITELY KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME for treatment and observation if he or she has any of these symptoms:
Fever (greater than 100 degrees)
Vomiting (even once)
General malaise or feelings of fatigue
Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough
Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose
TO HELP PREVENT THE FLU AND OTHER COLDS, teach your children good hygiene habits:
Wash hands frequently
Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth
Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, use a paper tissue, throw it away and then wash hands
Avoid close contact with people who are ill
Colds and viruses are the most contagious during the first 48 hours. A child who has a fever should remain at home until "fever free" and for a minimum of 24 hours. A child who has started antibiotics needs to be on medication for at least 24 hours before he/she is considered non-contagious and able to return to school. Keeping your ill child at home will minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom!
Thank you in advance for helping make this year at school as healthy as possible.
