Corron Mission Statement:
From the Principal:
Thank you to all of the parents who joined us or were able to phone in for a conference. This is such a valuable time to us as educators. It’s a time to connect with families, celebrate the progress students have made and set goals for future accomplishments. The time to sit down with parents ensures that we are able to honor their insights and concerns. Many parents ask for ideas about how they can support their child’s school goals, as well. While sometimes using time at home to practice skills is important, the most important things you can do to support your child is to read to them daily, talk to them about various topics, and just be present for them.
I was recently reading an article focused on mental health in young children. It cited research that claimed that chores play a vital role in children having a positive self-esteem as well as other added emotional benefits. According to the article, “Research indicates that those children who do have a set of chores have higher self-esteem, are more responsible, and are better able to deal with frustration and delay gratification, all of which contribute to greater success in school.” (The Center for Parenting Education)

From the Nurse:
Keep your child home from school when:
* Your child has a temperature of 100 degrees F or more within the past 24 hours. Children should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school and not taking fever reducing medication to control symptoms.
* Your child has been diagnosed with a bacterial infection (Strep) your child MUST have 24 hours of antibiotics, fever free, and feeling well before returning to school.
* Your child has had vomiting or diarrhea during the past 24 hours.
* Your child has a persistent, moist, productive cough, chest congestion, or discolored nasal drainage.
* Your child has an unexplained rash, sore or pink eyes with a discharge.
Some students are returning to school too soon after being home ill. They should be kept home until they have been symptom free for 24 hours. This is important for your child's health and the health of his/her classmates. Please continue to remind your child of the importance of frequent hand washing, covering their coughs with their elbow, and proper use and disposal of tissues during this cold and flu season.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter concerning the health of our Corron students.
