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:

Our school building is starting to buzz with teachers setting up their classrooms and our office staff preparing for our 535 students to walk through our doors in a few weeks. We are so excited to be welcoming our former students as well our newest Corron Coyotes for the 2021-2022 school year.

I wanted to share a few pieces of information regarding the first week of school.

  • Supply Drop Off: On Monday, August 9th, classroom teachers will be welcoming students to drop off their school supplies between the hours of 3:30 - 5:30. Students will enter their classrooms through their exterior doors to bring in their materials. Teachers will share their door numbers before this event. Parents will need to remain outside, as there are still restrictions on parents entering the building. During the same hours, our PTO will be hosting an Ice Cream Social out on the back playground as a way to bring our families back together.

  • First Day of School: Students will enter the building when they are dropped off on the first day. We will not be gathering on the back playground beforehand. Supervision for drop off begins at 7:45 each school day, so please do not arrive before that time.

  • Daily Arrival: Students will be able to enter the building through 3 different locations this year. These locations are the front door (#1), the south door facing Thornwood Drive (#23), and the door by the back playground (#8). Families can choose the drop off location that works best for them. Students will be allowed to enter the building at 7:45 and will head down to their classrooms at that point. There will be adult assistance for the first few weeks for students who need help finding their way. Supervision will begin at 7:45, so please do not drop off your child before that time.

    • Front parking lot: this will continue to be a drive up area where parents remain in their cars and drop students off in the unloading zone. The bus circle is reserved for buses only.

    • Back of building: Parents are allowed to park in the Park District lot and walk their child to the sidewalk. There is no drive up lane to drop and go, as this causes unsafe conditions.

  • Daily Pick Up: Our Kindergarten classes will be exiting at the front of the building (half day and full day students). All other students will exit their classroom doors as they did last year. Parents can meet their child at their door, at the back of the school, or wait for them in the pick up line at the front (remaining in their cars). The bus circle will not be available for cars. For our K-2 students, please let your child’s teacher know how your child will be getting home and/or who will be picking them up.

I will continue to send out communications over the next week to ensure that all of our families are ready to go for the start of our school year. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!
