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

In one week we will be welcoming our families into our building to start the school year. It’s been three years since we’ve been able to open our doors to everyone, and we are so excited to return to some of our beginning of year traditions! Please be sure to read all of the information below to stay up to date about the start of our 22-23 school year.

Supply Drop-Off/Ice Cream Social

Our supply drop-off event will be held on Monday, August 8th from 4:00 - 6:00. Families can drop off school supplies in the classroom, meet the teacher, and then head to our cafeteria where our PTO will be hosting an ice cream social. There will also be information about how to get involved with our Corron PTO.

Arrival and dismissal procedures

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 2 locations this year. These locations are the front door (#1) 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. All other grade levels will have a choice of exiting through doors 1, 8, or 23 (south side by the field). Parents can meet their children near any of these areas. 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. If you need to change your child’s plans for dismissal, please email the teacher and then call the office so we can ensure that we know about the change.

Pick up is at 3:00 - there is no after-school supervision provided once dismissal ends.

There are no dogs allowed on school property during drop-off or pick up.

Picture Day

Corron’s picture day will be held on Tuesday, September 27th. More information will be sent out prior to the event regarding how to order your child’s photos.

Open House

In lieu of Curriculum Night, all D303 elementary schools will be hosting an Open House for families. Corron’s event will be held on Monday, September 12th. Parents and students will be invited in to tour the school and see their classrooms. The event will be held in the evening, with families with last name’s A-L coming from 6:00 - 6:30 and M-Z coming from 6:45 - 7:15. Our staff will share more information as the date approaches.

Breakfast and Lunch

Our school lunch program will be returning to pre-pandemic structures. Students will need to have money on their lunch account through the use of PushCoin in order to purchase breakfast or lunch. Breakfast will be “grab and go” as students come in each morning. For lunch, students will line up to fill their tray with their selections in the cafeteria as they did pre-pandemic. Staff will be available to support students the first few days of school.
