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

Happy 2021! It is so nice to have the students back in the building after 6 weeks apart. From visiting classrooms and talking with our remote teachers, it sounds like our students jumped right back into our routines and are busy learning new things. Students are overwhelmingly excited to be back together with their classmates and teachers, and it shows in their smiling eyes. Thank you for all that you did (and continue to do) to support them as we have made transitions to different settings and expectations.

Since it’s been a while and we also have families who have changed their instructional settings, here are a few reminders for morning routines:

  • If your child is a remote learner and will be out for all or part of a day, please call the office to report the absence.

  • If your child is attending school in person, please certify them by 7:30. You will also need to initial the tag each day as evidence that you have completed the certification. This is a “ticket” to get into the classroom quickly.

Please continue to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
