Welcome Back!!

2021-2022 School Year

A message from the Principal...

Dear CES Families,


I hope this newsletter finds you and your family well. While summer break often brings images of family hikes, fun on the river, and lazy rainy days, that hasn't been the case at Corinth CSD. We have been busy providing learning activities around academics and athletics. The maintenance and cleaning crews continue to work diligently to prepare our schools and grounds for the fall. The technology team has been busy cleaning and repairing every single chromebook in the district. This is no small task for a district that is one to one with devices K-12!! The Corinth Cafe served hundreds of meals throughout the summer weeks. The transportation crew provided bus rides for all of the students participating in summer learning. We are grateful for all of the teamwork to create the best learning environment for our students. We are just about ready to welcome everyone back into the building. We will have a short supply drop off time on Tuesday, September 7 details are below. Please review all of the current COVID-19 protocols and contact me with any questions. I am very excited for this school year to begin. We have so many new and fun programs planned for the year.


Sincerely,

Renee Young

Building Principal

School Supply Drop Off

Tuesday, September 7

3:00-3:30


This is a tradition that we missed last year due to COVID-19 limitations. This year the school will be open with safety protocols in place. All individuals must wear a mask while inside the school building and three feet of physical distancing should be maintained. We ask that families plan on one adult attending to keep the numbers of visitors low. Staff will be available throughout the school to assist you in finding your new classroom. Most of our teachers will be in their rooms to meet students and collect school supplies. Families can drop in anytime between 3:00-3:30.

PTSA Drop in Event

Bus Loop- Outdoor Event

Welcome Universal Preschool and Kindergarten Students!!

This year is especially exciting because we are adding two Universal Preschool classrooms in our Kindergarten wing. Our UPK is free to all four year olds that reside in the Corinth School District. (students must turn four by December 1, 2021)


This year's Kindergarten class is a large one! We have five sections of Kindergarten and three new teachers. We are looking forward to this big class and their start in our school.

Student and Parent Handbook

Please read the handbook carefully. It is filled with useful information that will answer many questions you have throughout the school year. A computer use contract will go home with your child on the first day of school. Please read, sign, and return the contract to school as soon as possible.

COVID-19 - Health and Safety Requirements

  • All individuals must wear an appropriate mask at all times while inside any of our buildings. Masks can be removed when individuals are eating or drinking
  • Masks are optional outside of buildings on school grounds
  • All students and staff must wear a mask on district transportation
  • Students and staff will maintain 3ft physical distancing whenever possible

School Hours and Parent Drop Off

UPK- 8:00-2:00


K-4- 8:15-2:20


As stated above, we are staggering our start and end times to provide an early arrival/dismissal for the UPK students. With this schedule difference we need to change our parent drop off traffic flow. The goal of this change is to provide a safe and early drop off for our youngest learners. They will be starting their school day at 8:00 while the rest of the building will start at 8:15. Therefore, we will reroute the UPK parents through the bus loop to bypass the the longer K-4 parent drop off line. A video was created to help explain the change and is linked below. The UPK bypass will be closed at 8:05 to allow school buses onto the bus ramp. We will have signs and staff out directing traffic for the first month while we all get used to the change. Parents of students in UPK with siblings in K-4 will drop off their UPK student and park in the empty lot by the parent drop off loop. Parents will walk their K-4 child to the sidewalk for drop off at 8:15. https://www.wevideo.com/view/2314290008

The breakfast and lunch program will begin on Thursday, September 9th. Breakfast and lunch will be free for all students during the 2021-2022 school year. Menus are updated each month and can be found on our website. https://www.corinthcsd.org/cafeteria--menus
