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:

During the past two weeks, Corron students have participated in lessons to identify ‘things that bug me’ or triggers, for their emotions. These lessons are aligned to our school wide Social Emotional Learning goal: By May 2020, all students will identify triggers, feelings and preferred strategies for calming down. Mrs. Roskuszka, our Student Support Interventionist, has been leading these lessons in each of our classrooms.

Last school year, Corron students identified the “Give Me 5” Corron’s Top 5 Calming Strategies. The lessons this year focus on students being able to identify what their body and mind are feeling when they experience a trigger and to be mindful of these feelings so they know when to use a calming strategy. During the lessons, the students discuss that everyone has these emotions at times; however, we want to manage them and not have them ‘explode’ out of us. Please talk with your students about why it’s important to know our own triggers. We want to try to avoid them if we can, be mindful of how our mind and body feel, prepare ourselves how to respond and offer empathy to others if we observe those emotions in them.

Outdoor Recess (from the district elementary handbook)

Students will go outdoors each day for a recess after lunch. Students are expected to dress appropriately for the weather and activity. This includes coats, hats, gloves, boots, and shoes appropriate for running, climbing, etc. Students will go outdoors unless the weather is inclement. Staff may determine that weather conditions do not allow for outside activity if: temperatures are at or below zero degrees (with wind chill); rain, sleet or snow; excessive wind; and/or lightning; or if the temperature (or heat index) reaches extreme levels.

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.
