This week was an exciting week for Corley families! The fall semester Parent/Teacher conferences took place in a new virtual format. We appreciate all of the parents who met with the teachers to discuss student progress. We are proud of the work of our students and teachers.

If you were not able to attend a conference or if you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher. The home-school connection is crucial to student success.

We will be selling ice cream on on Friday, October 30th during TDPE outside! We will have Cookies & Cream Cones, Crazy Cones, Polar Blasts and Strawberry Scooter bars for sale. All ice cream will be $1.00 and all proceeds go to United Way.

Mask and Face Covering Guidelines

All face masks or face coverings should:

• Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin.

• Fit securely against both sides of the face.

How many masks should I provide for my child?

We recommend at least 2. One will be worn when the student arrives to school, but a back-up should be sent in a sealed plastic bag kept in the backpack. If one gets dirty during the school day, we'll switch out the masks and send the soiled one home to be laundered.

We thank you for sending our Patriots to school with masks and the other appropriate materials to ensure safety and academic success.

Curbside Pick-up of Meals Monday-Friday. Meals will be available for pick-up from 11:00-12:30.

We have been talking with Corley students about mindfulness or being mindful. That means slowing down so you can pay attention to how your body and heart feel, and what your mind is full of, or what your mind is thinking.

Corley students and teachers have learned these breathing techniques. You can try these at home too.

Early Check-Out

Parents are asked to call the school 45 minutes -1 hour prior to requesting early check-out in order to prepare the student.

When you arrive to the school please have your Photo ID out and ready to show at the door Buzz In System. We will bring your student to you.
