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.

Corley is a PBIS school! PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Support. At school, we teach students to be respectful, responsible and a problem solver. YOU are your child’s first teacher! Thank you for helping your child show positive behavior at school and at home!

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.
