Corinth Elementary School

Dear Families,

Please be sure to see our calendar on page 2 for our annual Dine with your Valentine this month!  The children love to have a lunch date for this event so we hope that you will all be able to make it.  The cafeteria is very full so only 1 adult per child for this event. 

Outside Recess

Classes go outside for recess during the winter months.  Please send your child prepared with boots, hats, gloves/mittens, and snow pants to be outside for 30 minutes.  Let us know if your child does not have these items because we may be able to help.

Parking and Student Safety for Arrival and Dismissal

  1. The bus ramp is closed from 7:00-9:00 in the morning and from 2:00-4:00 in the afternoon.  We need to keep this area clear for the safety of our students and for our buses.
  2. The parent drop-off loop is in the back of the building near the first grade entrance.  Students may enter through those doors starting at 8:14 a.m.
  3. Parents who are escorting their child into the building should park in the main parking lot at the front of the building.  You must park and walk your student into the building.  Students should NOT be crossing the bus ramp without their adult escort.
  4. Both parking lots can be utilized when you are picking your student up at dismissal.  There are plenty of parking spaces in both lots making parking along the road unnecessary.

Raptor Visitor Management System

Beginning this month, the Corinth Central School District will implement the Raptor Visitor Management System.  You will be asked to provide your driver’s license or other form of photo identification if you wish to enter the school building.  At that time, you will be given a visitor’s pass with your photo identification to wear during your visit.  Upon exiting the building you will hand in your visitor pass at the main office to be checked out of the Raptor system by our building attendance clerk.  Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we make our schools safer for our students.


The Parent-Teacher-Student Association will be changing their monthly meeting dates to allow for members to attend both the PTSA meetings and the Board of Education meetings.  Please check the monthly newsletter for the changed date.  This month we will meet on Tuesday, February 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the elementary school cafeteria.
