Parent Post – March 3, 2017

March 3, 2017

Update from the Principal

We did it again!  Two MORE distinguished awards are coming our way! Please be sure to read all about it HERE!

What a wonderful way to start the month of March.  I am very appreciative of the hard work that all of our Cory Crew puts into each and every child everyday.  I also am thankful to all of you, our parents, for the strong partnership that you provide with our school.

March brings about a variety of weather patterns that bring out our four legged friends in the sunshine and the next day shuts down schools  in the snow. Knowing our change of weather can happen so quickly, I wanted to put out a few friendly reminders.  You can also read all of our School-Wide Expectations by clicking HERE.

  • Pets on Campus- While we love our four-legged friends, Denver City Ordinances prohibit having dogs or other animals on the playground. This includes pets on a leash. This is for the safety and often, health of our students, as there are students who are allergic and/or have fears of strange dogs or other animals.  In addition, a pet may be gentle at home but dangerous at school when it comes into contact with so many different children.  Service dogs are exempt from this policy.
  • Winter Weather Procedures- Click Winter Weather Procedures to refresh yourself on our procedures if and when our school is on delay or closed.   Also, please remember we DO go outside on most winter days, so be sure to bundle your kiddos up and make sure they have hats, gloves and other winter gear (boots if there is snow, etc) to enjoy the outdoors.

Last, but not least, remember to join our Facebook Page!  We post many fun pictures and updates throughout the week that you do not want to miss!

In partnership,

Jennifer Harris, Proud Principal of the Cory Cougars
