Just Admitted? WELCOME!

Some wait-lists are finally moving, as families make last-minute commitments for the year. This creates quite a surprise for those who have been waiting/hoping right up to the last minute!

If you receive an admission email, just contact Corbett Charter School at bdunton@corbettcharter.k12.or.us and we will get things rolling. It's children first, paperwork second. We will get you placed, scheduled, and learning, and we will get the brief administrative work done 'on the run'.

Welcome to Corbett Charter School, Oregon's Premier K-12 Opportunity!

A Note Regarding End of Day Routines

Dear families,
With the school year upon us it's time to get organized for after-school pick-up. For the majority of you who will be picking your children up from school yourself or with a carpool, here are the arrangements.
If your child will be traveling together with a middle or high school student, they will meet you at the high school drive-through pick-up area. Please enter the drive-through area next to the post office east of the school.
If your children are in the elementary school and traveling with only elementary students, you may drive up to meet them at the parking lot loading area in front of the main grade school doors. We are eager for any of these families to volunteer to use the high school pick-up area instead! It is important that charter families enter the grade school parking lot no sooner than 3:15.
If your child is in the elementary school, your child's teacher will be collecting this information from you at Back-to-School Night on Thursday, Aug. 25 from 6-8 pm. Let's be sure to plan ahead for a great first day of school!
Regardless of the pick-up routine, your child will be under the direct supervision of a teacher for the entire time until you have them safely on board.

Supply List Confusion?

It is apparent that folks have seen more than one elementary supply list.

If you have purchased supplies, please don't go buy more. Almost all of them will be used in common, and it just doesn't matter that much.

The supply lists that are posted online and that say Corbett Charter School are our favorite. They includes the admonition to not send pencil boxes. Why no pencil boxes? Because they are more of a distraction than a needed piece of equipment!

Sorry for any confusion. Please do not spend an extra dime because of it.

First Day of School

The first day of school can be a little intimidating. Everyone would like to know what to expect. In advance. Our advice? Stay flexible. A little apprehension can be a growing experience. Everyone is safe here.

High School students will begin there first day in an assembly in the main gym. Everyone will know the shape of their day prior to leaving the assembly. It will be a great adventure.

Breath. (Students, you breath, too!)

Basics: School Schedules

Everyone starts school at 7:55 a.m.
Elementary and Middle Schools dismiss at 3:20.
Middle School students who are not headed directly home (extra curricular and such)
stay until high school dismissal time. They stay with their teacher for the entire period.
High School dismisses at 3:36.

Students may arrive 15 minutes early for elementary school. We cannot provide supervision prior to 7:40.

Parents sometimes ask about pick-up routines. We will publish them by classroom. All children will be supervised every moment until they are picked up. It is expected that students will be picked up in a timely manner at the end of each school day. We understand that this is a challenge. It is simply one of our working conditions, and everyone is asked to do their part. Be the solution you are looking for.
