Welcome back! I hope you and your family had a fun and relaxing Spring Break. We look forward to welcoming the kiddos back. Remember this is a short week. Students and staff are off tomorrow and Friday will be asynchronous learning for all K-12 students. The district is offering vaccinations on Friday for all staff members and this is why we will be asynchronous. I apologize for any difficulties this may cause your family and appreciate your understanding about the importance of ensuring all our staff can be vaccinated.
We will be finishing up informational canvassing this week if you see us out and about in your neighborhood, please say hello. Voting takes place on April 6th. We are a polling site and voters will enter and exit the doors at the gym so that they are not around any of our students or staff. Poll workers will complete a health screening before coming onto campus.
Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, ideas, or if we can provide support in any way. Thank you for your partnership in keeping the Robinson community safe.

No Summer Adventure Club 2021
To make up for lost time we are having our first ever beginning band camp this summer, June 7-17 at KHS. Camp will run from 9:00am-11:30am and is for any current 5th grade/incoming 6th grade student. If you started playing virtually this year, we encourage you to join us! If you did not start this year and would like to start in person this summer, we would love for you to join us!
Students will be introduced to instrument assembly and sound, note values and rhythms. They will learn to read a staff key and a time signature, learn some fun songs and give an outdoor performance for family members on the last day of camp. Each participant will need to bring his/her own instrument. We recommend renting from Nottelmann Music. Campers should choose from the following: flute, clarinet, trumpet or baritone. Musician’s masks and instrument bell covers will be provided at camp.

Summer School Information
Please visit our Summer School website to learn more about our expanded summer options for students. A range of K-12 jobs will be posted later this week, and additional information about professional learning and curriculum work will be shared soon.
Student and staff wellbeing has been and will be central to our planning. Families will need time away this summer, and many will schedule vacations that have been on hold for months. We know this, and we appreciate this - just as we know and appreciate that many students have academic and social-emotional needs to be addressed. Our summer plans seek to balance the needs of students and staff, recognizing important work to be done while keeping wellness at the forefront of our thinking.

Prop R - Right for Kids, Right for Our Community
A Zero-Tax Rate Change Proposal Would Address Overcrowding, Safety and Security Challenges, and More
Faced with overcrowded classrooms and a lack of adequate instructional space in its schools, the Kirkwood School District Board of Education unanimously voted on Monday, Jan. 25, to place a zero-tax rate change bond proposal on the April 6, 2021 ballot.
The proposal, called Proposition R, is a ballot issue designed to provide the financial resources to address overcrowding and maintain class sizes with additional classrooms, update aging infrastructure and systems, enhance safety and security district-wide, and complete additional needed facility updates. If approved by voters, every building in the District would be improved. Proposition R requires 57.143% voter approval.
Prop R does not include a new elementary school building.
For more information, please visit our website: kirkwoodschools.org/PropR.
Online Registration is for New Students Only- if your child is currently enrolled you do not need to complete this even if transitioning to a new building (Nipher or North Kirkwood). Thanks!
