Another Successful Re-entry
We welcomed our 3-5 students into their new in person and online classes this week. We've heard lots of positive feedback from families, students, and staff. It's been nice to see all of our students being successful in the setting that works best for their family.
Quick reminder to only turn right onto couch after student drop off.. This should help with our arrival process.
Our school community has been so supportive of our staff and families. We truly are #RobinsonStrong. Thank you for all you're doing!
Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or if I can support your family in any way.
