Principal's Message

Dear Jackie Robinson K-8 Community,

1. Elementary Reopening - March 29, 2021, marks our upcoming ELEMENTARY campus re-opening and it is four weeks away. Know that we are hard at work ensuring that Robinson follows district guidelines that are in accordance with the California Department of Health guidelines for COVID safety. Below find a flyer inviting you to join me during my Principal Zoom Meeting @ 3:00pm on 3/4/21 to help answer questions you may have to help prepare for our reopening plans.

2. Middle School Reopening - April 20, 2021, is when our school will open for our Middle School students. In order to be able to make that happen, we need all Middle School parents to complete a survey to decide if they want in-person vs online instruction. This survey will be available to you for the next two weeks. Please complete it ASAP. Below find a flyer inviting you to join me during my Principal Zoom Meeting @ 5:00pm on 3/4/21 to help answer questions you may have regarding the reopening survey.

3. Parent Conference Minimum Days, Gr. K-8- Tuesday and Wednesday, March 2-3, 1:00 dismissal for Middle School Students. Teachers will contact selected families in order to discuss interventions to support student success.

4. Middle School Minimum Day Schedules- These will continue on Wednesdays and Thursdays for middle school planning, with 1:00 dismissal.

5. Support from Nursing Services- Our district's Nursing Services has prepared these health guidelines to prepare your child for returning to in-person instruction. Note that it states that students will be allowed to bring water bottles, as water fountains will be closed for COVID safety until further notice:

6. CORE Culture/Climate Survey- Don't forget to respond to the email from Panorama Education in order to represent Robinson in the district feedback for all of our school sites. Thank you to all who have responded already! Deadline is March 19.

7. Read Across America- All students this week are encouraged to participate by celebrating/reading about diverse authors & books. Our librarian, Ms. Will, has provided teachers with resources to utilize with students this week. Read Across America is an opportunity to promote the love of reading in all languages.

Thanks again for all of your support to have our students remain connected and engaged with us!

Estimadas familias de Robinson K-8 Academy,

A continuación encontrará un volante que lo invita a unirse a mí durante mi reunión de Zoom con el director a las 3:00 pm el 3/4/21 para ayudar a responder las preguntas que pueda tener para ayudar a prepararse para nuestros planes de reapertura.

2. Reapertura de la escuela intermedia: el 20 de abril de 2021, es cuando nuestra escuela abrirá para nuestros estudiantes de la escuela intermedia. Para poder hacer que eso suceda, necesitamos que todos los padres de la escuela intermedia completen una encuesta para decidir si quieren instrucción en persona o en línea. Esta encuesta estará disponible para usted durante las próximas dos semanas. Por favor complételo lo antes posible. A continuación, encontrará un volante que lo invita a unirse a mí durante mi reunión de Zoom con el director a las 5:00 pm el 3/4/21 para ayudar a responder las preguntas que pueda tener sobre la reapertura de la encuesta.

3. Días mínimos de conferencias con los padres, Gr. K-8- Martes y miércoles, 2-3 de marzo, salida a la 1:00 para estudiantes de secundaria. Los maestros se comunicarán con las familias seleccionadas para discutir las intervenciones para apoyar el éxito de los estudiantes.

Tenga en cuenta que establece que los estudiantes podrán traer botellas de agua, ya que las fuentes de agua estarán cerradas por seguridad de COVID hasta nuevo aviso:

6. Encuesta CORE sobre cultura / clima: no se olvide de responder al correo electrónico de Panorama Education para representar a Robinson en los comentarios del distrito para todos nuestros planteles escolares. ¡Gracias a todos los que ya han respondido! La fecha límite es el 19 de marzo.

7. Read Across America- Se anima a todos los estudiantes esta semana a participar celebrando / leyendo sobre diversos autores y libros. Nuestra bibliotecaria, la Srta.

Dolphin News Splash!

February 2021

Hello Dolphin Parents!

It’s Ms. Denise and I want to let you know that I’m back! Back for FUN and ADVENTURES from the WRAP program to help make Virtual Programming for our JROB students something for them to look forward to!

I’ve compiled a list of activities that I’m sure will have them asking for more! For example, courtesy of the California Science Museum, I will be playing the role of “The Gross Scientist! The kids will be learning things like Sticky Snot, Let It Rip (Why do farts make sounds?), Spill Your Guts (Why vomiting is important!), and Germ Busters. For these and other hands-on activities, WE will provide the kids with the supplies needed for the activity.

We will recognize some Fun Facts of the day (Chinese New Year, Random Act of Kindness Day, Make a Friend Day, and more!) For Friday’s Fun Day, we’ll do some singing and dancing to end the week on a good note!

There will also be Yoga and Stretching classes, along with instructions on how to make a healthy snack, and The Boys & Girls Club will be providing the necessary supplies/ingredients!

This program is open to all JROB students from 2:30-4:30 and is sure to fill up fast, so be sure to fill out the application by going to this link:

Can’t WAIT to see you!

Ms. Denise
