Dear Jackie Robinson K-8 Community,

Hope everyone had a relaxing Spring break!

Thanks to COVID rates dropping we are officially in the ORANGE tier!

Please make sure you talk to your children on the importance to be respectful of our safety guidelines.

Here are the announcements for the upcoming school week:

1. Middle School Families Re-Opening Meeting- Tuesday, April 13, 4:00 pm.

Zoom link:

All middle school families and students are encouraged to attend this online meeting which will explain the new schedules for both in-person hybrid and online students (which will begin the week of April 19th), and the new on-campus procedures for our in-person students.

2. Middle School Asynchronous Dates- All district middle schools chose site specific dates this week for teacher preparation for re-opening. There will be no Zoom sessions on Robinson's asynchronous dates for middle school this Wednesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 15.

6. Elementary and Middle School In-Person Daily Health Screening Questions- A reminder that all in-person families will receive a Health Screening Google Form email/text message every morning asking important questions. Thank you for your attention to how important this process is to everyone's safety.

Thank you for your time and patience in adapting to all of the re-opening procedures.

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!
