First Day of School | August 10

Hello Robinson Families,


Happy New School Year! Welcome back to our returning families. We have missed your children and cannot wait to see their smiling faces again soon. To all families new to Robinson, we are happy you are joining our amazing school community and we look forward to meeting you and getting to know your wonderful children.


Sixth grade Rising Razorbacks, we are so excited to help you transition to middle school! Our back-to-school 6th grade events such as Razorback Camp and Meet-the-Teacher will be great to help you learn about Robinson before the first day of school. Seventh and eighth grade students who attended Robinson last year or are new to Plano ISD, we will also have Razorback Camp for you to help prepare you for the new school year.


The Robinson Staff is committed to creating a learning environment where your children feel connected and safe while continuing our tradition of academic excellence. As we enter into this new school year together, I want to thank you in advance for your partnership and support.


Please continue to read the PISD emails from the district that contains important information. You may also visit the parent homepage at https://www.pisd.edu/domain/11811. We are excited to see everyone in August!



All the best,


Kennitra Robertson

Principal
