Welcome Back!

Hello everyone-


We welcomed our K-2 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.


I've been communicating a lot this week, and so much of the information today is a repeat of what I've already shared. I want to reinforce the in person communication to ensure that our 3-5 grade families and kids are ready for their return on Wednesday. Please remember that all students are off on Monday and Tuesday this week.


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.


Take Care-

Angeline

Wacky Wednesday

We will continue doing Wacky Wednesday as a way for our online and in person kids to have a fun way to get past the middle of the week. This Wednesday's theme is once again to wear your Robinson Gear. We will wear our gear this week since Wednesday is the day that our 3-5 students begin their new online or in person classes.

Masks required on bus

Please make sure that your child has their mask on before boarding the bus. Students without a mask will be required to put on a disposable mask from the driver (if they don't have a mask with them) prior to getting on the bus without a mask.

No nuts in breakfast, lunch, or snacks. PTO hosting nut free snack drive

Chartwells is currently providing a nut free breakfast and lunch free of charge for any student who would like one.


All K-5 classrooms have snack in the classroom as well. Snacks are not provided by Chartwells and parents need to pack a nut free snack for their students.


If you would like to send in additional nut free snacks, please send these in on Thursday, October 22nd. We will be collecting snacks at the OLC and the parent drop off/pick up line. You can also send additional snacks in if your child rides the bus and the classroom teacher will collect them. Thank you for your donation!

This past Friday, October 9th was our last curbside pick up for a couple weeks as we transition into in-person learning for some. We will begin curbside pick up again on Friday, October 30th for families who opt to continue virtual learning. Students who are at Robinson for in-person learning will be able to check out books while at school. Please email kristin.davis@kirkwoodschools.org with any questions.
