Principal's Message

Dear Jackie Robinson K-8 Community,

I hope you all had a relaxing and safe three day weekend! I appreciate the 70+ elementary parents that were able to join me during my Principal Community Zoom meeting last Thursday. I hope you found the information shared helpful as you made your instructional setting selection. A reminder that plans for in-person instruction are currently in place for elementary students. No plans are in place for Middle School students at this time.

Our Superintendent, Dr. Jill Baker, sent out a community video update on Friday, February 5. Find the link above to watch the video. I look forward to discussing our re-opening plans with you as the date gets closer.

Here are some announcements for the week:

1. Our teachers have been hard at work to complete elementary achievement reports and grades. Parents, be advised that you will be able to view your child's grades starting this Friday, February 12.

6. CORE SURVEY - It's that time off the year where you get a chance to tell us how we are doing as a school. I look forward to your honest feedback so that we can reflect at Robinson and ensure we are meeting the needs of our school community. The survey window is from 2/9 - 3/19. Be on the lookout for an email from Panorama Education.

Thanks again for all of your support to keep our students connected!
