Monthly Memo from the Principal

Mrs. Robbins- March 2022

Spring is in the AIR!!! Well something is...


Happy first day of March! Man, this Texas weather is something. If you suffer from sinus pressure like I do, bless you. The fluctuations in weather and barometric pressure are a real thing for me...headaches for days. Not to mention the cedar pollen allergies. If you don't suffer with any of it...I am jealous. Don't get me wrong, I want the warmer weather and green grass, so I am willing to suffer like everyone else, but it is tough. The cold and gray skies are such a bummer. Bring on the warm breeze and blue skies!

I used the baseball background here because I am hoping it will spur the MLB season into action and not be delayed due to a lockout. I love baseball and it fills my bucket this time of year. For now, I have college baseball and my son's spring season (he's in 7th grade) to fill our hearts and calendar. Not to mention the countless other items we have going on with select basketball (one daughter) and UIL theater (different daughter)...our calendar has no problem filling up. I am sure your family is the same way! Bring on all the things that spring holds for us all.

Just a reminder that spring break is coming SOON! We are closed from Saturday, March 12 to Monday, March 21. Students will return on Tuesday, March 22. We hope you all enjoy time together as a family and can rest and relax at some point during the break. As for my family, we are heading to Longview, TX to visit my family for a few days, but will be home most of the time to catch up on laundry, cleaning out closets and drawers, and sleep.

Please let us know if your family or Husky need anything. We are here to help.

Safety Protocol/Procedure Updates for March 2022

Let's try this again...

Due to a drastic decrease in Covid cases, our district will soon move into the "green" phase of our safety protocols. We thank each and every family for being flexible and following our ever-changing processes.

With all of this in mind, we will have the following changes starting after Spring Break:

  • Leander ISD approved volunteers may be on campus with teacher/administrator approval or for campus needs per PTA, front office, or administrators
  • Visitors will be allowed to attend lunch with students on Fridays only; must sign in at the front office using driver's license
  • Water fountains will be uncovered and used as needed
  • Students do not have to "cohort" with their class and can mix with other groups
  • Husky Huddle (Friday morning campus meeting) may resume at the end of March
  • Volunteers will be allowed for campus-wide events; must be an approved LISD volunteer

The following will remain in place due to effectiveness and student independence:

  • Morning/afternoon arrival and dismissal procedures will stay the same; families can enter the building using our check-in process if needed (with teacher approval)
  • Items being dropped off will not interrupt instruction; students may pick up items as needed once teacher is notified by front office or parent notification
  • Birthday items must be individually wrapped and brought in with the student (not homemade)
  • Refillable water bottles are encouraged
  • Utilizing Zoom or Google Meet for parent/teacher/program meetings (based on needs of all involved)

If you have any questions about these updates, please don't hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Robbins at

PHE PTA General Membership Meeting

PHE PTA will be hosting a general membership meeting on Thursday, March 10 at 7:00 PM via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed to members prior to the meeting. You must be a current PHE PTA member to attend. We would love to have as many people as possible attend. If you are not a member, please purchase your membership here.

We NEED you! Calling all WATCH DOGS and SUPER MOMS!!

Would you be able to dedicate a half day or full day to volunteer at school? Please check out this informational presentation about volunteering on our campus as a Watch DOGS dad or SuperMOM. We will kick off this effort the week after Spring Break. You MUST be an approved Leander ISD volunteer. See registration information here. That approval takes 24-48 hours. See Ms. Joanna in the front office to sign up!

See Leander ISD Volunteer Guidelines here.

Tell US something GOOD!

Fill out this form and let us know when your Husky has something huge going on outside of school. Not just sports! We would love to celebrate their successes outside of school here at PHE.
