K.I.S.S. Lunches

K.I.S.S. stands for "Kids Invite Someone Special". On February 14 or15, all students will have the opportunity to invite someone special to eat lunch with them. In order to accommodate for the larger crowds, guests must attend on the student's assigned day. Students that do not have guests will eat with their friends in their classroom to make sure we have plenty of room for our guests. This year our fire marshal required us to make some changes to our seating in the cafeteria, and we removed approximately 8 tables. Due to seat availability, we will only have our students with guests eating in the cafeteria on their assigned K.I.S.S. Lunch day. On the day that is not their assigned day, ALL students will eat in their classrooms. We are not able to accommodate guests on the day the students eat in their classrooms.


Please see the schedule below for dates and times.

Valentine's Day

On February 14, all students may bring valentines for their class. Teachers will communicate with their parents to let them know the number of students in the class. Students will be decorating Valentine's bags at school and near the end of the day on February 14, they will get to open their valentines. We will also bring a special cookie and drink to the classrooms (students will allergies will be included with appropriate allergy-free treats). This is a special "student-only" party. Our end of year parties will allow for parents as guests.

E-Track

We are excited for our students to have the opportunity to participate in enrichment tracks (E-Track) again this year. If you are new to Robison, E-track is another name for enrichment clusters. Enrichment clusters are groups of students who share common interests and come together during specially designated time blocks to pursue interests. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to discover and cultivate their interests and passions through innovative learning experiences that inspire them to add value to their community and world. Students in 2nd-5th grade have made their selections based upon the choices for their grade level. Our kindergarten and first-grade students will be rotating with their homeroom classes to other teachers' rooms to participate in a modified version of E-track. We will have another E-track session in May. Our first E-track session will begin January 17 and will conclude February 13. E-track will take place from 3:00 to 3:45 on the scheduled dates. We certainly don't want any students to miss out on these special days, so here are the dates for our first session: January 17, January 24, January 31, February 7, and February 13. We will keep you posted and share pictures once this begins!

Checking Out Students During the Day

Thank you for making your child's attendance at school a priority. We recognize that there are times that your child must be checked out during the school day. With many new families new to our school community, we thought it would be helpful to explain our checkout procedures. If your child attends a daycare after school, please notify them if you are checking your child out early for the day.


Planned Appointments

If your child has a scheduled appointment, please send a note with him/her that morning. Your child will bring the note to the front office, and their teacher will receive a nametag to give your student that reminds them of what time to report to the front office. You will need to come to the front office to sign out your child. Please be sure to bring your driver's license.


Unplanned Appointments or Emergency Situations

Please call the front desk by 2:30 pm in order to ensure the front office staff has enough time to notify the teacher to make them aware of the transportation change. We do our best to avoid classroom interruptions; therefore, we prefer to avoid using the intercom to call for students. As you can imagine, the end of the day gets busy with checkouts; therefore, the earlier the notification you are able to give the staff, the better. As always, your child's safety is our priority, and we want to make sure that transportation is accurate for each of our students.
