Thank you LC 5-1 Parents

Thank you to the parents from Learning Community 5-1 that donated salty and sweet treats along with soda, water and sparkling water. Thanks also to the PTO for organizing the donations and Mrs. Malone and Mrs. King for organizing the treats for safe delivery.


These gifts of love were delivered to all Collins staff today. The Collins staff sends all of our thanks and appreciation for your kindness and generosity. We will never be able to express how much this means to all of us.

Counselor Update

Red Ribbon Week

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Red Ribbon Week dress up days! Every morning, we held announcements commemorating Red Ribbon Week, and our kids were superheroes and really learned “sock it to drugs” and “give drugs the boot!” We couldn’t have had such a successful week without your help, so thank you so much for helping your student participate!

Nurse Kendall Update

If someone in your household tests positive for Covid-19 and you keep your child at home to quarantine, please notify the school. The information is confidential and we keep track for statistical purposes. If you have any questions about the process do not hesitate to call me at 281-298-3809.


As your children participate in extracurricular activities it is important to stay diligent in healthy practices to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

HealthyChildren.org has some great advice for families participating in youth sports and other activities.
