DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

Wisconsin weather is upon us! Please make sure your son/daughter is dressed appropriately for outdoor recess. Coats and hats are necessary for the impending cold weather. However, this being Wisconsin, it can become warm and sunny by noontime. Please remind your child if they choose to remove their jacket during recess they are to be tied around their waist and not left on the playground. The decision to have an outdoor or indoor recess is based on both the wind speed and temperature at 11:30 am. If it is an outside recess day, all students must go outdoors. Please label your child's coat, hat & mittens with their name.

COVID VACCINES FOR STUDENTS AGES 5-11

The COVID-19 vaccines for administration for ages 5-11 were approved last week. Franklin Public Schools is partnering with Life Change Pharmacy to hold two COVID-19 vaccine clinics Tuesday, November 9th, and Thursday, November 11th from 4:30p-7p in the Commons at Forest Park Middle School. We have a few open slots still open at this time. Please CLICK HERE to sign up. If you have multiple children that you would like to sign up for the clinic, you will need to complete a new form for each child. Please note that this is the first shot of a two shot series, so your child will also need to be able to attend a clinic three weeks later to receive their second vaccine. We will continue to look to offer more opportunities like this in the future.


In order for your child to be able to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in youth ages 5-11, the following must be completed:


If you have any questions about whether or not to have your child vaccinated against COVID-19, please contact your child’s primary health care provider to discuss.



TRADITION HERE AT ROBINWOOD

In order to showcase the many cultures that make up our Robinwood Family, we will again be displaying a Cultural Tree in the lobby outside of the library. We are asking interested families to donate a decoration to be placed on the tree. This item can be either purchased or handmade. It should however depict a part of your culture or native country. Please place any decorations in a bag with a note as to what holiday and country they represent. We will then label the items with a tag stating that information. These items will not be returned, they will be kept to be reused in following years.


Also, in keeping the spirit of giving alive, we will be having a New Hat and Glove/Mitten Drive. The items can be for children or adults. When the drive is over we will donate them to needy families in our community. You may begin to bring in your items after the Thanksgiving Break (Tuesday, November 30th up until December 16th.The items can be sent with your child or dropped off in the office.


Thank you for helping us continue our tradition!

PLAYGROUND USE AFTER SCHOOL

The elementary school playgrounds have been reserved for the Community Education and Recreation Department Kids Club Programs Monday through Friday from the final afternoon bell until 5:00 pm. For the safety of all children, we are asking that non-Kids Club students refrain from using the playgrounds until after 5 pm on weekdays. Thank you.

MASK REMINDERS

As we continue to require masks for students, please remember the following:

  • It’s a good idea to wash your child’s mask frequently, ideally daily if possible.

  • Please ensure that your child has a few masks to rotate throughout the average school week

  • Please send an extra mask in your child’s backpack in the event they need another mask

  • When choosing masks for your child, please look for masks that have 2 or more layers of breathable fabric, cover their nose and mouth, fit snugly across the sides of their face, and don’t have gaps.


If you need help with getting additional masks, please contact the school’s main office.

LUNCH MENU UPDATES & SWAPPED ITEMS

Our FPS Food Service Department is currently experiencing a number of changes in food supply offerings due to shortages or certain items. If you have a child that has certain dietary needs or restrictions, please review the online Nutrislice menu offerings for your building more closely so you can be aware of any food items that may have been swapped. Our Food Service staff is updating the menu daily with changes and they expect regular updates and food replacements for the foreseeable future.

LOST & FOUND

Click here to see pictures of the items in our lost and found. We will be purging lost and found items more often so it’s important for children to keep close tabs on their belongings. It is also suggested that if possible, student items be labeled with the first and last name on it so that we can get it back to the student if it becomes lost. All items not picked up after 2 weeks will be donated.

ATTENDANCE REMINDER

ANY absence including leaving early and arriving late are reported on a google form. HERE is the link to report absences. It would be a good idea to bookmark this link for your convenience.
