In effort to keep our parents informed, we want to let you know that the Franklin County Sheriff's Department contacted Robertsville Elementary this afternoon to request the school use their "Lock Out" procedures due to a non-school related situation in the Robertsville area. The matter lasted about 15 minutes due to the Sheriff's Department's quick actions. Officials lifted the "Lock Out" allowing the school to resume their normal activities. We appreciate Franklin County Sheriff Department's notification and brick response to the matter. A ​“Lockout” is put in place to keep everyone indoors, keep all exterior doors locked, increase situational awareness, but school business should continue as usual.

Technology is not just about what tools are provided, but how those tools are used. Instructional technology expands the learning environment, engages students, and enables them to create, communicate, collaborate, and think critically. Coleman Elementary first grades learned how to use their device safely thanks to a lesson provided by the Technology Department. Pacific Intermediate fifth grade students created a blog using the writing process. By using the writing process, students went through several distinct steps to develop and expand their ideas. "Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them." Bill Gates

Governor Parson has issued a proclamation declaring this week "Parent and Family Involvement in Education Week". This week is to recognize that involvement in a child's education is a major factor in determining success in school, regardless of the socio-economic status, race, or ethnic background of the family, or the education level of the parents. Great ways to get involved in your child's education is through Parents as Teachers program, joining a PTO, Band Boosters, volunteering to be a Watch DOG Dad, and attending parent conferences. #MVNation

Safety First.. A new year brings changes to routes & ridership. School buses may run slow the first few days of school as students are learning where and when to board the appropriate bus. Your understanding is appreciated as our bus drivers take a little extra time to establish bus routines. Our Transportation Dept. will be monitoring and adjusting capacity, routes, and times as needed over the next few weeks. Your patience is appreciated as our focus is on getting students to and from school in a safe and efficient manner. As always, we encourage citizens to watch for buses and be sure to stop while they are loading and unloading students.
