  • Robinson Family Newsletter - September 27, 2020


    Hi everybody-

    I have had many families email or call and ask if/when we are returning to school. I wanted to share the information that I've told them with all of our families.

    As we continue to see decreases in the spread of COVID 19, our primary focus is creating a phased-in approach to return to in-person learning with continued safety measures in place. We are working with K-5 teachers, staff members, and administrators to develop a plan for our elementary schools to bring to the Board of Education for approval during the Board meeting on Monday, September 28. All Board meetings are conducted virtually via a webinar and can be found at Our webinar license only covers 1,000 viewers. We also stream the board meetings live on the Kirkwood School District’s YouTube Channel. Link.

    The District will send out information to all families and staff members immediately after the vote by the Board of Education.

    I anticipate that I will have a special report newsletter for families and staff next week once we know more. I would rather over communicate than not share the information in a timely manner.

    Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or if we can provide your family any support.

    Take Care-

  • Kirkwood High School has Seven Seniors Named as National Merit Semifinalists and Five Named Commended Students

    KHS seniors Sabrina Baggstrom, Lillian Bartin, Jonathan Henry, Zoe Krug, Rayhana Niyogi, Jonathan Plants, and Daniel Tobias were named in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. They are among some 16,000 Semifinalists announced nationwide and representing less than one percent of high school seniors in the U.S. Over 1.5 million students were entered into the competition as juniors by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Semifinalists were the highest-scoring entrants in each state, and the number chosen from each state is proportional to its share of graduating seniors in the U.S.
