School Year 2020-21

Robertson County Schools is pleased to announce the main features of our reopening plan for the fall of 2020.

We have received feedback from almost 5,000 families representing over 8000 of our students. We have also heard from a majority of teachers and other faculty and staff. It is encouraging to know that many of our families want their children to return to their school in August, and we are excited to announce that these students will have the opportunity to return to school all day, Monday through Friday. Procedures and protocols are being worked out at this time to keep these students as safe as possible in our school buildings and on our school busses.

The feedback from our community also tells us that many of our families are concerned about sending their students back to a school in August. For this reason, Robertson County Schools will be offering a virtual option to parents and students who would like that choice. This option will also be available to those students who are absent from school for an extended amount of time due to COVID19.

Registration is open July 16th – July 24th Parents and guardians will register their students through Power School and select which learning option they want for their student.

For students returning for the 5 day a week in school option the following applies to you. A staggered start to the school year for students (grades 1-12) is approved according to the schedule below:

Wednesday, August 12

Students whose last names begin with A-G
