Update from Dr. Causey (April 16, 2020)

Good Evening,

This is Dr. Chris Causey, Director of Schools. Based on Governor Lee’s recommendation, Robertson County Schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year. We understand that this decision involves the postponement of many end of the year activities. Please know, that graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020 will take place. We will be sending out date options soon so that families can begin setting their calendars. Many events including proms, senior recognitions and other important occasions will be rescheduled for a time in which it is safe for students and guests. Details will be communicated as they are developed. Our feeding program and academic resources and lessons will continue until May 22nd. The school year is not over even though the buildings may be closed. Your teachers and others will continue to communicate with you, provide learning opportunities, and ensure your nutritional needs are met during this time.

Lastly, I would like to say to our seniors how truly sorry I am for the way the end of your last year as a Robertson County student has transpired. We are so proud of you as you get ready to graduate and move on to the next chapter of your life. I look forward to the day when I shake your hand, give you your diploma, and watch you as you move your tassel. That day will come.

Blessings to you all, and we will continue to be in touch.
