  • Whooping Cough (Pertussis)

    Whooping cough (pertussis) is currently an epidemic in Washington. This means we’re seeing many more people sick with this disease than usual. Whooping cough can cause hospitalization and even death for young babies. Older kids, teens, and adults often spread the disease to babies. This is a serious situation.

    Whooping cough spreads very easily by coughing and sneezing. It begins with cold-like symptoms and develops into a bad cough. Coughing spells can be severe, sometimes ending in gagging or vomiting. Some kids also may have a high-pitched “whoop” after they cough, which is how the disease got its common name (although infants may not cough at all, and some teens and adults don’t have a “whoop” after they cough).

    Adults and children may catch whooping cough and spread it to others, even if they were already vaccinated because the vaccine wears off over time.

  • Robertson Rockets are Rock Stars!

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 11/19/2018

    Robertson Elementary recently hosted our annual Special Person Lunch.  This is an event to celebrate Thanksgiving and give families an opportunity to join their student for a meal at school.  We have so many families that look forward to sharing this special meal.  This year, just under 800 people enjoyed this event. Some Robertson staff put together a slide show for our families to view while they ate.  Photos in the slides include students reading “On the Edge” while completing their WIG (Wildly Important Goal), staff and students having fun together and our Leader in Me community outreach projects.  We at Robertson are doing great things.  Go Rockets! Take a peak at the Slide Show of Our Rock Stars! Once you've clicked this link click on "Learn More"

     

    We are thankful

    So many special people
