Dear Caroline Family:

As you may know, a horrific tragedy took place in Uvalde, Texas yesterday. Our hearts are with the educators, students and families of Robb Elementary School, as well as the entire Uvalde community during this tragic time.

It is understandable that our students may be struggling with this news. Please remember that we have support services in place, and these may be accessed through your school counselor. 

Please be assured that we continually work to enhance the safety and security of our schools through strong partnerships with the Caroline County Sheriff’s Department and other essential agencies. We remain grateful to the Caroline County Commissioners and the Caroline County Board of Education for their ongoing commitment to funding School Resources Officers (SRO) on every campus. 

Finally, as you go about your day, please hold the Robb Elementary School Family in your thoughts and in your hearts.


Dr. Derek L. Simmons, Superintendent
