Robinson Elementary opened in September 1959, and is one of two schools in the Raytown C-2 District named for persons who made significant differences in Raytown. The 32 acres on which Robinson stands was the gift of the Luther Robinson family. Mr. Robinson was a prominent business person in the community and served on the school board for 27 years. He was born on the exact site of the school. Current Robinson students have the Racoon as their mascot

As part of the district's efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology and maintain fiscal responsibility, the district has transitioned from paper to electronic flier (eflier delivery). To publicize content that supports the basic educational mission of the district and/or benefits the population of the district in a positive manner, the Raytown C-2 School District uses Peachjar, a free online service for schools, to post approved efliers so that they are accessible to parents, staff and students as wanted/needed.

Kansas City’s mask mandate expired on Jan. 1, 2022. Masking is now encouraged but optional for all students and staff. Masks are still federally mandated to be worn on public transportation; therefore, we will continue to require masks on all district transportation including school buses.
