Dear Bill Roberts Families,
As we have been communicating with you, DPS has been working diligently and in partnership with superintendents across the state to press our state government to restore education funding to our schools and ensure that our students and our educators receive the supports and compensation they deserve.
The statewide teachers association and the Colorado Education Association, is planning a statewide rally of educators on Friday, April 27, to advocate for greater state funding and expects that many of our teachers will participate. As such, we have been collaborating with our staff on a plan that will have as minimal impact as possible on our students and families.
DPS has decided to schedule an early release day on Friday, April 27. Our schedule will remain the same as any other Friday with minor modifications. The planned early release will not affect student meals. We are committed to feeding every child, every day. On that Friday, the cafeteria will have a variety of sandwiches to select from if students are buying their lunch. The Shakespeare Festival will follow its regular schedule. If you have questions regarding the festival or your individual child’s performance in Shakespeare, please email or call the school and speak with Maureen Hines.
Athletics, After School and Enrichment activities:
District-scheduled athletic games will not be cancelled. Coaches may cancel practices if they choose. All enrichments at Bill Roberts will go on as scheduled. The administration will instruct our teacher run enrichments so that they can participate in the rally if they chose and so that there is not any disruption for families that depend on our after school activities.
All other “Discovery” scheduled enrichments will be on their regular schedule.
Transportation will operate as normal; so we will have bus pick up for dismissal at 1:00 on the 27th.
If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or to call the school at 720-424-2640.
