In-person Learning Reminders

Do not forget to complete the DPS DAILY HEALTH SCREEN on your student.

You will need your child’s Student ID number for this screen.

Remember that the purpose of this is to complete an honest evaluation of the health of your children and of yourself.  It allows each of us to be reflective and really think about how we are feeling. This affects the entire community; please make the right choice of when to keep your children home from school.

Late students/Early pick up information HERE.

Please remember:


-No dogs on school grounds.

-Follow health guidelines for sending kids to school or keeping them home.

Please report a positive COVID test

All positive cases must be reported including students and staff who are learning or working remotely.

Calling All 5th Grade Parents!

Come to a Virtual Bill Roberts Middle School Mixer on November 12th! MS Mixers are informal gatherings with Dr. Cohen hosted by a current MS parent during which we enjoy a mix of fun, drinks and MS discussion. This adult-only evening is open to current 5th grade Bill Roberts parents/guardians.

These events will now be held through zoom.  We are still limiting the number to ten to keep it small to make it easier to ask questions, etc.   We know this limits the number of people that can attend.  We will be adding more mixers soon!  If you sign up, we will send you a zoom link for the event via email.

Space will be very limited. Learn more and RSVP HERE!

To Our 5th Grade Families: You are 100% guaranteed a spot next year for Bill Roberts Middle School if you select BR as choice #1. Every student going into 6th grade must fill out a DPS Choice Form in February.
