Friday Message & Return to School Info 1/8/2021

Posted January 9, 2021

Good Day,

We are ecstatic to finally be able to see our elementary students in person starting on Monday.  We realize that we have routines that will need to be reviewed but we are confident that Monday will be more than successful. We have rituals set up, physical distancing safeguards, hallway directional traffic flow indicators, handwashing stations, entering and exiting procedures so that we can maintain a healthy school environment.  We are all committed to make Bill Roberts a safe, inviting, and well rounded school where all students can thrive.

Please click on the” Return to School Link” below and read it thoroughly.  It contains a lot of important  information and refreshers about the reopening of the building.  It is essential that we all abide by the plans  and safety guard rails that have been established to keep our entire community healthy. 


Trich, Erik, & Katheryn
