Posted May 7, 2021
This week we held welcome orientations for next year’s Kindergarten and 6th-grade classes. It was so inspiring to see the excitement on the faces of all the new students that will soon join our Roberts community, hopefully in a more typical year. As educators, it allows us to look beyond the busy weeks of one school year winding down and look forward to what the following year may bring.
A few Class Happenings:
Thank you all for the outpouring of love during Teacher Appreciation Week. The flowers, cards and special wishes had the entire staff smiling all week long! We appreciate you and your support.
Enjoy the weekend, Happy Mother’s Day!!

Families are being asked to let Transportation Services know if they would like to utilize their transportation by “Opting in” through the Transportation Opt-in Program for next year. Students will be automatically opted-out if you are a bus rider and you do not complete this. If your student would like to utilize their transportation eligibility, families must log in to the Parent Portal to opt their students in.
What families need to do NOW
Log into the Parent Portal
Navigate to the Transportation page, where you’ll find Opt-In Program form
The default for all students is set to “Opt-out.” If you’d like your student to utilize their transportation eligibility, please switch the toggle to “Opt-in”
Remember to click the “submit” button to save your request
