Good Day, 

Our year is off to a fantastic start!  Finally, we hear voices and laughter  in the hallway.  Our classrooms are in full swing with active learning already occurring.  The staff is spending lots of time establishing clear, concise routines  

As we head into week two, please be aware that your children are still adjusting to the routines of returning to school, and many may be tired this weekend.  Help them to get enough sleep so that they are prepared for 

school on Monday.  We have welcomed many new students and their families to Bill Roberts. We need your help in encouraging your kiddos to reach out to the new students here so together we can build new friendships and ease their transition to our school.

Please check out the school’s website and your teachers’ sites to stay up on what is happening in the classrooms. We are working hard in order to get enrichments up and running.  We are still looking to determine who will be in charge of the enrichment programs. Stay tuned.  Here are a few upcoming dates for you to schedule on your calendars.  We would love to see you at these get-togethers.

Breakfast & Lunch

This year, Denver Public Schools will provide breakfast to all students at no charge, regardless of students free or reduced price meal benefit status. Breakfast at Bill Roberts will be served from 7:20-7:40 a.m. in the cafeteria.  

 It is still very important that families continue to complete the Household Application for Student Meal Benefits to determine lunch eligibility status.

The submission and approval of a Household Application for Student Meal Benefits provides advantages beyond eligibility for free or reduced priced meals.  Submitting an application also helps ensure students receive the maximum amount of benefits they are eligible for, including discounts on bus passes and some school fees, such as athletics, and reduced AP testing fees. It ensures schools receive additional resources to support healthy meals for students and after school programs.

Your assistance in completing and submitting the Household Application for Student Meal Benefits is greatly appreciated and has the potential to help our school.  Apply now at

All information provided is confidential and protected.

Lunch Menu can be found at  You will need to select your state (Colorado) and school district (Denver Public Schools)
