A message from our Principal

Dear Robles Families,

Welcome Back!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you rested, recharged, and are ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted to be a part of this amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.

All signs are pointing to an incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials, and updating student files. Our hard-working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. We indeed are a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring, and high-achieving students.

New Staff

Each year brings positive change. This includes a few additions to our staff. I am very excited to be your new principal. While I am not new to the district or community, I am excited to be back on the Robles Campus, as a partner in your child’s education. Furthermore, it delights us to have several new teachers and staff members joining us. Please help us welcome them warmly to our community.

Student Placement

A great deal of time, effort, and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2022–2023 school year. In-person registration days are July 27 and July 28. You will be able to see your students’ teachers on ParentVue starting August 1 by accessing your ParentVue account. If you have forgotten your password, you will be able to reset it with the forgot password link.

We gave careful consideration to classrooms with input from staff, as well as student learning styles. We have balanced classrooms academically and socially. We structured our class lists to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level. Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities.

Thank you so much for being positive with your child and helping him or her understand that it is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. All our staff works hard to make school a positive experience for all students. The Robles Elementary community is eagerly looking forward to enriching your child’s life. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, peer group, and teacher. We look forward to seeing you at the Meet the Teacher event on August 3.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that Robles Elementary School remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

Warmest Regards,

Dustie Gunn-Ader
