School News

COVID reporting form

Students and staff during school, students participating in district-sanctioned athletics, activities, performances and events, across all grade levels, will be subject to Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) COVID-19 protocols. These guidelines are different from the updates the district made earlier this week.

Temporary shift to distance learning

We had hoped to continue with in-person learning without disruption, but many of our staff have tested positive or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. As a result, all district schools will shift to distance learning beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, through Friday, Jan. 21. Students will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, Jan. 25.

Thank a staff member

The district is changing two days on the 2021-22 school calendar due to educational challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In-person school will not take place on Friday, Jan. 14, and Friday, Feb. 18, 2022. Instead, students will engage in learning activities from home.

School Buses

During winter break, families will receive postcards from transportation with updated bus route information. They will be sent through the U.S. Postal Service to your address on record.

Robbinsdale Area Schools dismissing early Friday, Dec. 10

To help with worsening road and travel conditions, Robbinsdale Area Schools will dismiss all grade levels early today, Friday, Dec. 10, due to heavy snowfall. In addition, all afternoon and evening activities are canceled. 

Winter weather

Winter’s coldest months are nearly upon us, so this is a good time to remind families that sometimes Robbinsdale Area Schools may be forced to close school because of extreme temperatures or significant snow.

Be sure to visit the district’s weather closing website to learn more about the process that goes into determining if a school closure is necessary, as well as the ways you’ll be notified about cancelations.
