In response to the school shooting in Texas

There are no words that help express the profound sadness, hopelessness or anger we’re collectively feeling in the wake of another school shooting. These emotions are especially heavy on this rainy Wednesday afternoon as we learn more details about the tragedy and about the lives who were lost due to this violent act.

All families with students enrolled in Robbinsdale Area Schools must fill out a bus transportation form for the 2022-23 school year. If you haven’t already, please complete a form for each student by May 20, 2022.

Robbinsdale Powwow

Ask anyone who has attended a powwow and they will likely describe the amazing sights and sounds they witnessed. They might tell you how they heard drum beats that matched the rhythm of their hearts. Or that the skilled and graceful dancers wore beautiful and elaborate regalia (traditional clothing) crafted with vibrant colors as they circled the dance area.
