Dear Robbinsdale Area Schools Parents and Guardians:

I hope this message finds you well.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this extraordinary winter, with extremely cold temperatures in January and record-breaking snowfall in February. After listening to our staff and parents regarding the need for more instructional time, please be advised Monday April 8, 2019 has been changed to an instructional day, instead of the flexible learning/professional development day originally planned. Students will be expected to attend school on April 8, 2019; this will be a regular school day, following usual bus times and class schedules.

This scheduling change will allow our district to be on track with state-mandated student contact hours. Should we experience any additional school cancellations due to inclement weather, e-Learning will be implemented (up to two days) to avoid the need to add days to the end of the school year.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact your child's school principal.
