All Robbinsdale District Schools Shift to Distance Learning Starting Jan. 18
Two Robbinsdale District schools already made the switch to distance learning. Now the entire district is making the shift.
All Robbinsdale Area Schools will shift to distance learning starting Tuesday, Jan. 18, and continue online through Jan. 21. Students are scheduled to return to in-person learning Tuesday, Jan. 25.
The district previously shifted Armstrong High School and Sandburg Middle School to online learning, citing a high number of COVID-19 cases among students and staff. In an updated release, school officials say there has been an “unprecedented spike” in the number of absences among students and staff across the district.
School officials say they “simply can’t provide adequate in-person learning or services with our growing level of staff absences.” In addition, the district says many students have tested positive or are experiencing symptoms.
“We have an obligation to the safety of our students, staff and community to do everything we can to help slow the spread of the virus,” read a letter to district families.
