School News

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.

Principal Announcement

With mixed emotions, I am announcing my departure from Sandburg – but not from Robbinsdale Area Schools. I accepted the districtwide position of Executive Director of Student Services, a cabinet position that has been vacant for the past 18 months.

Sandburg to shift to distance learning Jan. 6-17

Due to the current number of positive and symptomatic COVID cases among students and staff at our school, we're going to be shifting to distance learning beginning Thursday, Jan. 6, through Monday, Jan. 17. Students will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, Jan. 18.
