John Groenke brings a broad range of principal experiences across the K-12 spectrum to our district.
Students thrive when there are strong partnerships between family, school and community.
We offer clubs and other extra-curricular activities – from chess club to yearbook to theatre to athletics.
The August and September health data shows a downward trend in reported COVID-19 numbers. This means we are preparing for a potential shift in our learning model for early childhood, elementary, middle and high school students, beginning Monday, Oct. 19.
Join us for a virtual information session to learn more about how Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) can help you and your children get to know other families, even while our communities are physically apart.

SMS Chromebook Exchange Events
Is your family in need of a hotspot? Our district will be providing hotspots to families who do not currently have quality internet access.
Families who prefer to not have their student(s) take the school bus to or from school (if the district is in hybrid or in-person learning) have the choice to opt-out of transportation services for the 2020-2021 school year. Opting out is completely voluntary.
While we will begin our school year in a Distance Learning PLUS model, we will continue to prepare for hybrid or in-person learning. Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the District's plan may shift throughout the year. As we continue to work with our principals and staff, we would like to share the following updates.
Your 6th- grade student will receive a brand new Chromebook to use this upcoming school year! This applies only to students entering 6th grade at Plymouth Middle School, Robbinsdale Middle School and Sandburg Middle School or students beginning 5th or 6th grade at FAIR School Crystal. We have two device swap events scheduled, where your student will turn in their old Chromebook and charger, and receive a new device.
