Principal's Update

Dear Roadrunner Families,

It was wonderful to see so many families last week at our Family STEAM night with The Works.  There was so much engineering and creativity happening it was fun to see!  Thank you to those of you who were able to join us.  Some families asked about the food.  We catered it from WaZobia Foods and Pastries who serves ethnic food from Nigeria.  The restaurant is loacted at 1025 Currie Avenue North in Minneapolis and is open Tuesday - Sunday from 12 - 9 PM.

Sometimes Robbinsdale Area Schools may need to close school or shift to e-learning due to sub-zero temperatures or a large snowfall.

If your child is going to be tardy or absent from school, please remember to call the school attendance line to report the reason for the absence.  If you don't report the absence, it is recorded as unexcused. After 3 unexcused absences you will automatically receive an attendance letter. To prevent this from happening, call the Neill Attendance Line (763-504-7410) each day your child is absent.  For more information see the Rdale Attendance Policy
