Dear Noble Families,

Thank you for your continued patience and perseverance as we move forward with Distance Learning PLUS. As a reminder, we will remain working in this learning model for the foreseeable future. We will not transition to a hybrid or in-person learning model until there is a consistent decline in COVID cases. Robbinsdale Area Schools will continue to monitor the data, and to consult with the regional team of health experts on a regular basis.

As the COVID-19 pandemic looms in our state and in the world, we wish for you all health and safety. Please call us at Noble if you have any questions regarding health, technology, attendance, academic assistance, or any other concerns. Our Student and Family Support Center number is (763) 504-4043. You can reach the Noble office at (763)504-4000.

Be well, everyone!

Sincerely,

Principal Michael Rieckenberg
