Facilities Use/Rental

Community Use of Facilities

As a resident of the Robbinsdale Area School District, we are keeping our lights on for you.  In addition to the critical job of preparing our students for a successful future, we strongly believe that schools are a vital resource for everyone in our school community, young and old alike.  That is why the Community Enrichment and Engagement division of Robbinsdale Area Schools schedules and supervises the use of district buildings before and after school and on weekends.  Non-residents are also welcome to rent district facilities.

Indoor Air Quality

To report an indoor air quality concern (temperature, humidity, odor, mold, dust for example) please detail the building condition(s) and symptoms relating to your/your student’s health in writing to the building principal or building manager. Your concern will be forwarded to the building custodian who will perform a detailed investigation, troubleshoot the source and recommendations for a solution. If the problem is not able to be solved, the Buildings & Grounds Department or a vendor will be contracted.

For more information, please see the indoor air quality webpage from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
