Parent Survey Request - Climate & Culture

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In an effort to improve practices, Carl Ben Eielson Middle School is conducting a parent survey. We value your opinion and ask that you take the time to complete this online survey. The web survey will be available until Friday, May 13, 2022. To complete the survey, go to our District’s website select where you will see the survey link at the top of the page, or click below:

21-22 Parent Climate & Culture Survey

Please be assured your responses to the survey will be anonymous. Your honest opinion is appreciated. This survey takes no more than 5-8 minutes to complete and it is smartphone compatible, too. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

CBE Administration and Staff



It might feel more like Winter than Spring, but our CBE Spring Picnic is right around the corner! Mr. Wilson is getting the grill ready!

To help us plan for required food quantities, please RSVP by Monday, May 9 at https://forms.gle/fN8AMhC34e4kTacr6.

Print forms will also be provided to students at school this week. Please only submit the online OR print form. Do not submit both. Return of the online RSVP is encouraged.

We look forward to seeing you at the picnic!

A waiver from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has enabled schools across the nation, including Fargo Public Schools, to provide all students free meals since the COVID-19 pandemic first disrupted K – 12 education in March of 2020. The free school meal benefits will expire after the last school day of the 2021 – 2022 school year.

What does this mean for families? In the fall of 2022, meals will return to paid-for status. Families will need to pay full price for student meals or fill out an application to qualify for free or reduced price meals. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available starting July 1, 2022. Applications will be available on the Nutrition Services Department website after that date and will be shared at the start of the 2022-23 school year with families.

School Make Up Day

Due to the weather-related school cancellations on January 14, Fargo Public Schools will use the storm make up day built in to the school calendar. Fargo Public Schools will hold classes on Monday, May 16, 2022 (D-day). This day is now a day that students and staff are expected to be at school.


Good attendance, whether at school or on the job, is very important. If a student must be absent from school, please call Attendance @ (701) 446-1710.

Class attendance will be reported daily by period. It is the intent of the attendance secretary to contact parents at home or work the same day by phone to directly report any class(es) that have been reported as absent.


Lockers are equipped with a combination padlock loaned by the school. Lockers should be kept locked and combinations not shared with other students. Lost or stolen locks will be paid for by the student. The charge for a lost lock is $5.00. Students are responsible for books and personal possessions at all times. STUDENTS ARE ADVISED TO LEAVE VALUABLES AT HOME.

Nurse Notes - Attention current 6th grade families

The North Dakota law 23-07-17.1 requires immunizations before admission to school. Immunizations required for 6th graders before entering 7th grade are Tdap and MCv4. If your child has had these immunizations, please bring your record to the school office. If not, please receive the needed immunizations. The immunizations can be received at your private physician’s office, or through Fargo Cass Public Health. The Fargo Cass Public Health phone number to schedule an appointment is 701-241-1383. These immunizations are a requirement to be in school. If your student doesn’t have the required vaccines, your student could possibly be excluded from school. Additional note, in case of a disease epidemic, children not meeting the immunization guidelines with an exemption form on file would not be able to attend school until there is no longer any danger of further spread of the disease in question.

Thank you,

Cheri Koch RN (school nurse Carl Ben)
