2020-21 Snow Day Procedures

2020-21 Snow Day Procedures

After careful consideration, Fargo Public Schools (FPS) will do the following if our weather prevents us from having school:

  • School will be cancelled for the first one to two snow days that fall Monday through Thursday. If there is a snow day on a preplanned Friday distance learning day, distance learning will occur. If one to two snow days occur, we will make up the days on either April 30 and or May 17.
  • Any additional snow days after two days will either be a distance learning day at home or will be cancelled and the makeup requirement waived.

For more information about the 2020-2021 snow day procedures, visit the FPS school cancellation process webpage.

Dr. Gandhi also put together this #FPSLearns video to supplement this communication.

Updates:

Hello Lincoln Families,

Starting on November 16th FPS and Lincoln are asking that students do not use the masks that have vents in them or the Gater type of mask. We are following the guidance from Cass Public Health and new recommendations. Students will have access to a mask break zone at recess time as students are also being asked to continue to wear masks during their recess time. Thank you for your help in keeping all students protected.

Lincoln Title 1

Title I: What you Need to Know

As a Title I school, Lincoln Elementary receives federal funds for Title I programs that are part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). As a recipient of these funds, Lincoln Elementary has committed itself to providing enriching learning activities for its stakeholders and sharing responsibility with both parents and students to improve academic achievement, as outlined in the School-Parent Compact. Additionally, Lincoln Elementary is required to notify parents of particular components outlined in the law. Through the Interactive Dashboard, parents are able to be notified regarding the performance measures outlined in the state’s accountability system. The Parents Right to Know document is also a valuable resource as it lays out what information parents have the right to request and ascertain from the school regarding topics like the professional qualifications of staff, state and local policy, and parental rights regarding student participation in mandated assessments. Additionally, the District School Parent and Family Engagement Policy outlines what actions FPS and the school will be taking to provide effective parent and family engagement activities to improve student achievement and school performance. Copies of each of these documents can be found below, and you are encouraged to read through them.
