Dear Fargo Public School Families,


Our winter weather has caused a high number of school closures this year. This email is to provide our families with a plan for the remainder of the school year if additional school closings are needed.


The first weather-related closing needed between now and our planned school break of March 17-18, school will be closed. The day will be waived and not made up by students. Teaching staff will utilize this day to prepare for future remote learning days. Any closing after the transition date or after March 18, school buildings will close and staff and students will transition to remote learning.


Schools will prepare for students to start bringing home their school-issued device so they can be used for a possible remote learning day. In addition to teaching our students how to bring their device to and from school and how to take care of their device at home, we will also make sure that students have access to their coursework and teacher.

If your home does not have Internet access that would be available for your child during a remote learning day, please contact your student’s school office. We can work with you to explore options for home internet access.


In the event remote learning is needed, a schedule will be provided to families for the remote learning day. Remote learning would include synchronous and asynchronous learning during the day.


Our staff members are now preparing for a possible shift to virtual learning due to inclement weather. More information will be provided as plans are made and carried out.

Thank you for your understanding during this year of an unusually high amount of inclement weather days. Please continue to reach out to your student’s school administration with any questions you have.


Sincerely,


Dr. Rupak Gandhi, Superintendent
