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.

School Make Up Days

Due to the weather-related school cancellations on January 7 and January 14, Fargo Public Schools will use the storm make up days built in to the school calendar. Fargo Public Schools will hold classes on Monday, April 18, 2022 (E - day) and Monday, May 16, 2022 (D-day). These days are now days that students and staff are expected to be at school.


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)
