Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is back! While the fair will be held exclusively online this year, we still plan on making it a fun and joyous experience for kids. The Online Fair will include features like: Washington's own online store, games for kids, virtual store walk-through and more. Every dollar you spend will benefit our school directly (25% back in rewards!).

Save these dates and review our school's Fair site.

Fair Dates: November 2 - November 15

We can't wait to "see" you at the Fair!

Inclement Weather

We want your to know that we are committed to keeping our school children safe. When storm conditions develop we must make a decision to hold school or not. This decision is based on weather conditions that exist for the majority of Fargo students. If school is in session and it is your decision that your child should remain at home, that decision will be respected.

If school is called off, automated calls will be made to all families. Local radio and television stations will be notified as early as possible. If storm conditions develop during the day and it is determined that an early dismissal is in the best interest of the students, the media will be notified and principals will proceed with an orderly dismissal of school. Elementary principals will dismiss students consistent with instructions provided on the emergency/weather school closing form.

We appreciate your continued cooperation and understanding in this important matter. Be assured that the well being of your children is the utmost importance to us.
