Yearbook Ordering: Order your 2023-2024 yearbook online at My School Bucks. The cost is $25 for a hard cover, all color page yearbook. Deadline to order is Friday, March 22.
Our school hours are from 8:40am until 3:40pm. We expect students to be in school and on time every day that they are not sick or unable to attend for serious reasons. There are many positive benefits from regular school attendance. If a student is absent from school, we need a parent or guardian to call the school office at (701) 356-2090 before 9:00am. If we have not received a call by that time, we will attempt to call a parent at home or work.
If your student is going to be leaving the school during the day, a parent or guardian must call the school or send a note with your student to give to the office. Your student must check out in the office when they leave and check back in when they return. Parents do not need to come into the school. Students must be responsible for coming to the office without being called at checkout time. We do not like to call students out of classrooms; it is very disruptive to the class.
PICKING UP AND DROPPING OFF STUDENTS
The school parking lot (along 17th Avenue East) has a tendency to become incredibly congested right before the start of the day and again at the end of the school day. Our expectation is that parents will obey the parking signs and abide by the rules of good parking lot etiquette. Traffic needs to be kept moving in the left lane. Parking for five minutes is allowed in the right lane next to the school. At the end of the day when picking up your child, please park in the parking lot. Your cooperation is much needed and appreciated.
The east entrance to the school (off of 9th Street East) is for school bus traffic only between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm. Cars should not use this entrance to pick up or drop off students. This is for the safety of the students.
Parents, it is very important that students leave the building and the school grounds at the end of the day if they are not in after school activities and supervised by an adult. Please help us out by seeing that students have rides home lined up.
