  • PARENTS- IMPORTANT INFO ON LOST AND FOUND ITEMS

    OUR LOST AND FOUND IS BUSTNG AT THE SEAMS!  With nearly 400 students and limited space, time and resources to keep this area safe and clean, we can’t continue to store the number of unclaimed items that are accumulating in the Lost & Found location. We will be donating any unclaimed items that are currently in the Lost & Found December 23. If you have not come to the school to retrieve any missing items, they will be gone December 23. After the holiday break, we will be packing up all Lost & Found unclaimed items up at the end of EACH month and donating them.    

    If you would like to look through the lost and found, parents are welcome to come before or after school. We appreciate you adhering to these times (7:30-8:00 and 2:40-3:30).   Any unclaimed items will be donated at the end of each month. 

    HERE ARE WAYS YOU CAN HELP:  Label everything with your child’s name! When an item is found, it can be quickly returned to the owner.  Please talk to your child(ren) and encourage them to keep track of their belongings, especially after PE class or recess. Teach them how to gather their items at the end of the school day. Provide a bag for snow gear to be used to transport to and from school.  Reusable cloth grocery bags or large totes with zippers work great for this.  Consider having a reward system at home that encourages your child to bring items home such as “If you bring your missing sweatshirt home, you can have 10 minutes of extra time on your iPad.”   Click here for more great tips on keeping your child organized.

  • MASK POLICY ON THE BUS

    Federal law requires anyone using public transportation, which school buses are considered, to be masked while onboard. If a student boards the bus without a mask, one will be provided to them. If your student is a bus rider, please send them with a mask and/or encourage them to wear their mask consistently and correctly while on the bus. Since the driver is often the only adult onboard, your help in encouraging mask-wearing would be greatly appreciated!

  • YOUTH PATRIOTIC SOCIETIES

    Effective for the 2021-22 school year, North Dakota Century Code requires schools to allow “youth patriotic societies” access to students during school hours. This new law means that representatives from groups like the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts must be given the opportunity to speak with all students in grades K-5 this fall. To ensure equitable access that does not take away from learning, each group will be given no more than five minutes to share about their organization. These presentations may be scheduled during class time, lunchtime, recess, or as part of an assembly that is already planned; the scheduling will be done at the principals’ discretion, in alignment with the legal requirements.

    Once we have established a presentation schedule with a youth patriotic society, it will be shared here in this newsletter and/or SeeSaw. If you would prefer that your child not participate in these presentations, please contact your child's teacher.
