They will continue to use them in class but will no longer be bringing them home after the 10th.

Replacements for the cords or chargers will not be accepted. All fees associated with any damage or missing items will need to be paid at that time.
Hello Osgood Families,
We updated our Return to Learn document. Here a few key changes and we will also post the full chart for your viewing.
- Students now have the option of wearing their masks under their chin during outdoor recess.
- We are still limiting non-essential visitors/volunteers in the building.
- Students are now able to sing softly in class.
Thanks for you do!
The West Fargo Public School district implemented a student bus tracking system, (RFID card program), four years ago. The program is intended to help the district staff account for elementary students as they access our school bus services. The system tracks where, when and which bus a student boards and exits. This valuable information is used to find lost students and gives the district an easily accessible list of students in the event the bus breaks down or is involved in a traffic accident.
Student Expectations: The district expects each student who rides a general education bus on a regular basis to have a RFID card attached to their backpack. The student is expected to scan their RFID card each time they board and exit a bus.
Morning Drop Off - If your child is having breakfast you may drop them off no earlier than 7:30 am. There is no supervision before that time unless they attend the morning YMCA program. If they are not having breakfast we ask that they arrive no earlier than 7:45 and be in the classroom by 8:00 to help with the physically distancing of students. Thank you with your help in this matter.
**Breakfast is only served from 7:30 am to 7:50 am
**Pick Up - We will be doing a gradual release of parent pick up this year. Due to the busyness at dismissal time we are asking parents that if you need to pick your child up early please do so by 2:15 so that we can get your child to you before we start our dismissal procedures. Thank you for your cooperation.

Upon this request, you will receive a detailed explanation of the licensing, education, and experience of each of our teachers. You will also receive information regarding the names and qualifications of the paraprofessionals at our school(s).
Osgood Elementary is recognized as a schoolwide Title 1 school. Every year, the administration and staff review the school’s data to determine a schoolwide focus. We then set goals and activities for the upcoming school year. All information is compiled and considered for review and used to make informed decisions that are best for Osgood students. These plans are laid out in continuous improvement goals that Osgood Elementary staff will work on throughout the school year. Information is collected from various sources including, but not limited to, parent, staff and student surveys, demographic data, achievement data, program data and perception data. The following goals are our focus for the 2020 – 2021 school year.
Osgood Elementary Schoolwide Goals
Goal 1: 70% of students will be reading at their BAS level by May 2021.
Goal 2: 75% of students will be at the 40th percentile or higher on the STAR test
by May 2021.
Goal 3: 90% of students will receive 0-1 behavior referrals by May 2021.
School starts at 8:00 am.
Students that are tardy to school lose valuable educational and instruction time. Walking in late to class repeatedly can create a disruption to the class and draws unnecessary attention to students. Arriving at school on time and ready to learn is key to the success of all students. We only want what is best for all students and feel powerless to provide them with the education they need and deserve when they are tardy. As you know, it takes parents, students, and teachers working together to ensure a suitable learning environment for your child. Please help us by making it to school on time a priority. If you have any questions please feel free to call the school at 356-2190. Thank you for your cooperation.
The next PTO meeting is Monday, May 10th from 6:30 to 7:30 via Zoom.
