Since the week of January 23, 2023, West Fargo Public Schools has been forced to cancel multiple bus routes each week. Due to the chronic bus driver shortage, WFPS will unfortunately need to continue cancelling routes each week for the foreseeable future. A schedule of all district bus routes was randomly generated to determine the order in which routes will be cancelled; click HERE to view the schedule.
The official determination of how many and which routes will be cancelled each week will be made and communicated to impacted families and schools no later than 5:00PM every Wednesday.
It is the district’s hope that the driver situation improves; efforts are being made to recruit regular route drivers as well as individuals (including existing coaching staff) interested in driving activity routes. If you or someone you know (including current staff members) is interested in driving a route before school, after school, or for activities, please contact our Director of Transportation, Brad Redmond, to discuss possibilities. There is no simple solution to this problem; it will take all of us to come up with creative solutions and minimize disruptions to our learners’ routines.

PLEASE SLOW DOWN!
Drop Off: PLEASE be extra careful when dropping your child off in the morning. Pull up as far as you can in the drop off lane. If you pull into the parking lot, you need to park in a spot. DO NOT BLOCK THE AISLES. Remain in your car as your child exits. Do not block the crosswalk and let your child out of the car. Pick Up: PLEASE be extra careful when picking up your child at the end of the day. Pull up as far as you can in the pick up lane. Again, if you pull into the parking lot you need to park in a spot. DO NOT block the aisles.
WE HAVE TOO MANY STUDENTS ARRIVING AT SCHOOL LATE. MOST OF OUR TARDY STUDENTS TELL US THEY'RE RUNNING LATE. THIS IS AN UNEXCUSED TARDY AND IS DOCUMENTED IN THEIR ATTENDANCE. Students who arrive at or after 8:10 are considered tardy and will need to stop in the office for a pass. If your child is tardy a parent will need to come into the office and sign their child in. Do not drop you child off and send them in alone. Please have your child to school on time. It is disruptive to the classroom when a student arrives late. Also, Mr. Shea our Principal does the daily announcements shortly after 8:10 and your child is missing important information for the day.
AFTERNOON PICK UP
Dismissal is at 2:40 and all students need to be picked up no later than 2:50. No students should be left at the school after 2:50. The only exception is if they're in a club or intramurals.
*Kindergarten pick-up is located by the bicycle racks.
Please call the school office at 701-356-5890 before 1:00 if you need to get a message to your child regarding a change to their end of the day dismissal.
PARENTS TO LUNCH
If you would like to join your child for lunch, please call the office before 8:15 AM. Plan on purchasing a school lunch or bringing a lunch from home. Food from a restaurant, candy and pop are not allowed. The cost for an adult lunch is $3.70
