If you have any doctor's notes due to being seen by a medical provider, please bring them to the school office and their absence will be excused. Attendance does matter.

DRESS FOR NORTH DAKOTA'S COLD WEATHER
North Dakota winter weather can be very cold and very unpredictable. To ensure children are best prepared and protected for this weather, we ask that families send all children to school with adequate winter apparel.
For students’ safety, they should leave their residence each morning with a winter jacket, mittens or gloves, a cap, and closed-toed shoes or boots. For children with a scheduled recess, snow pants, boots, and scarves are encouraged, and may be required by their school. Additionally, children’s’ bare legs should be protected from exposure to the cold; shorts, capris, and dresses or skirts (without leggings or tights) should be limited to warm weather days.
If your child tends to feel cold throughout the school day, they are encouraged to wear long sleeves, sweaters, or sweatshirts.
It is advised that any cold weather apparel, including sweatshirts and sweaters, be labeled with the child’s name. Names can be written with a permanent marker on most items’ size tags, brand label, or care tag. Labeling your child’s materials ensures they can be easily returned if lost and/or found.
The health and safety of our students is of the upmost importance to us at West Fargo Public Schools. If you need assistance providing your child with winter gear, please contact the school office for support.
