    All classes for the 2019 summer school sessions will be held at West Fargo High School at 801 9th St E, West Fargo, ND.  Due to the condensed schedule, student attendance is required for all 10 days of the session.  Classes are from 8:00 AM – 2:30 PM, Monday – Friday of each session. 

    Students not currently enrolled at a West Fargo Public School must also return the Out of District Parent Registration Form to West Fargo High School.

    Summer School Administrators Sheyenne HS: Dr. Pam Cronin West Fargo HS: Dr. Jennifer Fremstad


    All classes are at West Fargo High School. Transportation will be provided from Sheyenne High School, leaving the front of the building at 7:30AM and arriving at West Fargo High School by 7:50AM. The shuttle will return students to Sheyenne immediately following the end of summer school class. No other transportation is provided for regular summer school classes.

    Daily Schedule

    Classes begin promptly at 8:00 AM and dismiss at 2:30 PM Students will be given one break and lunch during the day:

    • 9:45 AM – 10:00 AM - a snack with milk or juice will be provided free of charge
    • 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM - one lunch option will be provided free of charge. No items will be available for purchase (except vending machines).

    Closed Campus

    Students will not be allowed to leave the building during the day, unless permission is given by administration. This includes lunch. Snacks and lunch will be provided at no charge.


    Summer school covers a large amount of material in a short amount of time; this makes regular attendance crucial. Due to the condensed schedule, attendance is required all 10 days unless an emergency occurs.

    Student Behavior

    Summer school differs markedly from the regular school term in that participation of students is entirely voluntary. Any student who, through tardiness, absenteeism, poor work habits or classroom disturbance, distracts from the summer school experience instead of adding to it, will be sent home and dropped from the course.


    Students may not use lockers during summer school.


    Session 1: June 3 – 14, 2019

    Session 2: June 17 - 28, 2019

    Immunization Requirements:

    For the 2019-2020 school year, the North Dakota Department of Health School Immunization Requirements have been updated to require a second dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) for students entering eleventh or twelfth grade. All eleventh and twelfth grade students will need proof of two doses of MCV4 before returning to school in the fall. Students must be 16 years of age to receive the second dose.

    MCV4 protects against meningococcal disease. Meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection that can cause meningitis, and possibly lead to death or permanent disability within hours of the first symptoms.  Meningococcal disease is contagious and can be very serious in young people.

    Please schedule an appointment with your child’s health care provider or your local public health department today.  Please have your child receive this booster prior to the start of school year.  Also remember to bring the documentation to school so it can be added to your child’s records.

    Below are the required Immunizations for the 2019-20 School Year:


    GRADES 7-10

    GRADES 11

    Grade 12





    Hepatitis B












    Varicella (Chickenpox)




    Meningococcal (MCV4)









    Information for Self-Administration of Over the Counter Medication for 2019-20:

    Self-administration of over the counter medication (i.e. Tylenol, Ibuprofen) requires a parent and student signature (no physician signature needed).  However, if the dosage is above the recommended dose on the bottle, it will require a physician signature.  Prescription medication that is self- administered will still need a physician, parent, and student signature.

    A copy of the Medication Policy and associated forms are posted on the district website under the Families link and health services tab.

    If you have any questions, please refer them to the School Nurse.

Notes from Administrators


    Posted by Lisa Hoard on 10/22/2018 10:00:00 AM


    Property theft seems to be one of our bigger issues as of right now. However, most of the thefts that have occurred are preventable.   Unfortunately, property and valuables do end up going missing at times. This usually occurs when a student doesn’t take the time to lock up their property. 


    • Parents please remind your student to lock their property up in the lockers provided to them
    • If they have their phone with them at school, please remind them to keep it on them



    Vaping is also an issue at school.  Even if a student is eighteen years of age, they are prohibited from having a device or any tobacco products on school grounds.  Any device  found on campus will be seized. Any student under the age of eighteen is subject to a fine.  All students found to be in possession of a device and/or tobacco products will be subject to school consequences.


    • I encourage all parents to read up on Vaping and the products that are out there
    • Talk to your student about Vaping and the dangers of it
    • Teens who Vape are much more likely to become smokers
