REGISTRATION SUPPORT SESSION START THURSDAY, APRIL 7
West Fargo Public Schools has scheduled registration support sessions between April - August to assist families in the registration process.
Registration allows parents/guardians to update emergency contact information, medical records, and permission forms. It also confirms a student's enrollment for the upcoming year, allowing them to be placed in the applicable class(es).
Families requiring technical assistance in the registration process are invited to attend one of the schedule support sessions to complete online student registration for 2022 – 2023.
To register for a support session, please contact the district’s registrar, Kylie Hess, at (701) 499-1067.
The first registration support session is scheduled for Thursday, April 7 from 4:00PM - 6:00PM at L.E. Berger Elementary School.
Health Information Reminder
At the end of this school year, West Fargo Public School Nursing staff will be mailing the 2022-2023 health paperwork for students who have conditions such as allergies, asthma, seizures, diabetes, or any other medical concern that would require medication and/or nursing intervention. This paperwork is required every year and must be updated for our system. Please reach out to Nurse Courtenay Misheski (email@example.com) if you have any questions and/or concerns regarding your child’s allergies/medical condition and required paperwork for the 2022-2023 school year.
Also, if your student has medication in the school’s office, whether it is prescription or over the counter, it must be picked up by a parent/guardian by Wednesday June 1st, 2022. If not picked up by this date, the medication(s) will be discarded.
Grab your Hawk gear now!
We will be wearing our Hawk gear every Friday and we are asking our community to join us and show Hawk Pride!
When students are leaving for an appointment during the school day they need to come to the office and check out.
Water Bottle Reminder
Please remember to bring your Water Bottle everyday
Masks During School
West Fargo Public Schools is starting the school year as masks recommended for unvaccinated students and staff. If you would like your child to wear a mask during the day, please let your child’s teacher know. Our staff will work with your child to consistently and correctly wear their mask during the day, similar to how we work with students that need to wear glasses. If your child has difficulty wearing their mask consistently and correctly, or outright refuses, their teacher will setup a meeting with you to discuss how we can continue to best support your desire for your child to be masked while at school.
Masks on 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!
Where/how do I drop an item off for a student?
Please only drop off necessary items when needed. All items should be dropped off in the main office, clearly labeled with the student’s first and last name (except for medications, which should go to the Nurse). Any floral or balloon deliveries will be held in the main office until the end of the day, when the student will be informed of the delivery and may come pick it up. Singing telegrams or similar deliveries are disruptive to the classroom learning environment and will not be accepted. We do not accept outside food orders/deliveries. Students may elect to bring in their own sack lunch or they have the option to eat school lunch.
