Announcements & Cancellations

    • 3/30/20: With the recent warmer temperatures, people have been escaping their homes to spend time outdoors in the fresh air. While this is certainly encouraged, please remember that social distancing and being cognizant of “new germs” in environments still applies outdoors. Please do not send your children to the school playgrounds or athletic complexes; we cannot guarantee that they are germ-free, nor could we monitor the size of gatherings to ensure compliance with guidelines. Over the course of this week, the outdoor facilities owned by the district will be signed as CLOSED. While we will not be policing these closures, we hope the signs serve as a reminder to people to stick to outdoor activities that don’t involve surfaces that can spread the virus.

  • Are substitute staff being paid?

    Posted by: Human Resources Department

    We are currently in the midst of determining how we will proceed with online learning if we are not able to return to school as normal next week.  In our online delivery models, we may be able to provide opportunities to engage substitute teachers in various roles as we proceed through the coming weeks.  This will enter into discussion as we continue our planning.

     Regretfully, as for the week of March 16-20, we will not be able to pay any substitutes for day call assignments that were scheduled.  Substitutes currently in long term assignments will be notified by their principals as to their participation in continued efforts to educate students online.

  • Can I volunteer with the district's COVID-19 response?

    Posted by: Public Relations Department

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering with West Fargo Public Schools. At this time, we are following guidance from the CDC and the ND Department of Health to reduce our risk of exposure. This includes limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people and limiting the admittance of new germs into our environments. With that guidance in mind, the district is not utilizing the services of any non-staff members at this time. As this situation continues to evolve and guidance changes, we will let our community know as volunteer opportunities are made available.
