Late Starts & Closing Make Up Information

UPDATE 4/22/19: Governor Burgum has officially forgiven the two additional snow days, April 11th and 12th, that occurred after our first waiver was submitted. No further weather related make up days will be required this year, therefore the last day of school will be May 23, 2019.
UPDATE 2/25/19: School will be in session for the full day on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, instead of an early dismissal day for staff professional development that was previously scheduled. This make up day is in addition to the already scheduled make up days of March 15th, April 22nd, and May 23rd.
