The Fergus Falls Public School is excited to welcome the 2031 graduating class!  We will be hosting a Back to School event at McKinley August 29 from 5-7 pm.  Please plan on stopping by to meet your child's teacher!  It is an open house, so come when you can.  Your child is invited to bring his / her supplies along, and you will have the opportunity to add funds to your child's lunch account if you wish to do so.   

What will you need to bring Wednesday, August 29 (if you have not already done so)?
  • Your registration forms  - filled out
  • A photocopy of your child's birth certificate
  • A completed immunization form
Things you should know: 

We will be offering all day EVERY DAY kindergarten  for the 2018-2019 school year.  Parents can choose the "All Day Every Day" option, the "Morning Only" option, or  the  "M-W-F" option.  Please note that if you choose the "Morning Only" option, you will need to provide transportation from school at noon.  Contact us if you have any questions.  We would love to be able to help you make this  important decision for your child.  998-0544 ext. 1500

Breakfast is provided everyday at no cost to kindergarten students.  Your family can decide if this is something you would like to participate in.  Milk will also be provided  by the school during snack time.  

School begins at 8:25 and ends at 3:07.  If your child will be riding the bus this year, we STRONGLY encourage you have them ride the first few days / weeks while there are plenty of adult helpers to help them navigate the transition.
