HARVEST UPDATE (10-5-2023). All schools will be back in session for the whole district on Monday. Due to the weather, many farmers one both ends of the district are still trying to complete the harvest and many students are still working. Students who have missed or who will miss school due to harvest on either end of the district will still be counted as being absent and count against the 8 day limit each semester; however, the absences will be tracked by the schools. Similar to COVID related absences in the past, students who may exceed the 8 day limit due to harvest work will be able to work closely with the schools and teachers to make up any missed work and will have this taken into consideration by the administration when determining the need to make up time. A form to document harvest related absences can be picked up in the office. It will need to be filled out and then signed by the employer and the student's parents/guardians. If you have questions, please contact your school.
HARVEST BREAK DATES CHANGED. Harvest break will be the weeks of Sept. 18 and Sept. 25 for the north end (as listed on the original calendar). The School Board has changed the dates for harvest for the south end of the District to the weeks of Sept. 25 and Oct. 2 . We hope the weather will cooperate.

NF & AE DELAYED START (4/19/2023). Due to drifting snow on roads, North Fremont and Ashton Elementary will be on a two-hour delayed start this morning. Classes will start at 10:00. This will hopefully give enough time to plow roads and get our students to school safely. Please be safe this morning.
