School attendance is very important. If your child needs to be absent or tardy for any reason, please notify the school prior to 8:30. For safety reasons, we need to account for all children.
Students arriving after 9:30 AM or leaving school before 2:00 PM will be counted absent for half a day.
Students arriving to school after 8:35 AM are counted as tardy and need to check in the office before going to class.
If your student needs to leave school before dismissal, it is expected that a parent or guardian come into the building to sign out the student in the office.
Whether due to illness, a family trip, or any other reason, a district letter will be mailed to parents when students have missed 5, 10, 15, or 20 days
of school. It is required by law for the school to report absences that are excessive.
BPS Family Assistance Fund
The Bismarck Public Schools Foundation (BPSF) has established a BPS Family Assistance Fund. Those that wish to donate may do so through the foundation website or by mail. To donate online, go to https://www.bpsfoundation.com/donations/bps-faf/. To donate by mail, send checks to the BPS Foundation at 806 N. Washington St., Bismarck, ND 58501 and write “BPS-FAF” in the memo line. Families seeking assistance are encouraged to reach out to their counselor or social worker who will connect them to established community resources as well as submit requests for funding needs that cannot be met within existing resources. The BPSF thanks those who have already reached out to volunteer and/or provide monetary donations to help those within our community who are struggling.
