We are going to split up our group in order to better follow social distancing guidelines. If your last name begins with A-F, please come from 5:30-6:00pm. If your last name begins with H-Z, please come from 6:05-6:35pm. At this time, we are asking that only the incoming kindergartners and their parents attend. Each group will gather outside the main entrance where a staff member will greet you and lead you into the building to visit the kindergarten classroom and take a tour of the building. We ask that everyone wear a mask while in the school. If you are uncomfortable coming in with a group, please let us know and we will arrange for a private tour.
If you have any questions, please contact the school at 701-323-4240.

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.

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.
