Coronavirus (COVID-19) has arrived in North Dakota. WCSD8 is monitoring the situation closely and participating in discussions with Governor Burgum, ND Dept. of Health and ND Dept of Instruction.
Communication regarding district actions will be communicated using this page, instant alert (voice and text), the school Facebook pages and local media.
Governor Burgum has ordered all schools closed March 15-20 to slow the spread of COVID-19 and allow administration to plan re-opening and/or extended school closings.
Later this week we will be providing specific information regarding plans for the week of March 23. In the meantime the best information we can provide you comes directly from state and federal agencies at the following links:
