District 8 families, On Friday, Governor Burgum rescinded the COVID – 19 Emergency Orders. The District 8 School Board is following suit and has ended the Smart Restart Plan effective immediately. This will also end the district’s Distance Learning effective at the end of the day on Wednesday, May 5, 2021. This means all students will need to physically be in the classroom on Thursday, May 6, 2021. Students who have been Distance Learning will need to check in their Chromebook to the classroom upon their return. This gives Distance Learners two days to transition back into the school. Current Distance Learners will need to contact Katie Kerschion about busing if needed 701-572-6359. Please follow normal district policies if your child is sick. Thank you, District 8 Administration

Hello Hawk families, We have learned the governor is moving the state into green phase for state restrictions. The Administration is electing to stay in Yellow Phase according to our restart plan. This does mean we will be staying with the mask mandate. The reason we are coming to this conclusion is because our county numbers are not as good as the state numbers. We have a 14 day positivity rate that is increasing and is up to 8.72% as of yesterday. The county active case count has almost doubled since our last board meeting on January 11th. Our goal is to educate the kids the best way we can and with continuing to require the mask, it is helping us keep kids in the school. We appreciate all of you for understanding we want your kids in our schools to learn. Thank you, Administration

A message from Coach Bauska for any 7th and 8th Grade boys interested in Basketball this season... Hello Hawk Family, My name is Joshua Bauska and I’ll be coaching the Middle School Boys' basketball team at Missouri Ridge this year. I currently teach one third grade PE class, Monday & Thursday, at Missouri Ridge School. I spend the rest of my day at Garden Valley Elementary teaching K-2 Physical Education. I'm married to my beautiful wife; Jaylen and we have a baby girl due in March. I am excited for the opportunity to coach Middle School basketball this year. I had the opportunity to coach a reserve basketball team last year while I was in Lincoln, NE. I was able to learn a lot about the coaching side of basketball. Before that, I played college basketball at Trinity Bible College and Graduate School. I have been playing basketball since I was in 3rd grade and I feel like I have a lot of knowledge to share with young athletes at the middle school level. I am excited about coaching the boys and teaching them to be responsible and respectful young men. I believe that coaching goes beyond teaching a sport, but as a coach, I have the opportunity to directly influence and change each student-athletes’ life for the better. My coaches made a huge impact on my life and that is my goal for this year. We will be having a meeting at Missouri Ridge School, tomorrow at 8:30 in the media center for the Middle School boys if they are interested in playing basketball this year. I hope to see you in the gym and go Hawks!! Coach Joshua Bauska

All District 8 schools will be CLOSED tomorrow, Monday, October 12, 2020. We were informed of a positive case of COVID – 19 in one of our schools. We are currently working on a list of all close contacts. Once we have a definite list, we will be in contact with them by phone. This will not be completed before the start of school tomorrow. This closure will be treated like a storm day and Administration will contact any staff that may need to be in the building. The district understands that you may have questions and concerns. However, we ask that you do not call during this time as it will only slow down the process and delay our students getting back to school. Thank you for your cooperation!

District 8 families, We just wanted to inform everyone the school board met last night and approved administrations recommendation to remove the Orange Phase from our Health & Safety Smart Restart Plan. It is agreed and understood by administration that we will stay in Yellow Phase until we either move to Green or can no longer educate our students safely. With this change, starting on Monday. October 5, 2020 every student in the district will be allowed one opportunity to voluntarily switch to Distance Learning at any time throughout the time we are under the Governors Executive Order. This was done because of the great job everyone is doing to protect our district. We ask that parents and staff continue to monitor our health and stay home if sick. Thank you for your cooperation.

A message from Coach Carlson... Greetings Parents and Runners: I am most excited to get the Fall 2020 Missouri Ridge Cross Country season started! Cross Country is open to 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade students. Will begin by getting to know each other with a few open field days starting on August 5th. Practices begin on Monday August 10th and will be held through the 12th at Spring Lake Park. After that they will be held on campus due to teacher in-service and of course preparation for the beginning of the school year. In order to avoid the high temperatures we will have practices in the morning as much as possible until school starts. More specifically, practices the first week (at Spring Lake) will begin at 9:00 am. I will provide an official practice schedule by the 12th. Athletes need to wear proper running attire including running shoes and are required to bring a water bottle. Athletes who provided a physical anytime the 2019-2020 school year are not required at this time to provide a new physical, however, if their last physical was prior to this date an updated physical will be necessary. We understand scheduling a doctor’s visit may be challenging at this time. Please know that our athletics administration is currently researching ways to make this easier for you. The season meet schedule has not been posted. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 flexibility will be key this season. We hope to have more information shortly. Additionally, concerning COVID please exercise proper caution before having your athlete attend practice. This District 8 link provides important information regarding our Safe Restart processes and procedures: https://www.district8nd.com/o/district-8/browse/154271 If you have been out of state and visited a higher incidence region we ask that you adjust your start with us this season. 5th through 8th graders are encouraged to participate in Cross Country although 5th and 6th graders may not be eligible to run at every meet. Parents, please email your athlete’s name(s) and your contact information to Tabitha.Carlson@k12.nd.us so I can update my roster. See ya the 5th at Spring Lake Park (5906 2nd Avenue W)! I’ll be the one in the yellow school bus. Best Wishes, Coach Carlson

At this time, due to COVID-19, we have had government-mandated shut-downs that have reduced our capacity for printing yearbooks.

Dear Eighth Grade Parents, I know that the end of this school year has not been anything any of us have planned or anticipated. We are indeed living in strange times and we are learning to go with the flow. With that said, I want to congratulate you on a job well done. Your 8th Grade student is about to end one journey and begin another as they graduate from Missouri Ridge Middle School and move on to high school. You and your child’s teachers have worked hard to get them where they are today. You should be proud of them and their accomplishments. This year’s Commencement Ceremony will be very different. In an effort to comply with State Social Distancing Guidelines, we are planning a Drive-Thru Graduation on Tuesday, May 19th, beginning at 6:00pm. We’ll have students divided into groups (by last name). You will drive your car through the bus loop. Teachers and staff will be there to cheer on each student as they drive thru. We’ll have music and decorations. Homeroom teachers will come up to your car and hand the graduate their diploma and any awards they have won. Unfortunately, this has to be a quick in-and-out around the bus loop, so we ask that all students and families remain in their cars. Graduates are asked to arrive at the following times on May 19th: Last Name, A-D: 6:00pm to 6:20pm Last Name, E-L: 6:20pm to 6:40pm Last Name, M-S: 6:40pm to 7:00pm Last Name, T-Z: 7:00pm to 7:20pm We invite you and your family to decorate your car and join in the festivities. Hope to see you there.

October 16, 2019 Dear Parents, As we come to the end of our first Quarter of school and look forward to the next nine weeks, it’s time for Parent & Teacher Conferences. We are excited for you to take the time to come in and meet with your child’s teacher(s) and see how they are progressing this school year. At Missouri Ridge School, we have high expectations for all of our students to find success and a sense of accomplishment. That is why we employ the team philosophy. You are a part of your child’s academic team, and we will frequently reach out and extend opportunities for you to have input and be a part of your child’s success here at Missouri Ridge. Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, October 24th, 2019 from 4:00pm until 7:00pm. Conferences will be scheduled for students who are struggling academically or behaviorally. However, if you wish to meet with your child’s teacher(s) for any reason, please feel free to call the school secretary to make an appointment. Parents without an appointment will NOT be able to meet with teachers. During the conference, you will receive your child’s report card and be able to discuss it with the teacher(s). Report cards of students struggling academically will NOT be sent home with students or by mail. Report cards of student who do not need to have a conference will be sent home with the student on Friday, October 25th. Conferences are 10 minutes long, so please make sure you are conscious of the time so that other parents can visit with the teachers. In addition to the Parent Teacher Conferences, the District 8 PTO is sponsoring a Book Fair that will run from Tuesday, October 22nd until Friday, October 25th. It will be held in the Missouri Ridge Library/Media Center from 7:30am until 4:00pm, and during Parent Teacher Conferences until 7:00pm. Thank you again for your cooperation.

They have lost all their belongings in the fire and will need to start rebuilding their lives from scratch. Missouri Ridge School will be collecting money, gift cards, and food items on behalf of this family. If you would like to contribute to this collection, you can drop off your contribution to the front office at Missouri Ridge during school hours next week.

As a result of our large and unexpected increase in enrollment and the time constraints associated with it, we will have to make the following changes beginning on Monday, September 10th : - 4th & 5th Grade Class Changes The 5th Grade classes at Missouri Ridge have grown beyond reasonable capacity and we are going to have to split the two classes in to three classes. To accommodate this move, we will have to move a class of 4th graders to Garden Valley. Mrs. Herland will be the 4th Grade teacher at Garden Valley. Mrs. Wetzel will be the new 5th grade teacher at Missouri Ridge. Parents of students affected by the 4th and 5th grade class switches will be contacted directly. - School Start and End times at Garden Valley and Round Prairie will change to: 8:10am Start Time 3:05pm Dismissal Time If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact Mr. Guglich
