Dear District 8 Family, As we approach the beginning of the 2020-2021 School year we are making plans and getting schools ready for our students. We are staying up to date on current trends and practices regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic. At this time, Governor Burgum and State Superintendent Baesler have not laid out any formal plans for the reopening of schools. We expect to have official guidelines by the end of July and we will keep you posted on what the start of our school year will look like.
