  • Safety Letter

    Dear Parents, Patrons and Staff,

    This is a very challenging time for our construction project as we only have 3 months of extensive work to finish prior to the start of school.  The contractors have been very cognizant of us during the school year, but now we have to allow for as much unobstructed time as possible to "get the job done!"

    We want to be flexible to accommodate the summer Park Board schedule as well as the summer school classes in the midst of construction, but plans have to be clearly communicated and strictly adhered to as safety issues have to be our #1 priority!

    We cannot have students walking through the construction site to access the school or fields without following the instructions given in this email.  (The contractors will NOT be able to direct traffic for our student events as their minds are on the construction project itself.) The liability is huge for us all.   We have large truck traffic and heavy machinery operating the site and 5th street is currently being removed for the street and infrastructure project.  That said, please talk to your children about safe access and communicate with coaches/teachers to get clear directions.

    A few reminders: (please look at the attached map for reference)

    • Be cognizant of your surroundings and construction activity.   Be sensitive to the needs of the contractors.
    • Access to the school and fields should only come from the east side of County Road 10 or 5th Street.  There will be NO access into the school on the south or west side at this time and it is entirely off limits to pedestrian or car traffic.  (Exceptions only for construction)
    • All student parking needs to take place on the streets in the surrounding residential areas.
      • Staff may still cross over at the location designated by the bus barn.  (9th Ave. and 5th Street)  
      • Games will allow for patrons to cross over but we will assist in traffic control.  
    • Crossing 5th Street to the school should only happen at the 9th Avenue intersection by the bus barn.  
    • Students should walk (or ride bike) along the bus barn and then cross over to the north end of the school to access door #12 for Driver’s Ed class/Weights class or the baseball field.
    • Do NOT, at any time, access the fields or school site unless practices, games or classes are scheduled.

    Any adults who could assist in supervision or access during your activity would be greatly appreciated.   Also, coaches/teachers should communicate any updates, changes or directives to the teams and parents.

    Thanks again and please know we are doing all we can to accommodate throughout this year as we know it is disruptive for all of us.  But……  Next year we know it will be GREAT! 

    Morgan Forness, Superintendent

Students First, Community Always, Excellence Forever

  • Nurtured Heart Approach Conference

    Central Cass teachers Sara Barnard, Kristie Morris and Julienne Olson attended a six-day Nurtured Heart Approach conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The intensive training focused on building relationships that are genuine and powerful. Through the connections, kids are able to build an inner wealth that promotes success in themselves, in those around them and in the community. Barnard, Morris, and Olson will use the Nurtured Heart Approach in their continued staff and community training at Central Cass. Pictured are all participants who attended the conference with Howard Glasser (far right), creator of the Nurtured Heart Approach.

  • Central Cass Orchard

    Central Cass School District was recently awarded an Orchard Grant through the North Dakota Department of Agriculture. When mature the orchard will be used for as part of the school food service program and as an outdoor educational learning site. Other benefits will include a windbreak for a portion the north side property of the school and as a pollinator area. The Cass County Soil Conservation helped plan which species of trees and shrubs were selected based on their hardiness and fruit production, along with the soil type in our region. The trees and shrubs planted are Nan King Cherry, Schubert Chokecherry, Black Chokecherry, Golden Currant, Juneberry, Haskaps, American Plum, Prairie Yellow Apple, and Dolgo Crabapple. Students from Central Cass fifth grade through eighth along with a couple of volunteers from Fargo helped plant the 120 trees and shrubs. The Orchard is located west of the new softball field.
