(Fargo, ND)-- All Fargo Public Schools (FPS) classes and extra-curricular activities are cancelled for Friday, January 7, including the Early Childhood Special Education pre-school program and Adult Learning Center. The decision has been made due to the impact of the forecasted cold temperatures and wind on school buses and the district’s school buildings.
FPS was informed by its bus transportation company, Valley Bus, that a number of buses are not operational and the conditions forecasted tomorrow present increased challenges to keep enough buses working to operate all of our routes. Additionally, a large number of the district’s school buildings have been moved to electric demand curtailment for their heating, which could create building related problems due to the forecasted temperatures. Due to the combination of these factors and their potential impact, schools will be closed on Friday, January 7.
Due to the cancellation, FPS will use the storm make up day built into the school calendar of Monday, April 18; students and staff will be expected to be in school on April 18.
