We are experiencing some phone issues throughout the district today. We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.
Williston Basin School District #7 takes the safety and security of our students and staff very seriously. Recently, our School Board passed board policy KAAB, School Volunteer Program. This policy states that anyone who wants to volunteer in our schools during the school day must submit to, and pass, a background test. While we understand that this may cause an inconvenience to some, we feel strongly that this policy is in the best interests of student and staff safety. For those of you who want to volunteer with events such as classroom parties, field trips, assisting with carnivals, fairs, field days, reading days, lunch in a classroom (not in the gym or lunchroom), etc., please contact Barb Erickson (701)572-1580 ext. 01012 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The school board has also passed board policy KAAA, Visitors in Schools. For the safety and security of everyone, those of you who want to visit our schools during the school day as spectators to watch assemblies, talent shows, programs, concerts, or to have lunch with your student in the gym or lunchroom, will need to have your current photo I.D. scanned at the front office and receive a visitor badge to wear during your time in the building. We appreciate your support in helping to keep our students and staff safe. If you have any questions, please contact your building administrator, or the Superintendent.
For anyone needing food assistance, Great Plains Food Bank will be in Williston today from 4:30 - 6:15 p.m.
