  • Dakota Loves Dr. Seuss Week!
    Dakota Loves Dr. Seuss Week!
    A great big Dr. Seuss thank you to Dr. Dyan Underhill parent of Davis & Mae, Samantha Knighting parent of Jude and Bella, and Jan Nelson, Librarian for coordinating all of the Dr. Seuss events, readers, and celebrations! Thank you to all the guest readers who came to Dakota to read to our students! What a great week it has been! Thank you!
Winter Recess Information!
Minot Public School policy allows students to have outdoor recess as long as the actual temperature is -5 or above, or the wind chill is -15 or above. All students go outside for recess. Appropriate outside clothing is a necessity. All students are required to have snow pants and boots in order to play off of the black top and on the playground equipment. An extra pair of mittens and socks in the backpack is always a great idea. Please note we do not have any extra clothing for students.
