If it becomes necessary to cancel school in the future for weather-related issues, make-up days will be added to the end of the school year calendar.

South Point Newsletter
Dear South Point School Parents and Students,
It is hard to believe that Friday, January 17th was the halfway point of the 2013-2014 academic year!
Looking back over the first half of the year, it is very apparent that a key to insuring the success of our educational program here at South Point is the strength and commitment of our team – parents, students, teachers and community all working together as partners in education. It would be impossible to recognize every team member who has given of their time and talents, but we at South Point would like to share our appreciation for your dedication and support. On behalf of South Point School I would especially like to thank our outstanding Parent-Teacher Organization. The next PTO meeting will be on February 4th at 6:30 in the New Heights Library and everyone is welcome. We are currently planning for the South Point Elementary Spring Carnival.
Important Transportation Information…as per district policy students are only permitted to be transported from home to school and school to home. Home is defined as the residence. The School District does have the discretion to allow transportation to licensed daycares, which is our current practice. The only other reason a student may ride on a bus other than assigned is for ISD 595 sponsored activities. (These activities do not include East Grand Forks City recreation programs.) This district-wide transportation policy is in effect for all East Grand Forks Schools. Thank you for your cooperation concerning school safety.
With about half of the school year already gone, please check with your child/children to see if they need additional school supplies. Also, please remember to notify the school office if your telephone number(s), home and email address or if your emergency contact person has changed. It is important that we have current contact information.
