As the winter season is upon us, it may be necessary on certain days to either close school, start school late, or close early due to inclement weather.

Due to the fact the district covers a considerable amount of square mileage, weather conditions might differ in different parts of the school district. The district's continued effort will be to provide for the safety of all students.

It is important, should both parents work or not be at home during regular school hours, that the student know where he or she can go should an early dismissal of school be necessary as weather conditions can change in a short period of time. It is possible that the buses may return some mornings after they arrive at school or be turned around during their route.

Due to severe weather conditions that may improve during the morning hours, school may begin later, rather than at 8:20 AM, and buses will run accordingly.

History of Sargent Public Schools

The first school was started in 1880 and the present school District #84 was created in 1884 with 25 students. By 1915, the enrollment was at 215 and by the 1940's, the students numbered 340 with 15 teachers. Currently, for 2010-2011 school year, the school has 169 students enrolled. In 1967 several smaller school districts consolidated with Sargent #84 and a complete bus schedule was added. The district currently covers nearly over 200 square miles.

Adopt-A-Classroom invites the community into the classroom in support of teachers and their students. By adopting a classroom, donors form partnerships with specific classrooms providing financial and moral support. The result is a meaningful contribution to education in which donors experience the impact of their efforts and celebrate in a classroom's success.

"With the current state of the economy it is tough to give the way we would like to. One way to help the school is to shop at businesses that give back to the school. We have several area businesses that donate to our programs and I encourage you to keep as much of your business local as you can! This helps our community and the district. But, if you are already doing some shopping at Target PLEASE look into their REDcard program." Taken from December Newsletter
