MOORHEAD —The district here is putting together a task force to determine the best approach to address an aging high school: build a new one or renovate and add on to the existing facility. In the 2014-15 school year, a task force pushed to invest $78 million in new construction over the next decade. Voters in November 2015 approved investing $43.1 million for additions to Horizon Middle School and $24.9 million for a new elementary school, while the other three elementary schools got renovations to improve safety and increase flexible learning spaces.
WEST FARGO — Six-year-old David Logulomo was obsessed with water — especially during these hot, humid days — but he didn't know how to swim. So his mother said they planned to take lessons this summer. She never learned how to swim living in South Sudan. But after starting a family in West Fargo 10 years ago, she thought it would be a good skill that would ease her fears of water. "When you are afraid of water, water can kill you," said mother Joyce Lino. Now Lino looks to take lessons someday with her 3-year-old son Jeremiah instead of David.

FARGO—A week after Fargo's Central High School was caught in an epic blaze April 19, 1966, more than 1,000 students there found themselves in the hallways and classrooms at North High School.
