Statewide winners from Class A and Class AA schools will also receive a four year $1,000 scholarship.

Fergus Falls Public Schools is pleased to announce that for the entire 2020-21 school year, breakfast and lunch will be provided to students at no cost, regardless of income or meal status.

We offer free weekly bulk meals to pick up for 100% distance learners, Hybrid learners, IQ Academy, home schoolers, children not enrolled in school and students who attend other area districts with modified learning models but reside in Fergus as long as they are 18 and under.
