Message to Otter Fans Regarding Fan Attendance


As we kick off our winter seasons there unfortunately will be very few - if any - tickets available to the general public with the restrictions in place for this season.

However, we still want you to be able to enjoy your favorite Otter Activities.

The Otter Activity Calendar will be your one stop shop for all information regarding broadcasts and schedules for winter activities.

We can't wait to invite you back into our venues to cheer on the Otters soon!

Meal Program update

December 4, 2020

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. This is for both in-person and distant learners. Food Services is not the only program driven by Applications for Educational Benefits so we still need families who might qualify to complete and submit their applications for Educational Benefits if they haven't already. You can get to that form HERE, or request a paper copy at any school.

All school meals are provided free regardless of income at all locations as well as off campus meals provided by the district for the 20-21 school year.

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.

To sign up for bulk meals and to get the most up to date Food Services information please visit foodservices.fergusotters.org. Also Like and share us on Facebook at Otter Food Services.
