first day of school could help tell pandemic toll


The new Fox Hills Elementary School, a $35 million project, is scheduled to open for the first day of classes in Watford City on Sept 8. 


BISMARCK — Fox Hills Elementary School, a sparkling, $35 million building in Watford City, will open its doors to students for the first time Sept. 8, the first day of a new school year.

The new structure is designed to hold 600 elementary school students, a number larger than the entire K-12 population of the school district just 10 years ago. Since the start of the Bakken oil boom, school enrollment in Watford City has nearly quadrupled. And during a decade of nonstop growth, with Oil Patch communities bursting at the seams, many schools were forced to cram students into overcrowded mobile classrooms.
