Enrollment rises at Northern CassHUNTER, N.D. – The Northern Cass School District had 570 children enrolled in grades K-12 for Wednesday’s first day of school.
There were 316 children in kindergarten through sixth grade, and 254 children in grades 7-12, a district official said.
Last year, opening day enrollment was 254 students in grades 7-12.

“The kids looked like they were ready to go back to school,” he said.

“Hopefully, it will be done sometime in January,” he said.
