Local organizations sponsor "Ranger Point Challenge" for Jessica Erickson

The Drolson Family Foundation and Thrivent Financial of Forest Lake will be honored at Friday's girls' basketball game for their efforts to help raise money for Jessica Erickson and her family. Erickson was severely injured in a car accident last November, and she is facing a long and expensive road back to recovery. Erickson is a member of the Forest Lake girls' basketball team, and The Drolson Foundation has committed to pledging $1 for every point the team scores this year; Trivent has committed to matching that total up to $1,500. These sponsors will be recognized at a presentation immediately after the basketball game, which starts at 7:15 p.m. at the Forest Lake Area High School gymnasium.

Deciding "weather" to close school

The decision about whether to close or postpone school due to massive snowfall or frigid temperatures is made by the district superintendent, Linda Madsen. In making this decision, Superintendent Madsen consults with other district administrators and considers many different factors, the most important of which is the safety of our students. Click here to learn more about the process of making this decision and what information families need to know when weather becomes a factor in the operation of our buses and schools.
