Families who are new to the Forest Lake area are encouraged to visit our "Welcome New Families" section of the district website. It's filled with information about the area, registration information, and more.
The Forest Lake Area School Board voted to submit to voters both a levy increase and a bond referendum on Aug. 3. The bond would be a ballot initiative this fall, with early voting starting in September and Election Day on Nov. 7. More details about the referendum can be found here.
Just a reminder to all families that, due to the construction projects that will need to start early next summer, school will start two weeks earlier this fall than it normally does. So the first day of school for all students will be Monday, Aug. 21. Please contact your school for open house information.
As part of a Back-to-School Event, Forest Lake Area Schools, in partnership with the Forest Lake Police Department, First Resource Bank, Walmart, Faith Lutheran Church and other community organizations, will be distributing backpacks and school supplies to Forest Lake Area School District families on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 from 4:30 - 7 p.m. at the Central Learning Center (CLC) located at 200 SW 4th St., Forest Lake, MN.

The Back to School Connections newsletter is now available. In the past, we have published, printed and delivered our Connections Newsletters by U.S. bulk mail to all residents who live within the geographic boundaries of our school district. These newsletters are generally sent out two or three times per school year. Unfortunately, this has proven to be an expensive process, and in light of current technology the district made the decision to move to an electronic form of communication as the primary way to deliver these newsletters. We hope you enjoy reading the entertaining and informative articles that we produce for our families.
Forest Lake Area Schools has produced three promotional videos featuring several current students and parents talking about what they feel are the best things about being a "Ranger." The videos are intended to be both informational and inspirational. Any students, parents or families who are choosing a school are encouraged to consider becoming a Ranger at Forest Lake Area Schools. The videos are available by clicking the following links: District Video #1, District Video #2 and District Video #3.
