    Back-to-School Connections Newsletter now available

    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.

    Proud to be a Ranger!

    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."
