Forest Lake Area Schools is facing many financial challenges. The district has been forced to cut millions of dollars each year, and more cuts are forthcoming. The district is asking for public input on ways to address these challenges, and for guidance as to, ultimately, what kind of school district this community wants to have. The district is sponsoring six Community Conversations as a way to discuss the situation, how it came to be, and possible ways of addressing it. The Community Conversations will be held throughout the school district. More information is available on the district's Special Events page. The schedule is as follows:
• Linwood Senior Center - Tuesday, Jan. 30, 6 p.m.
• Columbus City Hall - Monday, Feb. 5, 6 p.m.
• Lino Lakes City Hall - Monday, Feb. 12, 6 p.m.
• Split Rocks in Wyoming - Tuesday, Feb. 20, 6 p.m.
• Scandia Community Center - Monday, Feb. 26, 6 p.m.
• Forest Lake American Legion - Tuesday, Feb. 27, 6 p.m.
On Friday, February 16th from 5:30-8:00PM at Forest View Elementary, is where you and your family will want to be. Lots of great games, prizes and even food to buy will be a happening event for all. If you are able to volunteer please call Kristin Salzman @651-470-2445 or email her at email@example.com or to directly to this link to sign up:
