September is National Suicide Prevention Month

We want to take this opportunity to remind families that our school district greatly values the wellbeing, mental health, and emotional wellbeing of our students. Mental health development starts at a young age. Our district is proud to utilize Second Step, an evidence-based PreK - 8 social emotional learning curriculum, to teach important age-appropriate coping skills and strategies to help build resiliency from a young age.

HB 3586

I am writing to inform you that HB 3586 is legislation that requires all Illinois public school districts to adhere to additional requirements related to the provision of special education. At Forest Ridge School District 142, we are now and always have been committed to parents meaningful participation in their children’s IEP meetings.

Information regarding NWEA MAP testing

We are beyond proud of the tremendous efforts of our students, teachers, and community to get the school year off to a strong start. We have been able to provide in-person instruction, while adhering to all health and safety protocols. We are also amazed by the engagement occurring during remote learning.
Steps for Student Self-Certification Update Featured Photo

Steps for Student Self-Certification Update

Thank you for your patience and flexibility over the past two weeks with the self-certification process.  Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, September 8, there will be a change. All students will receive a self-certification message to their individual district email address. This will help make sure each child is certified separately. With students taking their iPads home, notifications to self-certify will be sent to each student’s district email address instead of the parent/guardian addresses.

Schedule for Week of Labor Day

Thank you for a terrific first week of school in Forest Ridge School District 142. As we navigated through in-person hybrid learning, remote learning and the start to the school year, we were presented with a variety of challenges and countless successes.
