November Family Feedback Form

When we started this school year 15 weeks ago, we had no idea that District 142 would become a model district for how to offer both In-Person learning and a full remote learning option in our state, and possibly even in the country. This would be impossible without the participation, commitment, and sacrifice of every single person in our school community to make this work.

November Community Update

We are solidly in quarter two of our 2020-2021 School Year and have proudly had our schools open since August, without any pauses due to COVID. This is a tremendous feat and we all share in this winning process. We must continue to exercise caution, keeping our children home if they feel ill, are displaying any COVID symptoms, or have a COVID exposure. By working together, it offers us the best chance to keep our schools open for students as we head into the winter months.

District Moving to Phase 3 on November 2

Thank you to the entire Forest Ridge School District 142 community for your unwavering support as we started what has been the most challenging school year in recent memory. From the creation of our Return to Learn Reopening Plan, where we determined how to educate our students in the safest way possible while still adhering to the academic integrity of our work, to the implementation of putting our plan into practice, we have made informed decisions, necessary adjustments and could not have done any of this without our entire school community. We are seeing amazing academic and social emotional learning happening across the District, both with our In-Person Hybrid model and our Fully Remote learning plan.
