On Nov. 3, 2015, the voters of Forest Lake Area Schools will once again have a chance to vote on a bond referendum that would make repairs and upgrades to all of the district's buildings. On the ballot, the referendum will be divided into two questions.
Passage of Question #1 will mean that the district will receive upgrades in the areas of safety and security, energy efficiency, and the repairs or replacement of many items that have come into disrepair. These include: roofs; boilers; heating, ventillation and air condictioning (HVAC) systems
Passage of Question #2 will mean the high school will have a varsity track, after nearly 15 without a home track. The high school's performing arts center will receive upgrades, and other arts and athletics facilities around the district will receive upgrades, repairs and improvements.
Question #1 must pass in order for Question #2 to pass.
Open House for our students and their families will be held on Wednesday, September 2, from 5:00-6:30. Life Touch will be here to take student pictures from 5:00-7:00. If you are unable to have your student's picture taken that day, there will be a retake day in October.
The Scandia Marine Lions along with our Forest Lake Food Service will be hosting a light supper for families that night during the Open House. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Scandia Elementary that evening!
Forest Lake Area Schools, in partnership with the Forest Lake Police Department, First Resource Bank and other community organizations, will be distributing backpacks and school supplies to Forest Lake Area School District families who have a financial need.
Elementary backpacks will include items that are the same for all students in grades K-6. Secondary backpacks (grades 7-12) will include common items needed for many classes. Backpacks and supplies will be available until they are all given out.
This event will be held on Tuesday, August 18th from 6:30 - 8:00 pm in the Cafeteria in the Central Learning Center, 200 SW 4th Street, Forest Lake.
Please enter the building through Door # 1 (east side of bldg.) or Door # 11 (west side of bldg). Signs will be posted directing you to the Cafeteria.
If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Gwen Patrick at 651-982-8155 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
