Forest Lake Area Schools - Independent School District 831

To all website users:

Please be advised that we are currently in the process of transitioning to a new website provider. This process may take 2 - 3 weeks. During this process, some links on your school's website may not work. This includes most of the links that are located at the very top of this website homepage that link to school district pages. Most of the other issues with dead links will occur with links that transfer you to the main school district website ( Some of these links might be for information about enrollment, kindergarten round-up and registration, student forms or other similar topics. If you have an issue, please click here to go directly at the main Forest Lake Area Schools district webpage. That website should be able to provide the information you are seeking.  If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please call your school and someone there will assist you.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this process. 
Thank you.
