Upcoming Changes for Quarter 4

Forest Ridge School District 142 has exciting news to share as we look towards the 4th Quarter and the end of the school year. With community transmission rates low, our consistent safety, and in response to the need for our students to return to school in-person for a greater amount of time, District 142 will be moving to Phase 4 starting April 19, 2021.
