Today Matters - October 16, 2020

After several months of attending to ensuring we are providing solid instruction to our students, while adhering to guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone, I am happy to reintroduce the Superintendent’s Blog, “Today Matters.” This blog will offer yet another way for us to connect with our families and school community; sharing stories, thoughts, and commentary about life inside our buildings with those we serve.


There is no school on Friday, October 9 and Monday, October 12. School resumes with Hybrid A students on Tuesday, October 13.

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.
