CAMPUS CLOSURE INFORMATION

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Forest Lake Education Center and Forest Lake Academy have decided to close our campuses. No students or families are allowed on campus from now until Friday, May 1, 2020 when school is currently scheduled to resume. As this is a fluid situation, that time frame may be extended in the future. Please continue to check your emails and follow us on our media platforms for changes. The decision to postpone or cancel events is not an easy one, especially when countless individuals worked hard to plan them and other countless individuals were looking forward to attending them. However, with the health and safety of our students and our community in mind, we have determined the following changes are necessary.

  • Teachers will be reviewing lesson plans and standards taught for the rest of the year to prioritize learning needs for this the remainder of the school year.
  • Teachers will be sending out an email to all families by Wednesday evening, March 18, on the academic plan for their classes until April 15. In this email, teachers will be letting families know a block of time each day that the teacher will be available to communicate with the family and student.
  • Starting Thursday, March 19, students will have the opportunity to begin working on the distance education set forth by their teacher(s).
