Weekly COVID-19 Newsletter

Each week the Board of Education puts together a weekly COVID-19 Community Newsletter. This newsletter is based on the most current information available.

December Community Update

Forest Ridge School District 142 is committed to the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. Following identified protocols is of the utmost importance.  As a reminder, all staff members, visitors to the building and students over the age of two must wear a face mask while at school and on a school bus, consistent with guidance issued by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

Today Matters - December 7, 2020

“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” while festive in its positive message, this time of year can also be extra stressful.

It’s hard not to be totally consumed by all the things we need to get done in a day, let alone the next three weeks.

December Community Update

Thank you for your continued support and assistance throughout this school year. With our strong community relationships and the understanding of the importance of both learning and safety, District 142 has strived to create a sense of pride and positivity for our staff, students and families

November Family Feedback Form

When we started this school year 15 weeks ago, we had no idea that District 142 would become a model district for how to offer both In-Person learning and a full remote learning option in our state, and possibly even in the country. This would be impossible without the participation, commitment, and sacrifice of every single person in our school community to make this work.

November Community Update

We are solidly in quarter two of our 2020-2021 School Year and have proudly had our schools open since August, without any pauses due to COVID. This is a tremendous feat and we all share in this winning process. We must continue to exercise caution, keeping our children home if they feel ill, are displaying any COVID symptoms, or have a COVID exposure. By working together, it offers us the best chance to keep our schools open for students as we head into the winter months.

October Community Update

As always, we greatly appreciate your continued support and wanted to continue to reach out with important, specific information regarding the end of the first quarter, the beginning of second quarter, and a phase change to Phase 3 of the District 142 Reopening Plan.


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