After consultation with our district attorney, it was determined that the ruling does not apply to Forest Ridge School District 142 as our district was not named in this lawsuit.
On Monday, all Forest Ridge School District 142 students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while in our school buildings district's other mitigation practices (distancing, high-frequency cleaning) also remain in place. Maintaining the health and safety of our students and staff members is the district's highest priority.
We will continue to encourage all COVID-19 mitigations in the school setting, on our buses and during extra-curricular activities.
Our next Board of Education Meeting will be held in Ridge Early Childhood Center’s Gymnasium on Tuesday, February 15 starting at 7:00pm.
Finally, we ask for your patience and understanding as our district navigates the latest changes to the COVID-19 guidance and rules for Illinois schools. Thank you for your continued support of our students, teachers, and staff. While this year has come with some challenges, we will continue to push forward together.
