River Forest schools have been in close communication with the Lake County Board of
Health, Porter County Officials, state officials, and local school districts. We have received
notification of an increase in COVID-19 positive test cases in our community and

We realize this will be disappointing for our students. However, the health and safety of
our students and staff members must remain our first priority at all times. We will be in
contact with you when we receive more information and can continue our summer
