Good afternoon River Forest Community Members, The extension of the child nutrition waivers was not included in the Omnibus spending bill posted today by the Senate Appropriations Committee. If the waiver extension is not included in the final bill, the waivers will end on June 30, 2022, causing millions of children to face a hunger cliff when they lose access to summer and school meals. These waivers have been critical in supporting nutrition operations so that children have access to school, afterschool, and summer meals throughout the pandemic, and they are still needed to help schools and families recover from and respond to the economic, health, and educational fallout. This will massively affect K12 nutrition programs. If you have a few minutes, please reach out to Senators Braun and Young and request that the waivers be added to the Omnibus Bill. Friday is the deadline to encourage them to support the waivers as the senate votes on Friday! Senator Braun Email: https://www.braun.senate.gov/contact-mike Senator Mike Email: https://www.young.senate.gov/contact/email-todd

Good evening River Forest Families, Because of recent changes in school guidelines by the Indiana State Department of Health for COVID-19 quarantine protocols and reporting procedures, River Forest Community School Corporation will begin to operate as mask optional effective immediately. Please note, there still is a Federal mask requirement on all busses, so River Forest will still need to follow these procedures until the FTA changes this requirement. Families will still be allowed to wear masks if they choose, but there is no requirement for masks except for on busses effective February 23, 2022 7:00 pm

The River Forest Community School Corporation will be on e-Learning tomorrow, Monday, December 20th. We apologize for the inconvenience, but Covid-19 has impacted our transportation department and made providing transportation services an impossibility.

Assignments will be posted and available for students via Google Classroom at 9:00 a.m.
Good morning River Forest, This is Randy Horka on behalf of the River Forest Community Schools, The Lake County Sheriff’s Department was contacted regarding a Tik Tok posting that is now being circulated around the United States. The LCPD Intelligence Unit has researched the origin of this post and the status of its content. The original Internet posting as a “Tik Tok Challenge, ” was for students to skip school on December 17. At some point, the challenge was changed to a school shooting threat. This posting is spreading on the internet across the USA – we are now seeing posts about it from Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, etc. Police Agencies from those States have posted saying they are investigating but at this time there is no credible threat. The river forest schools will have an added police presence tomorrow, Friday, December 17th during arrival and dismissal times. Further, I have been in contact with the Lake Station and New Chicago Police Departments and they will have added patrols around Meister, Evans, and Central Campus. As always, our school resource officers will be onsite at our buildings from bell to bell. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Coats for Kids and Families Organization will be having our annual giveaway Saturday, November 6th from 9am-12pm. Our organization gives away winter coats to those of all ages in need. The giveaway will be held at the River Forest High School Cafeteria. Masks will be required to enter and must continue to be worn until you exit the building. This is an annual event and we are extremely lucky to continue during these unprecedented times. If numbers are large you may need to wait outside until numbers permit you to enter. All those in your party in need of a coat should be present to make sure you are able to get a coat that fits.
