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!

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 Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 22 will now be held on Wednesday, February 23 at the River Forest Learning Center at 6:00 p.m.
