Upcoming Changes at Forest Area Community Schools

     As we count down the days to yet another school year, I would like to notify parents and community members of several changes for the 2015 – 2016 school year. During our summer board of education meeting, the Forest Area Board of Education approved the change of location of several classrooms. Our preschool and early childhood special education classrooms will be located at Fife Lake Elementary School. Also, our 4th and 5th grade classrooms will be located in the northwest wing of the middle school. Parents and students may enter through the doors located at the end of this wing of the ms/hs campus. Similar to our 5th grade transition last year, students will eat lunch and make transitions throughout the school day with a minimal amount of interaction with the older students in the building. We have also assembled more playground equipment for these grade levels. Last year’s transition was a great success and many positive comments were stated about the students’ move to the middle school campus. Once again, the primary goals for Forest Area Community Schools remain the same:

1. To continue to increase the educational effectiveness for our Forest Area students.

2. To strive for fiscal responsibility for Forest Area Community Schools in this challenging time of school funding in the State of Michigan.


The Warrior Welcome and open houses will be held on the dates and times below for parents and students who would like to visit classrooms prior to the start of the school year.
