If your child will be attending SONIC (before and/or after school; if your child will be picked up on a regular basis and will not need busing; or if your child needs to picked up or dropped off at a different address than home (i.e. daycare, grandparents' home, etc.) you must fill out the Bus change form.  Please drop off this completed form or fax it to 651-982-3299 ASAP.  Do not wait until Open House, as that will be too late to make the changes for the start of school.

Welcome Principal Newby


Forest Lake Elementary had to say good bye to Principal Jeff Ion after nine successful years here. Mr. Ion has taken a new career path and we at FLE wish him the best. We hope he will stop by to visit us and tell us how much he misses us too.
Mr. Kenny Newby will be our new principal and we are excited to welcome him to FLE.   Mr. Newby was the former assistant principal at Southwest Junior High.  He comes with high recommendations and probably some new ideas and plans for our school.  
Once Mr. Newby gets settled into his new role, there's a good chance he will be sending you some updates on what's in store for FLE.  We look forward to getting to know and work with him in the coming year.  


The mission of Forest Lake Area Schools, as a gateway to unlimited opportunities, is to ensure that each learner will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to experience success and personal fulfillment while actively engaged in a global society.  Our exceptional leaders and highly-skilled, caring staff, partnering with families and communities, will engage students through creative, rigorous and relevant educational experiences in culturally responsive, safe and technologically-advanced learning environments.
