Forest Lake Area Schools - Independent School District 831

Due to the heavy snowfall yesterday and today, school will be canceled today at all schools in the district. All before- and after-school activities, including School Age Care, are also canceled. The decision to close school is due mostly to the fact that several roads in the northern part of our schools district are impassable, even though some roads in our district are relatively clear.
