FVE Under Construction 

Forest View Elementary is seeing signs of improvement over the summer months.  Workers are busy getting things moved, removed and re-built to make our school a better place to learn in.  Stay tuned for updates in the days to come.  

Open House 

Forest View Elementary (and Forest Lake Elementary) will be having a combined Open House on Wednesday, August 31st. Come between 4:30-5:30 PM and enjoy some summer treats outside the schools.  At 5:30-7:30 PM all students and families can go into the schools to find their classrooms and bring in their school supplies.  

Back-to-School Event

Forest Lake Area Schools, with support from the Forest Lake Police Department, First Resource Bank, Walmart and others, will be distributing free backpacks and school supplies to Forest Lake Area School District Families to ease back-to-school costs.
Register for your backpack/school supplies by calling Joy Mouch at 651-982-8155 by August 19th.  Registration is not required, but appreciated as it will help us make sure that we have enough supplies for everyone who attends.
                                                Backpacks and supplies will be available for pickup:
Thursday, August 25, 2016 between 6:00 and 8:00 pm
at the Central Learning Center CLC
200 SW 4th Street, Forest Lake, MN
Enter the building through Door #1 (east side) or Door #11 (west side).  Signs will be posted directing you to the pick-up location. 

Bus Postcards mailed out the week before school begins
All busing will revert to students' home address. If your student will attend SAC before and/or after school; if your student will be picked up on a regular basis and will not need busing; or if your student needs to be picked up or dropped off at a different address than home (i.e. daycare, grandparents' home, etc.), you must fill out the Change of Transportation Form. Please bring or email to the Forest View Office ASAP. Do not wait until Open House as that will be too late

For any questions or concerns, please visit the transportation website.


Kindergarten 16/17:

Do you have a child who will be starting Kindergarten with us in the Fall? Registrations are now due! Please stop in or call the office 651-982-8200 for information on how to register.
Update Contact Information

If you have changed your home, cell or work telephone numbers or email address, please call the school office at 651-982-8200 as soon as possible. It is very important that this information is current in our system. If your student lives in two households, each household should have their contact information separate.
