District 115 Information

Lake Forest High School Communication Department utilizes several communication methods to help LFHS families and the community stay informed.

These include this website, the parent E-newsletter “HIGHLIGHTS," press releases to various newspaper/magazine publications, and an Instant Alert telephone system.

The Lake Forest High School newsletter “HIGHLIGHTS” provides LFHS families with frequently scheduled information that is timely and informative about LFHS regarding Board of Education, Class News, Department News (Athletics/Academics/Community Education/Student Services (Academic Advising, Testing, College Resources, Student Clubs, Service-Volunteer opportunities)/Parent Opportunities/Performances. Weekly E-News updates are also sent. Information found in the newsletter will also be posted on this website and when appropriate, will be included in press releases. Postings to www.lfhs.org reflect the same news that is acceptable for the HIGHLIGHTS newsletter.

While we recognize that there are many worthwhile opportunities for the community at large that may involve or be of interest to the high school community, we are not able to acknowledge requests for publicity that do not relate directly to a school event and/or student involvement.

Individuals/Organizations who have publicity requests of this type should feel free to contact local newspaper/magazine publishers including but not limited to:
