News + Events

Last week, we shared a survey asking families to choose how their students would like to engage in our e-hybrid schedule — either by coming into the building two days each week, or by participating remotely. We initially asked for survey responses by August 24.

In an effort to accelerate our planning, we are now asking that families please return their survey responses (one per LFHS student) no later than this Friday, August 14 at 5:00PM.

We know that some families will have questions regarding these choices before they feel comfortable submitting their survey response(s). With that in mind, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Additional questions may be directed to Dr. Patrick Sassen or Dr. Alan Wahlert.

Please note one important change: Portraits will be taken outside the doors to the auditorium. Students will be socially distanced from one another and from the photographer as their portraits are taken.

Yearbook portraits will be handled differently this year due to COVID 19. They will coincide with textbook pick up. VIP photographers will be at LFHS to take photographs of each student.

Students will need to follow pre-screening process before attending any classes or events at Lake Forest High School

A COVID-19 pre-screening tool is now available to our students. The purpose of the pre-screening process is to certify that any student entering the school building for classes, or extra-curricular activities and events, is free from any symptoms associated with COVID-19. The survey form can be accessed using this link and must be completed each day before arriving on campus. Upon completing the survey, students will receive a verification email through their school email indicating they are "Cleared to Enter."

For questions regarding this process, please contact Lane Linder, Director of Safety and Security.
