New Texting Option Available for Announcements Text Message

Forbes Road School District is excited to announce the availability of parents and guardians to receive text messages from the school for announcements.  On Tuesday, November 23rd a "trial run" occurred sending messages to parents and guardians.  Parents and guardians who have their cellphone number on file with the school received this message.  If you did not receive the message and would like to, please email abrown@frsd.info with your name and phone number to be added to the system.  If you did not receive the message and would like to, please email abrown@frsd.info to remove your name.  This is new for us so we appreciate your patience as we work through any issues that may occur.  

World News Rankings Best Elementary Schools

US News and World Report has ranked the Best High Schools for several years using a combination of reading and math proficiency as well as the school’s ability to educate all students regardless of their socio-economic status. Using the same measures, 2021 marks the first year that the news agency has also ranked the Best Elementary Schools. 

Clarification on the Quarantine Process, Makeup Work and Absences

We’ve had some parent questions about whether receiving a letter notifying them of a close contact exposure in the classroom or on the bus means that their child must quarantine.  No, it does not.  Those letters only provide general information that there was a close contact.  If your child were actually a close contact and had to quarantine, you would receive a phone call from the school nurse to notify you. 

T-Mobile Hotspot Program

Forbes Road School District is teaming up T-Mobile to get internet to families in our district.  For $30.56 per month you will receive a hotspot with unlimited data.  

September 3rd letter

Schools all over Pennsylvania, including our beloved Forbes Road, are currently facing the mostly deeply divisive educational environment of our lifetimes. Many of our community— from board members and staff to parents and business owners—feel that the decision about whether a child should wear a mask at school should be left to parents.

Remote Connectivity Locations

If you are experiencing long download times for lessons at home, the following Community Network Centers have been made available free of charge.  Forbes Road School District would like to thank the Wells Tannery Presbyterian Church, the Hustontown Fire Hall, and the Freedom Worship Center for their willingness to provide Internet connectivity for Forbes Road students.
