Dear Forest Hills Families,
It is with a broken heart that I report the death of one of our students, Lucas Van Sprange, a freshman at Central High School. Lucas was struck by a car this morning as he was attempting to cross Cascade Road.
We have grief counselors at Central High and the other schools where Lucas was a student (Central Middle School, Goodwillie, and Ada). Lucas will have classmates that knew him when he was a student at Goodwillie who are now in all three high schools. This information has been shared with our staff in all schools in the event that students in any other school may hear about this and need support.
Thank you for your support of each other throughout this day and in the days ahead.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Lucas’ family.
Keep each other close,

Across the state, there are more than 4,100 school board members who dedicate countless hours of hard work to improving education for Michigan children.
Here are some tips and links to websites, especially during cold and flu season, to help keep students healthy. Most school nurses agree: The best way to keep students healthy during the school year is to make sure they wash their hands, and to keep sick kids home. If your child is sick, don’t forget to call the school office to report the absence. For additional information about the cold and flu season and tips to keep you and your family healthy, here are some sites to visit:

Forest Hills Public Schools will be launching an enhanced notification messaging and communication system called SchoolMessenger. But we need to test it first! On Thursday, Dec. 18, FHPS families will receive a SchoolMessenger test message from Superintendent Dan Behm. The test message will be sent to the phone number we have on file for you in our PowerSchool database. Once you receive the test message, you won’t need to do anything at this time.
