  • This is an important message from Forest Middle School for all parents, guardians, visitors and volunteers.  Our school, along with all Bedford County school facilities, has transitioned to a new check-in and check-out system called Lobby Guard.  It is very important to know that a driver’s license scan will be required for anyone who will be checking out a student or for anyone who will be in the building as a visitor or volunteer.  Thank you for your assistance and we look forward to a great year.
  • Towards the end of each school year, the School Nutrition Program establishes a cut-off date for meal charges in the school cafeteria. This cut-off date is established to give the program sufficient time to collect outstanding charges and clear up accounts before the end of the school year. This year the last day that students will be allowed to charge school meals is Friday, May 11 th . Beginning on Monday, May 14 th, students must either have money with them when they come through the serving line or have sufficient funds on their student meal account to cover what is purchased. If a student comes to the cafeteria to eat breakfast or lunch and does not have the funds to cover the purchase, cafeteria staff will give the student an alternate meal of toast & milk for breakfast and a sandwich and milk for lunch until funds are received. Parents are always welcomed to call the cafeteria manager at their child’s school to check their child’s account balance. They may also call the School Nutrition Office at 586-1045 ext. 10224. Any questions concerning the cut-off date for cafeteria charges may be directed to Karen Arthur, School Nutrition Supervisor at 586-1045 ext. 10224. The School Nutrition Program truly appreciates your business.
