    IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR 7TH GRADERS AND IMMUNIZATIONS


    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 Raptor.  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.
