Crash course for kids
Does your child ride a bus?
- Students should remain seated while the bus is in motion.
- Students should face forward.
- Students should keep their hands to themselves--no touching others.
- Voice levels should remain normal, with no screaming or yelling.
- No foul language or inappropriate hand gestures.
- No food or drinks, with the exception of water bottles.
- All school rules apply
Riding a school bus is a privilege, not a requirement by SED. Please ensure that your students are adhering to the rules. Students who do not follow these rules will receive school consequences and may be removed from the bus.
When a student is unable to attend school due to illness or other causes, parents/guardians are required to notify your child’s homeroom teacher and school office by 7:50. Please note parent name, student name, homeroom teacher, and reason for absence.
If a student needs to leave school during the day for a health-related appointment, please give your homeroom teacher and the school office advance notice of the appointment and time. This will allow staff to prepare for departure and missed schoolwork. Students shall be picked up at the office (Door 1). If someone other than a parent/guardian or person with permission (with a signed note on file at the office) is picking up the student, special directions to permit the child to leave must be received from the parent/guardian. No student shall be released to someone other than a parent/guardian or another pre-approved person.
Please contact the office at 812-817-0900 Extension 2 or email@example.com
Doctors’ notes are required for health-related appointments

Forest Park Basketball Cheer Clinic
Ranger Youth Wrestling
The Ranger Youth Wrestling fundamental program will begin the first week of February.
Practices will be on Mondays and Wednesdays in February when school is in session. Practice
times are based on participation per grade and the number of coach volunteers. We will send
out times to families on January 23rd. Practices will be at Forest Park High School in the
wrestling room and will last an hour per session.
The program will have two inter-league matches on March 6th and 8th . We do not require
wrestlers to have a USA Wrestling card.
Ranger Youth Wrestling program will continue our practice focus of the basics. Instead of
teaching all aspects of wrestling, we are focusing on takedowns and basic top / bottom
positions for our primary kids. Simplifying this very complicated sport for our young wrestlers
will help them gain a deeper understanding of this essential skill. Our older wrestlers will
practice other aspects of wrestling later in the season.
Wrestlers should wear shorts, shirts that are snug, and wrestling shoes. Wrestling shoes are
optional, but street shoes may not be worn inside the wrestling room. Our program has many
wrestling shoes for kids to use, but it is first come, first serve. Wrestlers can participate in
socks. Wrestling shoes are usually cheap compared to other sports.
Wrestlers must follow good hygiene practices and bathe at home after each practice. Our
wrestling mats are cleaned daily. We usually have 50 youth participants, so it is vital that
wrestlers are clean coming in and wash well before going to bed.

Application Deadline for Teacher Scholarships Approaching
Students have until January 31 to apply for multiple opportunities
(INDIANAPOLIS) – Students in high school or college who are planning to teach or work in school administration in the State of Indiana have until January 31 to apply for three scholarships – Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship, Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Scholarship for Minorities and Student Teaching Scholarship for High-Need Fields.
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education is encouraging students to act quickly, as there is limited funding available. All three financial aid opportunities can be applied for at ScholarTrack.IN.gov.
Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship
The Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship provides 200 top-performing high school and college students interested in pursuing a career in education the opportunity to earn a renewable scholarship of up to $7,500 per year of college (up to $30,000 total). In exchange, students agree to teach for five years at an eligible Indiana school or repay the corresponding, prorated amount of the scholarship. The Commission will review all applications and notify applicants of their scholarship status via email by March 24, 2023.
“I am really grateful to have received the (Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship). It made paying for college so much cheaper,” said current Indiana University South Bend student and scholarship recipient Brianne Simmons. “Now, instead of finding ways to pay for college, I can focus on saving for when I graduate.”
To qualify for the scholarship, students must meet one of the following academic requirements:
- Rank in the top 20% of their high school graduating class
- Have a top 20th percentile score on the ACT (26) or SAT (1130)
- Have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale
