Because LILA students ride Forest Lake District 831 buses, our school closes when Forest Lake Area Schools cancel. Any weather-related school cancellation announcement for the Forest Lake schools also applies to LILA. Cancellations usually occur by 5:30 a.m.

When school is canceled, LILA sends out an email, posts to Facebook and Twitter, and adds a red banner to the top of the website home page at

LILA students come from about 25 different zip codes, including western Wisconsin. The weather at your home in the morning may be different than the weather in Forest Lake. If your home district closes but LILA remains open, and you determine that is not safe for your family to travel to and from school that day, please email or call the school before 8:00 a.m. to alert us and your student will be excused.
